Cordova DNS Plugin

A plugin for Apache Cordova that enables applications to manually resolve hostnames into an underlying network address. This is mostly useful for determining whether there is a problem with the device's DNS server configuration.


To install, simply add to your project as you would any other cordova plugin:

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-dns

Once installed, you should be able to use the JavaScript function to resolve host names:

var hostname = '';

function success(address) {
    console.log('Resolved ' + hostname + ' to ' + address);

function failure(error) {
    console.log('Failed to resolve ' + hostname + ': ' + error);

cordova.plugins.dns.resolve(hostname, success, failure);
