IP Address and Domain Name
Name: Paul H.
Date: May 2002
There are commands which one can use to resolve a domain
name to an IP address, and vice versa. There is also a command or means
to determine if a domain name is registered, and if so, to whom. Where
can I find a list of such commands?
Paul this is a great question,
To answer your question I will be making the assumption that you are using
Windows NT, 2000 or XP. To find out what domain name is registered to a
given IP or even series of IP's use the command NSLOOKUP followed by the
domain you want to look up. Basically this is a query to your DNS server,
a DNS (Domain Name System) is a central repository or database of the
association of IP's to domain names. Here is the result of a NSLOOKUP on
Addresses: 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11
18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52,
Here is a great site that will give you a list for all the TCP/IP commandsthat Microsoft supports.
