is-reachable Build Status

Check if servers are reachable

Works in Node.js and the browser (with a bundler).

The Node.js version will do a TCP handshake with the target's port. It attempts to detect cases where a router redirects the request to itself.

The browser version is limited by the fact that browsers cannot connect to arbitrary ports. It only supports HTTP and HTTPS and the check relies on the /favicon.ico path being present.

Install

$ npm install is-reachable

Usage

const isReachable = require('is-reachable');
 
(async () => {
    console.log(await isReachable('sindresorhus.com'));
    //=> true
 
    console.log(await isReachable('google.com:443'));
    //=> true
})();
