http://ai/





Clickable URL: http://ai/

  $ host ai
  ai.domain.name has address 78.47.226.171
  ai.domain.name mail is handled by 10 mail.ai.domain.name.

  $ curl -I -H 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0' http://ai/
  HTTP/1.1 302 Found
  Server: nginx/1.10.3
  Date: Fri, 14 Feb 2020 15:51:14 GMT
  Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
  Connection: keep-alive

Also, see http://in/, http://io/, http://cc/, http://us/, etc.

When we try to resolve an unqualified domain name, a DNS query is sent with ".domain.name" automatically appended to the name. For example, see the following tcpdump output when I ping ai:

  $ sudo tcpdump -nn 'port 53'
  tcpdump: data link type PKTAP
  tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode
  listening on pktap, link-type PKTAP (Apple DLT_PKTAP), capture size 262144 bytes
