Look up DNS records
How can I look up DNS records for a domain? Like I have the domain and I want to see what DNS records exist and if they are correct.

You could use nslookup or dig:


dig ANY
will look for all records,


dig A

will look for A records,


dig MX
will look for MX records, etc.

Hm, something weird is going on here. Dig and nslookup don't work, and I can't ping any domain at all, but when I ping an IP address instead it works... :confused:
