Google Analytics - two-letter domains cookies problem in IE Zodios 7/22/10 11:58 PM
Hello. Can someone help me solve the problem.

Internet Explorer has a cookie restriction for two-letter domains. Microsoft didn't want people to set cookies to ".co.uk" so instead of blocking some two-letter domains, they seemed to have blocked all of them.

Setting to pageTracker._setDomainName("www.fz.se") might work if you've only got the one domain. I've got a lot of subdomains and according to "Tracking Across a Domain and Its Sub-domains" (http://code.google.com/intl/ru/apis/analytics/docs/tracking/gaTrackingSite.html#domainSubDomains) I use a leading "." when setting the domain name in order to track them all.

How do I solve this for a two letter domain with subdomains?

IE6 + IE7: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0
edit he SpecialDomains key and write the tld in question backwards, like es. for .se or ku. for .uk

IE8 + IE9: Create a business support case at Microsoft and cry (very hard) until they add your domain to their semiannually IE security update schedule (there really is no other way of doing it, Microsoft maintains an internal tld list whereas webkit/firefox both use a publicly maintained list that I can't remember the url of).
You can view current custom domains by opening res://urlmon.dll/ietldlist.xml in IE8 or IE9.
