A fast python implementation of breaking down DNS domains into parts.

Project description


Parses DNS domain names into three parts: the prefix, the registered domain and it's registration point.


From the CLI

  Prefix:    www
  Reg Point:
  Prefix:    www
  Reg Point: com

Using the API

import dnssplitter
splitter = dnssplitter.DNSSplitter()

splitter.init_tree() # uses internal data
# or load your own:
# splitter.load_psl_file("/path/to/public_suffix_list.dat")
results = splitter.search_tree("")

# Returns an array of [prefix, registered_domain, public_point]:
# results == ['www', '', '']

Reason for being

There are a number of PSL breakdown libraries. But this one is faster than the others based on some initial tests, and returns more information.
