Game Content Cache Hostnames

Introduction

This is a list of all hostnames that are required to be redirected for running a game content cache. This list will change frequently so this is designed to be a definitive list.

Usage

You can use this list one of two ways:

  • Overriding DNS for these hostnames to point to the IP of your cache server.
  • Use them in Squid with WCCP to redirect content to the right cache server.

There is a cache_domains.json file to define CDNs and additional metadata with the following structure

  • cache_domains: Array of cache_domain object
    • name: shortname for the cache domain. Should match ^[0-9A-Za-z]$
    • description: a longer description to aid others in identifying what this domain does (not all users of this repo will want to enable all caches)
    • notes: implementation specific notes which may be useful for other users
    • domain_files: array of files within the repo associated to the cdn. Most CDNs only need one file
    • Example domain entry for steam
{
    "cache_domains": [
        {
            "name": "steam",
            "description": "CDN for steam platform",
            "domain_files": ["steam.txt"]
        }
    ]
}

Host file format

There is a separate file for each cacheable service. Some notes on formatting:

  • Every line should be a separate hostname for that service.
  • Only one entry is permitted per line.
  • Wildcards are permitted as per below
  • Lines starting with a # will be treated as a comment.
  • Files must end with an empty newline.
  • File names must match the regular expression ^[0-9A-Za-z].txt

Wildcards

The wildcard format shall be defined as per the below

  • Wildcards should be represented with an asterisk.
  • If a wildcard is used, it should be the first character on the line.
  • Wildcards are not treated as matching null, e.g. *.example.com will match a.example.com but will not match example.com
  • Only simple domain wildcards will be accepted e.g. *.example.com not *ww.example.com
Notes for Squid users

If you are using these files within a squid dst_domain acl you will need to reformat the wildcard entries to be compliant with the squid acl format. The following regex should suffice s/*\./\./ however latest versions of squid are very particular about duplicate domains. The scripts/create-squid.sh should help you out here!

Updates

Please fork this repository and submit pull requests if you have any extra hostnames or services to add. We want this list to be definitive and collaborative!

New CDNs

If the CDN you are adding does not already exist please remember to add an entry within cache_domains.json as well as a new .txt file

Uncacheable CDNs

Certain CDNs are not suitable for inclusion on this list because the content is entirely delivered over HTTPS and thus cannot be cached.

For a list of currently identified uncacheable CDNs please see these issues: https://github.com/uklans/cache-domains/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+label%3Ahttps-cantfix
