Why Dead-Hosts?

We are conscient that PyFunceble may run for days. We would therefore offer you, to have your list. Request for Dead-Hosts testing.

How do Dead-Hosts work?

Dead-Hosts is like a wrapper of PyFunceble. Indeed, we use Travis CI containers in order to test lists with PyFunceble.

Once a list is set up inside our infrastructure, PyFunceble will test the list regularly and the Dead-Hosts infrastructure will produce a clean.list file which represents the list of domains/IP/URL which remains or became ACTIVE.

In addition, if needed, we can set up a list of GitHub username to @ping once a new test is finished.

Do you want your list to be tested at Dead-Hosts ? You can request it !

History of Dead-Hosts

The project started on 3rd March 2017 at funilrys/dead-hosts.

The original idea was to test Funceble against hosts file in order to find bugs inside Funceble but also letting me (@funilrys) have a shorter hosts file.

On 23rd January 2018, I (@funilrys) decided to shut down funilrys/dead-hosts , as it became impossible to test all members of the project without having to wait for weeks. I then decided it was time to move on to another level.

That was the beginning of Dead-Hosts.

Today Dead-Hosts’s is objective to provide project and lists to maintainers or individuals, with the help of PyFunceble, to provide more information about their favourite project/list or domains, IP or URL.
