EOFError: end of file reached issue with Net::HTTP

If the URL is using https instead of http, you need to add the following line:

parsed_url = URI.parse(url)
http = Net::HTTP.new(parsed_url.host, parsed_url.port)
http.use_ssl = true

Note the additional http.use_ssl = true.

And the more appropriate code which would handle both http and https will be similar to the following one.

url = URI.parse(domain)
req = Net::HTTP::Post.new(url.request_uri)
req.set_form_data({'name'=>'Sur Max', 'email'=>'[email protected]'})
http = Net::HTTP.new(url.host, url.port)
http.use_ssl = (url.scheme == "https")
response = http.request(req)
