By mistake typed www.nanog.com while trying to visit http://www.nanog.org/ and landed to localhost. The url www.nanog.com resolves to localhost somehow, even with google’s DNS server.
Just for curiosity sake, does any one have any idea why www.nanog.com resolves to localhost?
C:\Windows\System32>nslookup www.nanog.com 18.104.22.168
C:\Windows\System32>nslookup www.nonexistingwebsite.com 22.214.171.124
*** google-public-dns-a.google.com can’t find www.nonexistingwebsite.com: Non-existent domain
Because the owner of the domain name set it up that way.
