Be prepared!

Necrohost is a set of tools for testing hosts that misbehave. Here you will find the following

Unresolvable

This domain can be used in cases where you need a domain that will not resolve to any address

link: unresolvable.necrohost.com

Unreachable

This domain points to 6.6.6.6, the intention is that this domain will point to an unreachable IP. This should be good for testing unreachable hosts.

link: unreachable.necrohost.com

Sleep

This domain will not return a response given the number of seconds passed in the URL. The maximum is currently 60 seconds.

    Funding

    Necrohost recently went down because I didn't realize so many people were using it. If you would like to help fund hosting, send me some $$ at gittip
