Hi saw this thread in a notables.
Iong time ISP veteran and DNS expert.
This seems to be a problem with half of the zdnscloud.com nameservers. (the .top domain registrar's DNS servers.) They are how authority for 8kun.top gets delegated to ns1.vanwanet.com and ns2.vanwanet.com.
Only 4 of these servers seem to be working correctly
a.zdnscloud.com through d.zdnscloud.com are serving correct DNS answers In my testing all of those servers correctly delegate authority to vanwanet.
e through j are returning random A records to NS queries. (wtf?) Half of their root nameservers are not behaving correctly.
This problem may actually affect all .top domain names. I suspect all of their domains are equally retarded.
Do we have any more example .top domain names that I can check to see if they too are also behaving crazy?
The correctly working DNS server IPs seem to be hosted by "Beijing Engineering Resrarch Center Ltd."

This doesn't look good, bros.
The DNS servers selected by the .top top level domain operator's are entirely run by the Chinese.
"Internet Domain Name System Beijing Engineering Resrarch Center Ltd."
Those are the .top DNS servers that work correctly.
