I know about that tool, but I want to import a lists of websites, domain names and export it to a txt file with the ip address.
I don't mind if you can help me with both bash and python.

Thank you so much.

Here is a good example:
import socket
hostname = 'maps.google.com'
addr = socket.gethostbyname(hostname)
print 'The address of ', hostname, 'is', addr 

Open in new window

BASH is probably easiest to get the information, and then you can wrap a python loop around it rather easily, and use Python to write it to a file.

So, we need to be able to execute a python script that will run this bash command to get the IPs.

The first thing we're going to use is a group of tools piped together:

dig
grep
awk

Dig gets the records.
Grep filters the results to give us only lines with IPs
awk returns only the column that contains IPs:

Here's your command:
dig google.com | grep -P '([0-9]{1,}\.){3}' | awk '{print $5}'

Open in new window


Now, the first thing you'l notice here is that we are getting a list of A records for the domain. What do you want to do with the rollovers?

@becraig: does that get all hostname IPs?

I think with becraig code, we have to put in the host name one by one. But if I put a variable there, replace it with the value from the imported text file, we can have the list of ip addresses. Is that correct Michael?

Sorry... been taken away by personal matters.

His chide dies not require you enter Simon's one at a time. Like what I have you, it requires you build a loop with values (list of domain names) out pull then from other source like a database.

What level of programming expertise do you have? Are you comfortable building loops?

Hi totoroha you can simply loop this through the hostnames from an input.
