Thread: Http://www.google.com./

  1. #1
    the .com./ site is different to the standard .com - note the English under the Google logo which doesn't appear on .com/

    Each part of a domain name is correctly terminated with the <dot> and, although you don&#39;t often see it used within the context of a browser, it is not incorrect to do so.

    Anyone had ideas how to do this?

    maybe because www.google.com.pl is polish www.google.com.au/ is australian www.google.com.br/ is brazil and www.google.com./ is english?

    Could be that ./ is default in english.

    Any ideas how to forward .com./ to http://www.google.com/intl/en/ (with domain masking)

    This is probably not what your looking for but...
    if you go to control panel - regional and language options
    and you put the "location" to uk, auzi, us or any other english base country - google will then automaticallly - be english - if you put it on isreal - you get isreali google.

    Nah not that. This is technical not related to client-side. It is done at back-end.

    Anyways, I found out the reason

    Technically, all domains end with a "." in the end sort of ending statement like one might do in C++ or java (using a ";")

    So normally if yout put a "." in any domain it will still end up in the same page. But google has customized it so that if someone puts a "." in the end of any domain (even after www.google.com.au to www.google.com.au.) it will take automatically to a default google english page. This page even has a link to google.com
