New Tool for Quick DNS Lookup

Collaborative Post

There are plenty of ways to find DNS records. The most common being command-line methods which require technical skills and experience.

You get all the necessary data with command-line methods, but it’s a bit of a headache; it takes loads of time, and there’s no coherent structure to the data. 

With all the modern developments in the field of cybersecurity, using command-line methods is a bit “old school.”

Today we’ll explore a simplified way of finding DNS records, specifically by using the DNStable tool.

This is a new tool created by Spyse which lets you find DNS records by Domain, IP, and CIDR, giving the latest and most accurate data on DNS records. With Spyse, the broad data you usually get with command-line methods is well-structured and enriched by other Spyse services. It can also be downloaded for further exploration. 

In addition to this, using DNStable gives you access to other handy Spyse services which greatly enrich the collected data. It’s like switching cars from an old Toyota to a shiny new Tesla.
