host

DNS lookup
Usage
host [-i] [-a] <dnsquery>
Description
Starts a DNS lookup for the <dnsquery> (hostname) and prints the results in the current window.
The -i switch causes the command to execute in IpV6 mode (and lookup ONLY IpV6 hosts!).
The -a switch causes the command to run in "unspecified" mode and return any available address: IpV4 or Ipv6.
This command also performs reverse lookups (if you pass an IP address as <hostname>).
Switches
--ipv6 | -i
Causes the command to run in IPv6 mode
--any | -i
Causes the command to run in unspecified mode and lookup both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
Syntax Specification
host [-i] [-a] <dnsquery:string>
