Description

This ransform determines if an NS record exists for the given Domain . The NS record is the name server record and is returned as a NS Record .This is normally used in the infrastructure footprinting of an organisation. A note of caution - it is not uncommon for organisations to unsource their name servers to their ISP or to the registrar of their domain. Thus - in terms of finding the network (e.g. resolving this to an IP address) of the target this has limited value - human inspection is advised.


Typical uses

Name Servers of a domain can be found starting from a website.



Example

Starting with our website, we can see that our domain points back to Linode NS records. Running the "To Domains [Sharing this NS]" we get a large collection of domains using Linode as a host.
