One Stop Shopping for DNS Stuff

DNS means “Domain Name System” which stores information about host and domain names in a “type of distributed database on networks, such as the Internet.” Information stored includes the physical location (IP address), mail exchange servers accepting e-mail for each domain, and address and routing information for the domain.

DNS as a tool for typical users is fairly limited. What it can do is possibly help you track down potential spammer sites and back track web addresses to track down the owner, also known as WHOIS.

If you are looking for a one stop shop for tracking down referers, comment urls and other domain ownership information, DNS Stuff is the place. From there you can search the WHOIS, traceroute, spam databases, ping, determine geographic locations, and even test email accounts. There is even a DNS Stuff extesnion for Firefox users to provide easy access to DNS Stuff tools.

Here are some more DNS tools and utilities:

    Actually, don’t be fooled by the blatant request for money and “membership”. Most of their offerings are still free. Scroll down.

    Wow, this is good information you have provided here. I have a blog where I keep on receiving spams, I just don’t know how to stop them flooding into my blog. I will definitely check all the links you’ve given. Thank you.

    None of the links in this article will really help you. See WordPress Plugins Battling Evil for the tools you need to use.

    Hi Lorelle

    As an alternative to DNS Stuff I have been working on a site DNS Right. I have created a similar list of tools which is growing all the time. I would love to get your feedback and I am taking requests for tools to be created.

    Please be patient as I am not a web developer or even a programmer. I am a systems admin who used DNS Stuff all the time.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Regards

    Simon

  2. [...] I found a link on her site: One Stop Shopping for DNS Stuff that references a page for all your dns lookup needs. [...]

  3. [...] Should I click the link to find out if they are legit? Hell, no! NEVER click a link to comment spam. Check the domain name with domain name checkers before you visit the actual site if you are concerned about the validity of a comment spam. Don’t make them money by clicking the links in the comment spam. [...]
