      Description

      A Url of the form "http://hostname" is not validated, when the hostname is simple, i.e does not have any dots.

      I think this is a valid URL and it should pass validation.

      The bug is in UrlValidator::isValidAuthority(), line 382

      String topLevel = domainSegment[segmentCount - 1];
      if (topLevel.length() < 2 || topLevel.length() > 4)

      { return false; }

      In this case, topLevel = "hostname"
