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 188.8.131.52 *.CC has address 184.108.40.206 *.COM has address 220.127.116.11 *.CX has address 18.104.22.168 *.MP has address 22.214.171.124 *.MUSEUM has address 126.96.36.199 *.NET has address 188.8.131.52 *.NU has addresses 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 *.PH has address 18.104.22.168 *.PW is an alias for wfb.dnsvr.com. (22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199) *.SH has address 188.8.131.52 *.TD is an alias for www.nic.TD.
