However, Verisign was not the first TLD operator to think of wildcarding their domains, and we already maintain a mechanism for preventing hostnames that resolve to the ip addresses of these wildcarding systems from being included in the survey.
Our current list of wildcarded TLDs and excluded ip addresses is as follows:
*.AC has address 126.96.36.199 *.CC has address 188.8.131.52 *.COM has address 184.108.40.206 *.CX has address 220.127.116.11 *.MP has address 18.104.22.168 *.MUSEUM has address 22.214.171.124 *.NET has address 126.96.36.199 *.NU has addresses 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 *.PH has address 220.127.116.11 *.PW is an alias for wfb.dnsvr.com. (18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124) *.SH has address 126.96.36.199 *.TD is an alias for www.nic.TD.
