    DNSJack

    A simple DNS proxy that lets you intercept domains and route them to whatever IP you decide.

    It's available through npm:

    npm install dnsjack
    

    It's easy to use:

    var jack = require('dnsjack').createServer();
     
    jack.route('www.google.com', '127.0.0.1'); // route all requests to www.google.com to localhost
    jack.listen(); // it listens on the standard DNS port of 53 per default
     
    // now all requests to google.com should be routed localhost
    require('http').createServer(function(req, res) {
        res.writeHead(200);
        res.end('jack says hi!');
    }).listen(80);

    You probably need to run the above example with sudo as we need to listen to port 80 and 53. Now change your local DNS server to 127.0.0.1 and visit http://www.google.com in your browser.

    DNSJack will forward all request that you don't route yourself to Google's DNS server or whatever DNS you provide in .createServer().

    You can also use it to monitor your DNS resolutions which can be super useful for debugging:

    var jack = require('dnsjack').createServer();
     
    jack.on('resolve', function(domain) {
        console.log('Someone is resolving', domain);
    });
    jack.listen();

    Install
