DNS for


Is it intentional that the DNS entries for and are the same?
[~] dig -x +short 1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com. [~] dig -x +short


Yes it is. Under 1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com there are all the 4 IPs for the DNS resolver.

dig +short A 1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com

dig +short AAAA 1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com


Ah, thanks for confirming. I guess I was just expecting to see something like 1dot0dot0dot1.cloudflare-dns.com for the ipv4 lookup.
