I know questions about specific web services are off topic here.
But there are general networking questions about protocols that don’t involve a web service nor they are related to a professional task (off‑topic on Server Fault).
Some examples include :
- As per ɪᴀɴᴀ specifications, an authorization code is necessary for requesting a domain name transfer to a registrar. In which ʀꜰᴄ it’s defined ?
- Is there a network protocol that use amplitude modulated radio signals ?
- What is the difference of purpose between Registry Registrar Protocol (rrp) and Extensible Provisioning Protocol (epp) ?
Would it be ok to ask such questions here ?

Looking at your examples I would have to say that all three of those questions are off topic here.
From the help centre:
Super User is for computer enthusiasts and power users. If you have a
question about …
- computer hardware,
- computer software, or
- personal and home computer networking
Your first and third questions fail to meet the requirements for personal computer networking
Your second example is essentially a shopping recommendation for "go find me some network protocols" and would also be off topic as too broad.
