Questions about Nmap

I am fooling around with Nmap self studying for my CEH and have a few questions.

I am trying to use the name server lookup utility in Nmap to find the ip address of a website. Would it be "nmap -sn www.site.com"?

How would I then determine if port 80 and port 443 are open on this site?

Thanks!
