Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It associates various information with domain names assigned to each of the participating entities. Most importantly, it translates domain names meaningful to humans into the numerical identifiers associated with networking equipment for the purpose of locating and addressing these devices worldwide. The goal of domain names is to provide a mechanism for naming resources in such a way that the names are usable in different hosts, networks, protocol families, internets, and administrative organizations. Searching for information on specific domains names through public services, may result in loss of domain name you desire for your new business. This application can increase your safety in the search for information about a particular domain name. You avoid the risk results for a particular domain, to be stored in a database of public services that provide online information about domain names. A Resource Record (RR) is the basic data element in the domain name system. Each record has a type (A, MX, NS, SOA, TXT etc.), An expiration time limit, a class, and some type-specific data. Resource records of the same type define a resource record set (RRset). DNS resource records (RRs) describe the characteristics of a zone (or domain) and have a binary or wire-format, which is used in queries and responses, and a text format used in zone files. Through this application you can perform searches related to private domain names, and get information like information about A, MX, NS, SOA, TXT, TTL records, through the process of standard DNS Lookup. TTL is a 4-octet (32-bit) unsigned integer that specifies, for data TYPEs, the number of seconds that the resource record may be cached before the source of the information should again be consulted. Zero is interpreted to mean that the RR can only be used for the transaction in progress. A 32 bit Internet address. Hosts that have multiple Internet addresses will have multiple A records. A RRs translate a name to an IPv4 address. MX Mail Exchanger. A preference value and the host name for a mail server/exchanger that will service this zone. NS Name Server. Defines the authoritative name server(s) for the domain (defined by the SOA record) or the subdomain. SOA Start of Authority. Defines the zone name, an e-mail contact and various time and refresh values applicable to the zone. TXT Text information associated with a name. Reverse DNS lookup or reverse DNS resolution (rDNS) is the determination of a domain name that is associated with a given IP address using the Domain Name System (DNS) of the Internet. Computer networks use the Domain Name System to determine the IP address associated with a domain name. This process is also known as forward DNS resolution. Reverse DNS lookup is the inverse process, the resolution of an IP address to its designated domain name. With this application you can make, Reverse DNS Lookup, also you can find the Ip address of your computer. You can save all search results in TXT format.
