Checking DNS:


1. What’s the IP address for a domain?

Note: ping¬†won’t necessarily work if ICMPpackets are refused but this does the job:

dig +short <domain name>

2. query a specific nameserver

e.g. your DNS might be OK with your internal DNS servers but not have propagated to public DNS servers like Google’s

dig@<nameserver> <domain.com>
