Over 10 years ago, I started working on a “DNS tools” site. Recently in my free time, I’ve started working on a second version of it, and I’d like to get some feedback on the new version so far, and whether anything is broken.
I’ve totally rewritten most of the site, and the main new feature is that you can ping and traceroute from several different locations in the world. There’s a few other sites that have features like this, but a lot of them have a pretty poor UI (eg. they just show raw
traceroute output) so I’m trying to make a better one.
- Ping and traceroute from several locations worldwide (currently six locations but I’ll be adding 4-5 more some time soon)
- DNS lookups
- DNS traversal: Shows every DNS server that may be used for a DNS lookup, and what the servers return.
- Full IPv6 support for everything
The DNS lookups and traversals are still using the legacy codebase so they don’t support selecting a location yet, but I’ll add that at some point in the future.
I’ll open-source the code once I’m happy with its state - There’s still a bunch of things I need to clean up.
