Looking up sites hosted on nameserver


Hi,

I once knew how to do this but I seem to have misplaced the information. I need to look up which domain names are all pointing towards nameserver "X".

If you do not want to make the information public you can also PM it to me if you like.

The reason I need to do such a lookup is that I'm going to take a server offline that was my very first server and has been in operation for almost 3 years. During the first 1.5 years running as the primary DNS for all servers as well as hosting sites.

Before February 12th I'm going to take this (now old) server out of service but I know several domains on the other servers still use the DNS of this server. I don't feel much inclined to look up a thousend sites in the whois database to see if they still use this server for DNS but I also wouldn't feel too happy about a couple of dozen sites going offline when I shut down this server

Your help is much appreciated.

Many years ago, you could ask network solutions to send you a report on these.

Don't think they do that anymore.

At one time, you could also do an xfr of a few of the root server's zone files. Can't do that anymore.

I don't think there is a way of doing that, unless you knew all of the domains were in a certain TLD, and you could get the zone files for that TLD.

I don't see it. Can you explain where that feature is?

After you enter a name server to check.. It will come up with a number of websites hosted on the server. Click on that number login etc to give you all the information.

Kind regards
Phillip

I don't see a place to enter a nameserver check. And my nameservers don't host web sites. Still very confused. Do you have to be a registered user or something?

Whois.sc can show only domains in .com/.net/.org/.biz.info/.us zones hosted on specific IP. And also their data have very long update speed.

Some another solution for name-servers you can see here:
http://reports.internic.net/cgi-bin/...ype=nameserver

You can check this way what shared and anonymous name servers are hosted on top real name-server ip.
