Hi,

I had do some check for the domain 1e100.net and found that this is actually a hidden domain from google and there is not details info when the domain will be used and how the domain resolve work for the domain.

For more information, please refer to the URL below:

Beside that, the domain also registerd in multiple top level/root domain registered.

Hi,

We had perform URLs capture when accessing to youtube.com and we can’t found any request to domain 1e100.net. Beside that, we also further check on the DNS query from the PC to the internet regarding to the domain 1e100.net and there is no DNS requries to the domain as well. We don’t thinks the domain 1e100.net is require when accessing to youtube.

Base on my finding also, 1e100.net seem to be the reserve DNS pointer (PTR) for all google and youtube public IP addresses.

For more information, please refer to the test below:

You are right about the domain, but is there a rule to force youtube?

You would need to create custom outbound rules using the following domains:
