  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Now it will open .club but also attempt to open any string which looks like sometext.abcdefghij (up to 10 chars after the dot) instead of searching for it. Enumerating all those crazy 100s of new TLDs is unreasonable in scope of current development.

A comment form the user who initially reported this issue to us:

Basically this is not fixed properly and it will just be a matter of time before you will have to re-fix this! The ICANN webpage that the comment refers to shows TLD names of e.g. "SANDVIKCOROMANT" and "BRIDGESTONE" which already exceed the 10-char limit that is imposed now. Basically, I think you need to pass any string (containing at least one dot) first to DNS and see if it resolves, if it doesn't then you can search for it.

You'd have to search through the various RFCs to find the latest definition of what TLDs etc can look like, especially with Internationalized Domain Names added into the mix...
