A DNS name.

Parameter

Comments

icann_only

boolean

This controls whether only entries from the ICANN section of the Public Suffix List are used, or also entries from the Private section. For example, .co.uk is in the ICANN section, but github.io is in the Private section.

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

keep_leading_period

boolean

This controls whether the leading period of a public suffix is preserved or not.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

keep_unknown_suffix

boolean

This treats unknown TLDs as valid public suffixes. So for example the public suffix of example.tlddoesnotexist is .tlddoesnotexist if this is true. If set to false, it will return an empty string in this case.

This option corresponds to whether the global wildcard rule * in the Public Suffix List is used or not.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

normalize_result

boolean

This controls whether the result is reconstructed from the normalized name used during lookup. During normalization, ulabels are converted to alabels, and every label is converted to lowercase. For example, the ulabel ëçãmplê is converted to xn--mpl-llatwb (puny-code), and Example.COM is converted to example.com.

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

Examples

- name: Extract the public suffix from a DNS name

Return Value

Key

Hint

Configuration entries for each entry type have a low to high priority order. For example, a variable that is lower in the list will override a variable that is higher up.
