DNS/DIG lookup questions and GTLD servers question
Posted on 2003-12-05
I have a question about the G-TLD servers. Do they cache dns information?
When I do a dig on for microsoft.com (dig microsoft.com +trace) the final answer is:
microsoft.com. 3600 IN A 22.214.171.124
microsoft.com. 3600 IN A 126.96.36.199
;; Received 63 bytes from 188.8.131.52#53(dns1.cp.msft.net) in 65 ms
If I am reading this correctly it is saying that dns1.cp.msft.net gave the answer of 184.108.40.206 and 222....
What does it mean if I do a dig and it says that (dig example.com +trace) the GTLD gave the answer????
example.com. 172800 IN A XXX.XXX.XXX.225
example.com. 172800 IN NS ns1.example.com.
;; Received 124 bytes from 220.127.116.11#53(A.GTLD-SERVERS.NET) in 33 ms
