This is fun project for the weekend; a simple DNS relay server that can do wildcard DNS resolution for IP Addresses. Like xip.io, but with a small change. This supports hyphens in addition to dots.

Examples

  192-168-1-1.int.example.com resolves to 192.168.1.1
  192.168.1.1.int.example.com to resolves 192.168.1.1
  foo.10-1-2-3.int.example.com to resolves 10.1.2.3

There are quite a few services which do this like xip.io, I just wanted something that one can use for other domains. It’s fairly simple to use. Just deploy and delegate this as nameserver for the subdomain you are running this for, and it will serve only those requests. It can also relay requests for requests about other domains, so you can use it in your LAN too.
