    History of DNS changeso of a domain?

    Is there a way to determinate the history of DNS changes of a domain, or at least know what was the previous set of DNS used by a domain?

    After googling a while, I discovered whois.sc
    however it requires a paid account to see historic information of domains.

    Hello albatroz!

    you can get history information on WHOIS and DNS information at the following link.

    domaintools.com/research/whois-history/

    They will show the whois and nameserver information. You have to pay to get it or use the free trial version.

    For those still looking for DNS history, I've been collecting DNS records for all the domains on the major gTLDs (.com, .net, .org and a few others) since mid-2008.

    Although the daily data isn't online (there are over 2 trillion records -- nothing else even comes close to this), monthly data is now available at http://DNStrails.com .

    When available, it covers the A record of each domain (and the www host), NS, MX, TXT records.

    I'm also archiving reverse DNS history (most collected from others) at http://PTRarchive.com .

    Thanks for the link to DNStrails. Note this only allows one lookup per month.

    Sorry about the phrasing, I've tried to improve it. There is currently no restriction on the number of lookups users perform.

    The limitation is that while daily data was collected (e.g. every day of every month for the past 7+ years), only one day per month is online right now (the rest is archived).

    So if you look up a domain, it will show you the DNS for the first day of each month, rather than 28-31 days for each month. Depending on your reason for needing the historical DNS data, this may or may not be a problem.
