New Way to Lookup DNS Records for a Website

DNS Lookup Tool

The DNS lookup tool fetches all the DNS records for a domain and organizes namespaces into a priority. Use settings to perform DNS lookup either against Google, Cloudflare, OpenDNS, or the domain's authoritative name server(s). Therefore, if you changed your web hosting or DNS records, those changes should reflect instantly.

To make sure that your domain is working properly, use the DNS lookup tool to ensure that all of the DNS records for your domain are configured properly. The DNS records contain A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, NS, PTR, SRV, SOA, TXT, CAA, DS, DNSKEY, and many more.

For any record, select "Find" or select "All Records" to get all common DNS records for a domain.

Different Types of DNS Records

A record : An address record, also known as an address record, is the most basic type of archive that contains a site's IPv4 address and a domain name or sub-domain. The archive points to an IP address.

AAAA record: The hostname identifies a host on the internet and is translated into 128-bit IPv6 addresses. IPv4 addresses served for many years to identify devices on the internet, but IPv6 addresses were created due to the shortage of IPv4 addresses. The four vowels in the word IPv6 stand for four times bigger in size than IPv4 addresses.

CNAME record: CNAME is an acronym for Canonical Name Record, which creates an alias for one domain name. The aliased domain or subdomain is created with all of the DNS  of the main domain and is commonly utilized to associate subdomains with existing main domains.

MX record: MX record, also known as Mail Exchange records, alerts the recipient of the email address where they should make the connection to the sender. For extensive analysis, use MX Lookup.

NS record: NS records, also known as the Name Server records, offer relevant information about the current name servers that are authoritative to cater to any query in relation to that domain. The NS Lookup Tool is an excellent resource for any person seeking information on Name Servers.

PTR record:  Pointer record, points the IPv4 or IPv6 address to its host computer's hostname. It provides a reverse DNS record, also known as DNS, by pointing the IPv4 or IPv6 address to the host computer.

SRV record: The service record, which indicates which specific services a domain runs along with port numbers, is provided in the DNS. Some protocols, such as Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), need an SRV.

SOA record:  The beginning of Authority records provides vital information about the domain, such as identifying the nameserver of the domain master, the email of the domain administrator, the serial number of the domain name zone, and so on.

TXT record: Text records enable the site administrator to include an arbitrary word in the DNS.

CAA record: The Certification Authority Authorization record, which tracks the regulation of the issuance of digital certificates for the domain name, reflects the official public policy. If there are no CAA orders for your domain, any Certification Authority may issue an SSL certificate, but as this permits only a specified CA, you can limit the certification authority from issuing certificates to your domain.

DS record:  Delegate Signer record and comprises the characters of your public key and its related information like Key Tag, Algorithm, Digest Type, and the cryptographic hash value called Digest.

DNSKEY record:  Public signing keys found in the DNS Key include Zone Signing Key (ZSK) and Key Signing Key (KSK). The DS and DNSKEY provide proof of the validity of DNS records returned by the DNS Server.
