There was a discussion about using a different domains for the website
(www.pool.ntp.org) and the DNS (pool.ntp.org). If my memory serves me
right, there were a couple reasons given for using a different domain:
- Ease of use. The example given was gmail.com vs www.mail.google.com.
- Consistensy. pool.ntp.org *might* redirect to www.pool.ntp.org, but
an evil admin might redirect it to an advertising page or worse.
and sites on pool.ntp.org can read these cookies.
The discussion is quite long (60 messages), but nonetheless interesting:
I speculate that ntpns.org has been setup so that it's possible to
change the nameservers quickly without having to touch the ntp.org
domain. Ask has direct control over ntpns.org but not ntp.org.
