I was trying to run a manual cron job and forgot to add .php to the url but when I entered:
example.com/cron

The url redirects me to sedoparking.com/domparking.php?id=415788&u=http://www.example.com/system-bin/php5exe/cron

what gives? Hosting is via 1and1 and their 'support' is always lacking.

Every other 'bad' url that I have tried is correctly handled by Drupal. Why is this one url appear hijacked? And how do I know if others are too?

It seems that your hosting company has DNS problems of some sort.

Think Smart, Be Free, Choose Open Source.

Yeah that's what I am thinking too. Of course trying to get 1and1 to solve that is near impossible. I imagine I could solve it with a redirect in the htaccess file but that doesn't help me know how many other pages/urls are doing the same thing.

why is this one 404 url redirecting to somewhere else? Its doing this on every Drupal powered site on 1and1.

updated - 1and1 finally came back with a more realistic answer. Its a direct copy paste (their lang skills are a little short):

This two URLs namely: example.com/call and example.com/cro is working fine since this two directories namely call and cro is not existing on your 1and1 webspace in which according to your .htaccess configuration specifically on your mod_rewrite, they will just be redirected on your example.com homepage. This URL now example.com/cron is not redirected on a different server page but instead it's being redirected on your 1and1 error 404 holding page. It's because your /cron folder is being adapted on your cron.php file inside your /drupal-6.12 directory which now contradicts on your .htaccess configuration specifically on your mod_rewrite part. As you can see there, if you will rename your cron.php let say to xcron.php, your example.com/cron will now display fine without any problem. So what you gonna do now, is to check your mod_rewrite directives inside your .htaccess file which is for your cron directory.

Reading that gave me an headache...

Seriously. I've heard nothing but bad reports about them, as well as having a particularly bad experience myself: they double-charged me one month, then terminated my account and switched off my server without notice when I had the audacity to complain.
