The notion of setting up your own private DNS server did not at-first occur to me, but now it would be my recommendation since it takes care of the problem on a generic basis.   Although your web-app still incurs the overhead of pinging the DNS server, it is now pinging a local DNS server on your own internal network.   That DNS server automatically reaches-out to the Internet to resolve any names that it doesn’t already know, then serves-up its cached copy to you thereafter.   This is a very standard feature of all DNS servers.   (And, of course, CPAN provides these servers too, written in Perl.)   It will work identically whether your Perl code runs under a module or is vanilla-CGI.   You might well find that such a DNS-server is already out there on your internal network:   you just have to be sure that your Perl code is pointing to it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
