Domain list community

This project manages a list of domains, to be used as geosites for routing purpose in Project V.


Due to a lack of members capable of code review, this repository has been moved to v2fly/domain-list-community. This also means that more contributors can have manager access to the new repository after a few successful PRs, which will make the project healthier and more active for good.

From now on, this repo will only be used to release dlc.dat. Other matters (issues and pull requests) will be handled at the new repository.

Purpose of this project

This project is not opinionated. In other words, it does NOT endorse, claim or imply that a domain should be blocked or proxied. It can be used to generate routing rules on demand.

Usage example

Each file in the data directory can be used as a rule in this format: geosite:filename.

"routing": {
  "domainStrategy": "IPIfNonMatch",
  "rules": [
      "type": "field",
      "outboundTag": "Reject",
      "domain": [
      "type": "field",
      "outboundTag": "Direct",
      "domain": [
      "type": "field",
      "outboundTag": "Proxy-1",
      "domain": [
      "type": "field",
      "outboundTag": "Proxy-2",
      "domain": [
      "type": "field",
      "outboundTag": "Proxy-3",
      "domain": [

Generate dlc.dat manually

  • Install golang and git
  • Download and install project code: go get -u -v --insecure
  • Generate dlc.dat (without datapath option means to use data directory of this repository in $GOPATH):
    • $(go env GOPATH)/bin/domain-list-community
    • $(go env GOPATH)/bin/domain-list-community --datapath=/path/to/your/custom/data/directory

Structure of data

All data are under data directory. Each file in the directory represents a sub-list of domains, named by the file name. File content is in the following format.

# comments
include:another-file @attr1 @attr2


  • Comment begins with #. It may begin anywhere in the file. The content in the line after # is treated as comment and ignored in production.
  • Inclusion begins with include:, followed by the file name of an existing file in the same directory.
  • Subdomain begins with domain:, followed by a valid domain name. The prefix domain: may be omitted.
  • Keyword begins with keyword:, followed by a string.
  • Regular expression begins with regex:, followed by a valid regular expression (per Golang's standard).
  • Full domain begins with full:, followed by a complete and valid domain name.
  • Domains (including domain, keyword, regex and full) may have one or more attributes. Each attribute begins with @ and followed by the name of the attribute.

How it works

The entire data directory will be built into an external geosite file for Project V. Each file in the directory represents a section in the generated file.

To generate a section:

  1. Remove all the comments in the file.
  2. Replace include: lines with the actual content of the file.
  3. Omit all empty lines.
  4. Generate each domain: line into a sub-domain routing rule.
  5. Generate each keyword: line into a plain domain routing rule.
  6. Generate each regex: line into a regex domain routing rule.
  7. Generate each full: line into a full domain routing rule.

How to organize domains

File name

Theoretically any string can be used as the name, as long as it is a valid file name. In practice, we prefer names for determinic group of domains, such as the owner (usually a company name) of the domains, e.g., "google", "netflix". Names with unclear scope are generally unrecommended, such as "evil", or "local".


Attribute is useful for sub-group of domains, especially for filtering purpose. For example, the list of google domains may contains its main domains, as well as domains that serve ads. The ads domains may be marked by attribute @ads, and can be used as geosite:google@ads in V2Ray routing.
