Server issue Domains that aren't 'live' show 'XenForo.com'

If you happen to type in some domain that does not have a site, or if it is down at the time of you posting it the new URL page title feature will set the text to 'XenForo.com' which doesn't seem like it would be the best behavior for it to have, it probably should show the domain you typed instead.

For example, if you use somerandomsitethatdoesntexist.com you will get:

XenForo.com

When (at least in my oppinion) it should be:

http://somerandomsitethatdoesntexist.com or somerandomsitethatdoesntexist.com.

Put this in bug reports because I wasn't sure if this was intentional. If not please move to the suggestions board :)

Hmmm.
output of
Code:
[url=http://somerandomsitethatdoesntexist.com]http://somerandomsitethatdoesntexist.com[/url]
XenForo.com

Even if you set the text as that it still shows up as XenForo.com oO If nothing else, that's almost certainly a bug

This is actually an oddity with the server. I'm not sure why it's resolving invalid domains to our own IP, which is loading our main page. I'll have to look at that.

When the URL and the text are identical, the text isn't considered. This is what will often happen in the RTE so it's expected.
