Simple... most browsers will allow you to enter an ip address without the dots inbetween them, ie 1942421301 as opposed to 194.242.130.1 .

As for all the %7e stuff, well the '%' just tells the browser to interpret the next two characters as hex as opposed to your regular characters... %20 (I think) is the same as the space (" ") character.

gravity, then what is the difference between 194.242.131.1 and 194.242.13.11?
both of them seem like "http://1942421311/..."
:)

whatever you type in the URL box is a domain name if it does not look like an IP address separated by dots, so these might be domain names all numbers pointing you somewhere.

It would appear (to me) that:

1942421311 = 194.242.131.1

and

194242013011 = 194.242.13.11

Without the .'s, you probably need the 0's (but I am not sure).

Seems to me that the owner of here.com could create any number of subdomains, e.g., we.are.not.here.com, we.are.here.com, you.do.not.belong.here.com

I don't think there is any prohibition against this (except the length), but I may not know what I am talking about.

I am certain, however, that the address:

http://we.are.here/we.are.not.here.com is almost certainly invalid.

first off if you do 1942421301 in a broswer it should NOT go to 194.242.130.1, if you wanted to goto 194.242.130.1 via what is called it's longIP you would go use 3270672897.

for the url in the question:
http://3520111400/  ...etc

3520111400 is the same as 209.208.163.40

gravity is correct about the %.

Here is a url with info all about this here http://www.nwi.net/~pchelp/obscure.htm

Good point. The IP without the dots is not simply the IP without the dots. It's completely different altogether.

In fact, it's in hex code.

This is incorrect.

3520111400 = 209.208.163.40

if that IP was in Hex it would be D1.D0.A3.28 or D1D0A328

but if you took it a step further you can get the longip by taking the ip, octect by octet, into hex, then remove the periods, then convert back to decial...

but 3520111400 is not in hex itself.

Well, that's what I meant. I read it somewhere a long time ago and my memory isn't that fresh.

Thanks for pointing that out!
