Censys expands queries to provide additional functionality. For example, the query a:zmap.io
executes a DNS lookup and expands to ip:22.214.171.124.
Your query was changed from:
parsed.names: (dns_names or *.hostgator.in)
parsed.names: (dns_names OR *.hostgator.in)
If this isn't what you intended, you can run your raw query without expansion.
