High quality is systemic, React is a self-fulfilling prophecy, Difftastic, Devbox & the shortest URLs on the net (The Changelog) |> Changelog


Let’s end up with a enjoyable one, we could? James Williams got down to discover the shortest URLs on the web. Are you able to guess what they’re?

When you’re considering Google’s g.co or Fb’s m.me, you’re shut however no cigar. How do you get shorter than that? James says, “there’s nothing stopping TLD registry operators serving A information on the apexes of their TLD zones. For instance, if Verisign (the operator of the com TLD registry) wished, they might add an A file on the apex of the com TLD zone – com would then resolve to that IP, and your browser would connect with that IP whenever you visited https://com

With that information in hand, James scanned the interwebs to see if any registry operators truly do that. And the reply is: sure

One instance, when you go to http://ai you’ll hit a retro touchdown web page for “Offshore Data Companies”, who preserve the .ai TLD. Loopy, huh.
