What do you mean by discussion? Do you mean the discussion page?

comment Is it possble to discover that an addon domain is owned by the same person as the main domain?
@cybergeek654 A subdomain is a location that can be pointed anywhere, not just a subdirectory of the domain. You can put www.example.com on a different server serving a totally different site from example.com. This is how services like FreeDNS DDNS work.

@Martijn In shared hosting reverse DNS does not necessarily reveal anything, and the domains might not even be on the same server.

comment Are Whois websites trustable?
I find it is easier to check domain availability on registrar sites than on whois sites. For example, the Namecheap interface is fast and easy to use plus it includes all of the new TLDs.

comment How to make my websites content available as Tor .onion and Clearnet .com?
Nginx won't care if the site is served in the clear or over the TOR network. You can set up server blocks ('virtual servers') for your different domains, which I suspect is necessary, though perhaps not. Either way, you can have both domains served from the same directory to reduce content duplication, it's just a matter of figuring out how to serve a TOR website at all. I suspect you may get better answers in the Server Fault SE site (I flagged the question for a moderator to consider migration).

comment Does a 3rd party spamming with links to a website get that website blacklisted?
SPF and DKIM can be set up such that everyone knows where mail from your domain is supposed to originate. Beyond that, the filters don't usually care about the contents of the email, just the servers that are sending the email.

comment How does DNS detect changes in nameserver IP address?
@neodymium To answer your question, the registrar is not resolving any name servers. That is being done by the name servers used by the owner the domain.

comment How does DNS detect changes in nameserver IP address?
Well, we can't really account for servers that don't follow the standard, as this would make answering questions impossible since someone not following a standard may be doing just anything. I would be interested in seeing some evidence of this, as I've never experienced it.

Well, you could counter using facts instead of ordering me to go away, because I won't. I make posts on facts, and I'm not concerned about imaginary point counts. I voted down because I saw many errors and considered the answers poor answers to the question. Isn't that the purpose of down-voting?

The whois record is used to find the location of the DNS server for a domain. It's completely relevant to the OP.

@dan Name server records "indicating the IP addresses" is not part of the record, it's part of the job of the name server, which is why that quote is in the DNS hosting part of the article.
