psl (Public Suffix List)

NPM

Greenkeeper badge Build Status devDependency Status

psl is a JavaScript domain name parser based on the Public Suffix List.

This implementation is tested against the test data hosted by Mozilla and kindly provided by Comodo.

What is the Public Suffix List?

The Public Suffix List is a cross-vendor initiative to provide an accurate list of domain name suffixes.

The Public Suffix List is an initiative of the Mozilla Project, but is maintained as a community resource. It is available for use in any software, but was originally created to meet the needs of browser manufacturers.

A "public suffix" is one under which Internet users can directly register names. Some examples of public suffixes are ".com", ".co.uk" and "pvt.k12.wy.us". The Public Suffix List is a list of all known public suffixes.

Source: http://publicsuffix.org

Installation

Node.js

npm install --save psl

Browser

Download psl.min.js and include it in a script tag.

<script src="psl.min.js"></script>

This script is browserified and wrapped in a umd wrapper so you should be able to use it standalone or together with a module loader.

API

psl.parse(domain)

Parse domain based on Public Suffix List. Returns an Object with the following properties:

  • tld: Top level domain (this is the public suffix).
  • sld: Second level domain (the first private part of the domain name).
  • domain: The domain name is the sld + tld.
  • subdomain: Optional parts left of the domain.

Example:

var psl = require('psl');
 
// Parse domain without subdomain
var parsed = psl.parse('google.com');
console.log(parsed.tld); // 'com'
console.log(parsed.sld); // 'google'
console.log(parsed.domain); // 'google.com'
console.log(parsed.subdomain); // null
 
// Parse domain with subdomain
var parsed = psl.parse('www.google.com');
console.log(parsed.tld); // 'com'
console.log(parsed.sld); // 'google'
console.log(parsed.domain); // 'google.com'
console.log(parsed.subdomain); // 'www'
 
// Parse domain with nested subdomains
var parsed = psl.parse('a.b.c.d.foo.com');
console.log(parsed.tld); // 'com'
console.log(parsed.sld); // 'foo'
console.log(parsed.domain); // 'foo.com'
console.log(parsed.subdomain); // 'a.b.c.d'

psl.get(domain)

Get domain name, sld + tld. Returns null if not valid.

Example:

var psl = require('psl');
 
// null input.
psl.get(null); // null
 
// Mixed case.
psl.get('COM'); // null
psl.get('example.COM'); // 'example.com'
psl.get('WwW.example.COM'); // 'example.com'
 
// Unlisted TLD.
psl.get('example'); // null
psl.get('example.example'); // 'example.example'
psl.get('b.example.example'); // 'example.example'
psl.get('a.b.example.example'); // 'example.example'
 
// TLD with only 1 rule.
psl.get('biz'); // null
psl.get('domain.biz'); // 'domain.biz'
psl.get('b.domain.biz'); // 'domain.biz'
psl.get('a.b.domain.biz'); // 'domain.biz'
 
// TLD with some 2-level rules.
psl.get('uk.com'); // null);
psl.get('example.uk.com'); // 'example.uk.com');
psl.get('b.example.uk.com'); // 'example.uk.com');
 
// More complex TLD.
psl.get('c.kobe.jp'); // null
psl.get('b.c.kobe.jp'); // 'b.c.kobe.jp'
psl.get('a.b.c.kobe.jp'); // 'b.c.kobe.jp'
psl.get('city.kobe.jp'); // 'city.kobe.jp'
psl.get('www.city.kobe.jp'); // 'city.kobe.jp'
 
// IDN labels.
psl.get('食狮.com.cn'); // '食狮.com.cn'
psl.get('食狮.公司.cn'); // '食狮.公司.cn'
psl.get('www.食狮.公司.cn'); // '食狮.公司.cn'
 
// Same as above, but punycoded.
psl.get('xn--85x722f.com.cn'); // 'xn--85x722f.com.cn'
psl.get('xn--85x722f.xn--55qx5d.cn'); // 'xn--85x722f.xn--55qx5d.cn'
psl.get('www.xn--85x722f.xn--55qx5d.cn'); // 'xn--85x722f.xn--55qx5d.cn'

psl.isValid(domain)

Check whether a domain has a valid Public Suffix. Returns a Boolean indicating whether the domain has a valid Public Suffix.

Example

var psl = require('psl');
 
psl.isValid('google.com'); // true
psl.isValid('www.google.com'); // true
psl.isValid('x.yz'); // false

Testing and Building

Test are written using mocha and can be run in two different environments: node and phantomjs.

# This will run `eslint`, `mocha` and `karma`. 
npm test
 
# Individual test environments 
# Run tests in node only. 
./node_modules/.bin/mocha test
# Run tests in phantomjs only. 
./node_modules/.bin/karma start ./karma.conf.js --single-run
 
# Build data (parse raw list) and create dist files 
npm run build
