    Hi,
    Cool snippet for creation of remote site setting.
    Do you know, however, how to retrieve existing site settings (all or by name)?

      You may use financial force MetadataService API its a wrapper over salesforce meta data api. Checkout this link https://github.com/financialforcedev/apex-mdapi/blob/master/apex-mdapi/src/classes/MetadataService.cls

    No need to have this code, you can package it directly.
    Actual thing I was looking for was – How to add salesforce URL https://ap1.salesforce.com itself as remote site settings through code
