DNS Lookup

It often happens, when you find a site but want to know more about it. In most of the cases, you want to locate the person who owns the website or you may be interested in other information that a DNS lookup may help you to find. A DNS lookup is a simple way for you to use the information you know, which typically will be URL of a site, to find out more information about it. The primary plate form to perform a DNS search is a Whois registry. Registry will tell you a couple of things about the DNS lookup you are inquiring. First information you will find on the top, will be date of domain registration, and its expiry date. Secondly you will find the name of owner, may be his/her contact number or email address as well, if that person is not using privacy. Next you will find the web hosting company where site is hosted and some other important information about that site.

In many cases, you can find out an address of owner and phone number from a DNS lookup, which many people think is violation of privacy policy and leaves one open to problems. In order to resolve this issue, most of the companies and some individuals as well love to go purchase domain registration privacy. Perhaps you already know about IP address of the server, however. You are willing to associate the name of server with that address. You want to run a reverse DNS lookup in order to find the information you are looking for. The DNS reverse lookup will let you know that from where certain hits are coming from and can provide you information on sites that may want to remain under close cover. Running these lookups is free and can be done online almost any time.

You may face some problems while trying to run a DNS lookup or finding information about a website. You can do a DNS error Google search. These searches are really helpful, especially if you will be able to input the exact error you received. Many forums about DNS will have folders for errors in order to facilitate their visitors with proper information about these errors. Instead of figure it out about what went wrong by yourself, you can get some level of expertise from people who have a clearer picture of what went wrong in your search. Try to verify any information you find so that you can be sure that you have trusted information to use. Sometimes others may post what they think an error means, but you find out the hard way that they were incorrect.
