The “magic” behind TIAI

I was requested to explain how the redirections of TIAI is made.. I will try to explain this in a simple language, it is quite simple actually

First of all, I have never followed this TIAI theory nor do I believe in it. But I do know that the web address www.thisisalsoit.com sends you to some other website, that changes all the time.

To redirect a domain ( the www address) you first of all need to own it. The domain of TIAI is registered through a proxy server, which makes any owner or contact details private. In other words it is not possible to find out who is behind http://www.thisisalsoit.com.

When you own a domain, you have bought it through a ISP; an Internet Service Provider. This ISP will host domains and web hotels, which is a fancy word for the server space, your homepage files needs on a web server.

Some settings is required on both the domain and the web server in order to make everything work. A DNS (domain name server) will register the ip number of the server, where your domain is located, and whenever someone writes the www-address in the browser, the DNS will direct it to the right web server. The web server then redirects you down to the right webpage.
This whole thing takes split seconds, from you enter the www-address in your browser and till you see the webpage in your browser.

But TIAI is a little different.
First of all it is not connected to a regular web page, it just sends you elsewhere. So the owner of this domain, might very just own the domain and not a web page.
TIAI does not redirect. It forwards you.
And it is the most simple way to send someone to another webpage, in basic it just sends you elsewhere when entering http://www.thisisalsoit.com in the browser:

So how do they do it?

That is actually very easy.. At the ISP’s webpage (the one that hosts your domain), you often have a user control panel for various settings to your domain or webpage. This means that you have full control over any aspect of your webpage and domain.

Under here, you see a of example of how simple a web forward setting is at your ISP’s user control panel:

When hitting the ok button, the forward starts working. The DNS servers can normally use up to 4 hours to update, but usually it works long before.

So to get TIAI to work like it does, all it requires is the owner to paste a new link in the forward form once a day or how often he/she wants it to  change.

A quick lookup at thisisalsoit.com reveals that the records have been changed 189 times. Which means 189 forwards.

I guess the most complicated aspect of TIAI must be to find new places to keep forwarding to.

That is the “magic” behind TIAI..;)

    I don’t think this is relevant…
    I mean, it’s the content what matters šŸ™‚

    Thanks so much Zilda. This is totally relevant. It means that someone or some people are directing people to the content. I wonder who????

    • May 14, 2010 at 14:43

      You are welcome! We will never know who is behind this domain, unless the one chooses to come forward. But baiscally it is someone who thinks it is interesting making a lot of forwards.

      It’s no secret that TS is the one redirecting people. How Ignorant of “Zilda” to think there aren’t web-savvy people on the forums, that we all think it’s “magic”, that we’re all unthinking little toddlers. How condescending.

    thanks for that information i am not sure i follow it totally so why are they doing this? to present information in a certain way? it feels very controlling?
    I dont understand why they do this? Is it because they lack content themselves?
    what do you think?

    • June 30, 2010 at 14:54

      In my opinion they do it to trick people. Many dont know how easy it is and when they see a website with this name, changing into all the other sites it redirected to it seems like magic.
      Normally you use redirects to fill empty web domains with something, like when you have a company that has multiple domains, but only one website. In this case you only have to maintain one website in all. You dont need to phsyically upload webfiles on each domain.

    I am also unsure why that site started in April 2009 (MJDHI)?

    They feature mind control topics all the time, i have the feeling that they are the ones that are seeking to mind control people (this is my personal opinion and not this sites opinion), this makes me feel very uneasy, especially as so many vulnerable people follow the hoax.

      I agree with you even though that is my personal view too.

    have you noted which particular pages people are re-directed to?

    • June 30, 2010 at 15:16

      I haven’t been following them, but I know a lot of religous pages have been used, and lately it seems like TIAI redirects to certain topics in MJDHI

    who said there was “magic”?
    yes, TIAI is redirected thru domain control panel? who what? i don’t get it. We all knew that! The question remains – who did that? that’s all
