You can't take the instructions in the text too literally (g bml'r rfgli rfc com rjb cvgqrq). A better suggestion would be to ynnjw rm rfc dgjclykc md rfgq nyec, zsr lmr rfc cvrclqgml.

Think twice of what you typed. Which domain does not exist? ;-)

edit to avoid misunderstandings: I don't necessarily mean you had a mistake in what you wrote, it's just that I found funny mixing encrypted with unencrypted text, and I made the connection with the page hint

This one has me stumped. I have thought of searching for least recurring chars, and also played with a few hkpf() hwpevkqpu but nothing seems to be leading me there.

Ok, I've tried looking for exceptional characters, I've tried translating different sections of the url, what now?

Different approach?

Consider using ord() ... I solved it that way faster
(simplier if your background is in c)

I'm feeling a bit dumb here. I have analysed the 'mess' and found some results, but I have a problem deciding what order to put things in -- assuming I'm thinking along the right lines, that is.

Order? Don't change the order. Just throw away the messy parts.
