NsLookup (also known as NsVerify) is a utility that allows you to query DNS records and determine whether they are correctly configured on servers. This tool is used by IT professionals to troubleshoot connectivity issues, perform network testing and gather data for security analysis.

You can also track websites and view their IP addresses using a free IP address lookup tool. However, tracing someone’s IP address is only possible if they are currently in an active chat or call with you.
