This OkHttp application interceptor will replace the destination hostname in the request URL.
import okhttp3.HttpUrl;
import okhttp3.Interceptor;
import okhttp3.OkHttpClient;
import okhttp3.Request;
/** An interceptor that allows runtime changes to the URL hostname. */
public final class HostSelectionInterceptor implements Interceptor {
private volatile String host;
public void setHost(String host) { = host;
@Override public okhttp3.Response intercept(Chain chain) throws IOException {
Request request = chain.request();
String host =;
if (host != null) {
HttpUrl newUrl = request.url().newBuilder()
request = request.newBuilder()
return chain.proceed(request);
public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
HostSelectionInterceptor interceptor = new HostSelectionInterceptor();
OkHttpClient okHttpClient = new OkHttpClient.Builder()
Request request = new Request.Builder()
okhttp3.Call call1 = okHttpClient.newCall(request);
okhttp3.Response response1 = call1.execute();
System.out.println("RESPONSE FROM: " + response1.request().url());
okhttp3.Call call2 = okHttpClient.newCall(request);
okhttp3.Response response2 = call2.execute();
System.out.println("RESPONSE FROM: " + response2.request().url());

@JessYanCoding Could you elaborate on why this solution won't work? The whole objective is to intercept the request and change the host alone to whatever we want. So how is this affecting @get(full path) ?

@thsaravana You try, @get(full path) will be replaced with intercepted host

I request two api with different baseUrl at the same time, one of the request's baseUrl is wrong.

                .flatMap { filmsData -> Observable.fromIterable(filmsData.films) }
                        { film ->
                            val filmEntity = FilmEntity(text = film.title, comment = film.originalTitle, date = Date())

                            Log.e("TAG", "put success " + filmEntity.text)
                        { e ->
                            Log.e("TAG", e.message)

                .subscribe({ girl ->
                    Log.e("TAG", "size " + girl.results.size)

The two baseurl are: and
And occur this:
D/OkHttp: <-- 404 Not Found (308ms)
This is wrong because the base url is but not
I think it course by concurrency with the Volatile , how solve it?

@iBotasky Because the network request is asynchronous, try
