It looks like the problems haven't quite ended yet.

As far as I knew, the *.SE redirects were permanent and would always point to the actual domain.

  • working for me too—have you flushed your DNS cache? I seem to remember Jeff mentioning that was causing the same thing to happen for chats. – waiwai933 Dec 29 '10 at 2:48
  • Hmmm... maybe it is a cache issue after all. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Dec 29 '10 at 2:49
  • If this was a cache issue, I am going to close this as too localized. If that wasn't the case, please flag to re-open. – Robert Cartaino Dec 29 '10 at 3:41
  • I'm seeing this too – Kyle Cronin Dec 29 '10 at 3:47
  • @Robert: It seems like there is more to this issue than first suspected... see Kyle's answer below. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Dec 29 '10 at 4:25

The ubuntu.stackexchange.com alias was lost during a recent edit of our sites table. This should be resolved.


I'm seeing this too. I get a 404 when I try to telnet into the IP I get from dig. Requesting apple.stackexchange.com from the same IP works fine:

London-2:~ kyle$ dig ubuntu.stackexchange.com

    Odd. I just tried the exact same thing, and got a 301 Moved Permanently. – waiwai933 Dec 29 '10 at 3:54
  • @waiwai933 did you send the request to the same IP as I have in my post? – Kyle Cronin Dec 29 '10 at 4:04
  • Yep. Here's the output. – waiwai933 Dec 29 '10 at 4:14

    I tried that IP and got the SO homepage. – Jon Seigel Dec 29 '10 at 4:20

    @Jon: That's because you omitted the host HTTP header. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Dec 29 '10 at 4:23
  • @George: Oops, yeah. I get a 301 now. – Jon Seigel Dec 29 '10 at 4:26
