Before I begin, I wanna ask: Godaddy, Great firewall of china issue?.

My next question is: So I was checking a domain.. Did direct type-in.

The HostGator was Tracksuits(.)com.

It seemed really weird... The first time I typed it in, it went to Ebay/suits but the link was crazy.. like http://sz75blabla.tinker.zeroclick.sendori, then I hit the back arrow and it went to Sedo I was like what the heck, and type it in again and then it went to a different parked page..

Do a direct type in and see if it happens for you as well? My guess is it's putting Affiliate Cookies onto your computer... (just clean your history and they will be gone) but is this some kind of trick that I just came across or what? Those tricky guys in the Grand Caymans are up to something!..

Maybe US traffic is getting the behavior and other IPs are getting NameAdmin..

Yah, but this is wrong.

It was with no e... The samething happened to Justin when he did a direct type-in for is just forwarded.....

One *possible* way to do this is to program the DNS servers to associate multiple IP address records (A records) with the domain. This is frequently used in load balancing, so when you type in "" you can potentially go to any one of several distinct hosts on the net. To do it just slip in additional A records into the DNS and the bind/whatever software does the rest.

Usually they point the different IP's to a server that replicates the behavior on multiple web servers, but that is not a requirement. You could have the same HostGator go to multiple different websites... of course that would confuse users.

NS1.15X.NET - points to


Maybe he has some way of diverting american traffic to the links you posted -I don't know ??.

I would imagine he's got a BIG room full of servers working hard for him.
