Bug in Sage test?
« on: August 21, 2010, 11:19:10 PM »

When I did the sage test I had to use server.leithalweapon.geek.nz

Originally leithalweapon.geek.nz's nameserver was my registrars' ns1.1stdomains.co.nz which only has IPv4 connectivity.

So when I told it to use server.leithalweapon.geek.nz, I of course did not pass, so I tried again with leithalweapon.geek.nz, this still didn't work.

But then I thought the New Zealand DNS server has IPv6 so I only entered geek.nz (still a valid substring) and it worked!

Is this correct? Seemed too easy to me.

Anyway I changed my nameserver to HE's DNS and now I have real IPv6 glue.

That's because the test is for the domain, not hosts.

Sorry but I can't figure out what you said.

geek.nz is your domain, right?  you were trying to tell the sage test to check if one of your hosts had glue, which isnt what the test is used for.

My registered domain is "leithalweapon.geek.nz"

.geek.nz is a New Zealand 2nd level domain.

The offcial list is here:

OK, but the document states that they shall not grant 2LDs that brings the namespace into disrepute (Section 5.4.5).  "Geek" is a derrogatory term and should never have been granted according to their rules.

Regardless, it is a non-standard registerable 2LD as compared to those of other ccTLDs, and you expect that every exception be recognized?

Oh I see now...

You just have a list of the common 2LD's like .co.* .net.* etc

That makes sense... so those of us lucky enough to have wide minded national DNS operators can enjoy the loophole! <predicts massive signup for .geek.nz from HE users>

Yeah it's quite a funny story how .geek.nz came to exist... basically some guy was looking at the rules and figured out that a "geek" met all the criteria and submitted an application... and they had no choice!

Here is the proposal letter: http://dnc.org.nz/story/proposal-create-new-second-level-domain-geeknz

It is now a very popular 2LD in New Zealand!

Well sorta.  I'm the person responsible for the .geek.nz domain getting through the .nz 2LD creation process.  Before long in the registration process it was obvious that having a .geek.nz domain was something that people actually wanted.

The score in the initial straw pole for its creation was:
956 FOR
103 AGAINST
6 ABSTAIN


As at 30 Nov there were 1,027 .geek.nz domains.

.geek.nz now has as about as many domains as .govt.nz, .ac.nz or .gen.nz and more than .maori.nz

And just to bring this back on topic.   YES  www.geek.nz has an AAAA record and IPv6 connectivity.  Infact it contains a list of NZ sites which also contain IPv6 connectivity.

Enjoy

None of the 2LDs of .NZ seem to have made it to lists like http://publicsuffix.org/ which indicate the valid, registerable subdomains under each TLD (with the exception of .NAME, which would have too many to exhaustively list).  Granted, the wikipedia page for the .NZ TLD does have a list, and it appears that domain registrations are all third-level.  However, the issue becomes how widely know is the list of 2LDs.

By trying "server.leithalweapon.geek.nz", that's a 4LD, which isn't valid for the test.
