> This improvement introduces a new URL filter plugin "urlfilter-fast" (naming 
> debatable) which is in use at Common Crawl [since 
> 2013|https://github.com/commoncrawl/nutch/commit/968e0d8f292bed46e4e3eb276cb475f4403ea9bd]
>  to apply a long list of filters. 
> # an exact (suffix) match against the host name is done to retrieve 
> host/domain-specific regex rules
> # applies a regular expression against the path (and query) component of the 
> What makes it faster than urlfilter-regex for common cases:
> - regexes are selected by host name or it's domain suffix, so there are 
> usually fewer rules to be checked. That's similar to NUTCH-1838 but any 
> domain suffix can be matched including {{subdomain.domain.com}}, {{com}} or 
> {{.}} for global rules. The selection by host name suffix is considerably 
> fast.
> - regexes are applied only to the path component (optionally including the 
> query) and not the entire URL.
>   Matching against a shorter string can make a huge difference for more 
> complex regular expressions.
> - the rule to deny everything from a host or domain gets special treatment to 
> be fast
> More details about the rule format are found in the plugin's 
> [README|https://github.com/commoncrawl/nutch/blob/cc-fast-url-filter/src/plugin/urlfilter-fast/README.md].
