    Has anyone seen this.
    I got a message from FreeDNS, saying that google.com is registered as a free DNS and that you can register any subdoamin on google.com.

    It is private and google have the right to take down your subdomain. Has anyone tried this?

    Code:
    http://freedns.afraid.org/subdomain/edit.php?edit_domain_id=117200&subdomain=&web_panel=1

    Sorry that's nonsense.
    I doubt you tested that, did you?

    The only way to give a subdomain on google.com is by registering it on ns1 - ns4 .google.com

    Thats why I'm asking has anyone tried it. The reason I got this is message is that I tried to login to gmail but was redirected to afraid.org, which would indicate that they have some control over where google subdomains go (mail.google.com)

    diet.google.com does not exist, try again

    You fell into a trap, is it possible you registered THEIR nameservers as default nameservers ?
    Yes they have entered this domain into their own nameservers, that means everyone (no one in reality) using them will be able to resolve this.
    Everyone can do that who runs a nameserver but it's useless.

    If you do
    Code:
    nslookup diet.google.com
    you get

    Code:
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name:    diet.google.com
    Address:  69.89.21.61
    which is my hosting account ip, I don't use their DNS.

    I'm not trying to fool anyone, I can't believe that its possible to do it

    I don't dispute that google has ultimate control over this or taht they couldn't shut them down in a minute but the fact is that I created a subdomain on google.com and when I type it into my browser, it is sent to my hosting account. I will setup the domain on the hosting account and see what happens

    I can already tell you what happens.
    Everyone but you and a hand full of selected people will get an error when they enter your subdomain because it does not exist.
    Only good side: google has no way to shut that down :) How do you want to shut something down that's not there ?

    Check your nameserver and use proper ones. Never use crappy nameserver that can't be trusted.

    OK,
    I've redirected
    Code:
    http://diet.google.com
    to a test host with a simple test page with the url written on it.
    Can people visit the site and let me know if they can see it. I'm not using any specific NS to resolve my URLs, I'm connected to a large ISP and they are resolving this address to my hosting account.

    Can you post here if you can see the page or not

    nope, i can't see the page. Someone probably just entered google.com on afraid.org, as you see it says the domain is broken for them.
