    Site resolving wihtout a TLD? News to me!

    This is a new one to me. Wondering if anyone knows how they got it to work.

    http://3567648438/

    Thats a fully working website with no TLD?

    Specifically used in an ebay spoof:

    http://3567648438/eBayISAPI.dllSignIn.php

    I was thinking some nifty mod_rewrite rules in play there, but it cant be, because it resolves.

    How is it possible? Did I miss some great recent change in the DNS system where you don't need a TLD to resolve a site?

    And all you have to do is enter the host back in there to get the original.

    Code:
    Record Type:  	IP Address
    IP Location: 	United Kingdom United Kingdom - Terrestrial Infrastructure For New Skies Uk Network
    Reverse DNS: 	212-165-254-182.reverse.newskies.net
    Blacklist Status: 	Clear
    Code:
    Decimal
