I can verify that the domain name is at least registered to Neople Inc, since its linked up with their Nameservers, and registered to their office address.

So begins the greatest wildfire on the forums.

 

Take this with a grain of salt, folks. There is no press coverage on this matter, and the first notice of it was from 4Chan, and Neople\Nexon doesn't and has never released "open alpha", much like other non-indie game developers, and that date is way too close to current with no advertising at all.

 

As a reminder, Auxilium is not responsible for the contents of external websites.

The thing is, the domain name is registered to Neople, and the nameservers ARE Nexon Korea's. So its very hard not to believe this.

 

http://whois.domaint....com/neople.com

 

For comparison, here is Nexon.com's whois report:

 

http://whois.domaintools.com/nexon.com

 

Same nameservers and everything.

 

Also for the /v/ comment, I found out about this way before it was posted on there. I have PMs sent to a few people on here as well, mostly asking where I should have posted a thread about this.

WHOIS spoofing is a thing. Why is http://neople.com a dead domain? Why does the site link to the fan wiki that's been abandoned and horrifically outdated? Why hasn't Google even indexed this domain yet?

 

As well, Neople is a subsidiary of Nexon Inc. If this was a thing, why isn't nexon.net making a fuss of this?

I guess we will see on the 15th.

 

Also, if you click support the email is "dfo_support@neople.co.kr" and the plugin installer required looks very legitimate.

The plugin installer looks rather similar to kDNF's. It doesn't appear to have installed anything, though.

 

To clarify, I'm not here to stomp my foot down and say "NO YOU'RE WRONG". I want to settle everyone the fuck down if this turns out to be fake.

Also I ended up shooting an email to the dfo_support@neople.co.kr address, and its a live address. No bounce back or anything. Also spoofing a whois is incredibly hard to do, if not outright impossible.

 

Also the plugin installer is digitally signed by Neople. I should clairify to get it digitally signed, the company that signs it has to pay $549. And the installer was signed in 2012, and expires on 12/27 of this year, so its roughly a two year gap, like most digital signatures last. I don't see someone paying $549 just to troll people.

I have nothing to say against that unless accounts that don't have a valid username on the domain are redirected to the admin \ system account, or if it's simply blackholed and refused to give you a bounce back ( which is very bad practice, but easily done ).

 

That said, this could be equally an incredibly elaborate ruse, or legit. I'm not sure what to say with what we've been given.

My friend left a comment on Neople's official blog with a link to the website. There is no mention of DFO's return on their blog and the last time anything was posted about North America was in 2009. We will get to the bottom of this sooner or later.

 

I'm willing to bet it's a scam/hoax. It's not like similar scams haven't been done before, but we shall see.

So, dnf.neople.com is redirecting to http://dnfweb01.cloudapp.net/ , the real site.

Cloudapp is a Microsoft Azure hosted service. Which costs money. Also that pingtest proves nothing, as I time out when pinging cyphers.nexon.com as well. Or if you want to try something a bit more relevant:

 

df.nexon.com also times out.

 

 

Also Nexon as a whole just seemed to recently switch over to Microsoft Azure.

Oh good, we're dealing with someone who actually knows something.

 

So, since we're still running on baseless speculation, what's the price per hour on Asure time to run an HTML file and a 2MB plugin that doesn't actually install what's advertised?

The timing out doesn't matter.

 

Notice how if we ping http://auxgaming.org, we get a response back from http://auxgaming.org.

Now then, if we ping http://dnf.neople.com, it resolves to 23.99.22.111, which is a Microsoft IP as you mentioned. However, riddle me this, if I ping to http://neople.com, why is it that it resolves to a different IP?

Price varies depending on the provider, server specs, and other various things. I use Amazon AWS for my stuff however, since I like their support better.

 

Also Soulrez to answer your question, you can tie specific subdomains to different IPs/Servers (or in this case, a provider). It's pretty much settting an "A Record".

Gmail and stuff do it, so its not really that new!

 

e: Soulrez if you want to continue discussing this, feel free to add me on Skype/Steam (I added you on Steam), as I put my information in my profile. Auxgaming seems to be having a hiccup on my end.

So, we continue to be left with no official sources confirming this, yet nothing to really say it's fake either.

 

Guess we're gonna be waiting. All aboard the hype train?

But yeah, sorry about that little derail. Its just that the domain wasn't hacked, mostly because of the fact that the nameservers for Neople.com point back to Nexon Korea's own nameservers. It would be pointless to hack the domain and not change the nameservers or system email (which is system@neople.co.kr)

I understand. You have to realize there's 77 other people at this moment are reading this topic (which is causing our tiny server some trouble) and I can assure you there's a good chance that 74 of them don't know what a name record is, so I appreciate the conversation.

 

e: 116... I hardly knew ye, aux server.

Am I the only one having trouble loading the website now? or is it because everyone and their grandmothers are pinging it?
