'thought.org' does _not_ need to resolve.  it is a 'domain-name', not a 'host'.

'r-bonomi.com' doesn't resolve either.  but hosts _under_ that domain do.

In the real world, this means =only= that one cannot use <http://{domain.name}>;
to reach a home page.  one has to use <http://{host.domain.name}>; instead
