"The host tool provides basic information about how DNS
resolves. nslookup is used to query domain servers. It will run in
two modes: interactive and non-interactive. The interactive mode
allows you to query for various hosts and domains while the
non-interactive mode just returns the requested information. dig
stands for Domain Information Groper and gives you a way to
retrieve a lot of useful information."
