Schlechte Nachrichten für Fritz!box User: http://nic.box/ Euer http://fritz.b…

[WayBack] Schlechte Nachrichten für Fritz!box User: http://nic.box/ Euer http://fritz.box ist nicht mehr das, was es sein sollte. EDIT: Muahahaha … – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+

Now there is http://nic.box/ for the new [WayBackbox top level domain and AVM does not yet have the pre-registered fritz.box there effectuated (because .box is not in final registration state yet).

kris@h1755802:~> host fritz.box
fritz.box has address 127.0.53.53
fritz.box mail is handled by 10 your-dns-needs-immediate-attention.box.

The joke is in the cryptic “your-dns-needs-immediate-attention” and usage of 127.0.53.53. to indicate a gTLD name collision.

Chrome knows about ICANN though and explains it in a slightly more readable form when browsing to http://fritz.box (:

This site can’t be reached

This site on the company, organization or school intranet has the same URL as an external website.

Try contacting your system administrator.

ERR_ICANN_NAME_COLLISION

ERR_ICANN_NAME_COLLISION is the way that recent (well v43+) Google Chrome versions indicate that a top level domain is now taken.

The new toplevel domains post quite some issues with the Chrome omnibox for searching filenames having an extension now has become a top level domain (like .zip and the [WayBackzip top level domain).

Lessons learned:

  • while searching, always start with a double-quote
  • use .local for your local domain

A similar thing caused quite some headaches when a large insurance company used “.insim.biz” domain as their domain name for the internal WAN as .biz had been registered as early as 2001 but they got the domain in 2008.
