WebSniffer has launched a new tool at websniffer.com/reverse-dns that allows users to perform reverse DNS lookups on any IP address.
Reverse DNS (rDNS) is the process of using the Domain Name System (DNS) to determine the domain name corresponding to a specific IP address. While DNS typically translates a domain name into an IP address in order for a user's web browser to access a website, rDNS works in the opposite direction by translating an IP address into a domain name.
For instance, if someone wanted to find out the domain name associated with the IP address "220.127.116.11", which belongs to the well-known Google Public DNS, an rDNS lookup would reveal that it is linked to the domain name "dns.google".
There are several potential uses for rDNS lookups, such as troubleshooting connectivity issues, detecting spam or malicious activity, or simply learning about the domains connected to certain IP addresses.
WebSniffer's reverse DNS lookup service can be accessed for free at websniffer.com/reverse-dns.
