What are you trying to ultimately accomplish?   The first three you listed are hosting DNS through "AAPT" who I've never heard of but their website is:

Basically the whois queries return the name servers that handle the nslookups.  I did some additional searching against those server names and tracked them back to AAPT.

The last one in your list, has DNS hosting from a different company.  These nameservers track back to Melbourne IT, LTD. dba Internet Names Worldwide.  Their website is

Does this help?

This is what I get as being the authoritative nameservers for each of those domains:
        primary name server =
        primary name server =
        primary name server =
        primary name server =

I got that using NSLookup from my machine.

The first three appear to be owned by AAPT (telco in Australia - most people in IT will be familar with them), and all four appear to be hosted by MelbourneIT (also very big - they do domain hosting et al all over the world, although most provincial players won't be aware they are actually dealing with MelbourneIT).

these website are hosted under a different webhost, who have asked us to update the DNS records for these websites, so I was trying to find where the dns host records for these websites are located....

It appears that MelbourneIT is the ultimate answer.

If you don't have access to their online system, you'll need to get that first.  You could try calling them, and asking what process to follow, but for the first three at least, looks like you might have to go via AAPT.  Maybe the website owners have a contract with them, and the invoices will have an account number etc on there?

Melbourne IT said, they don't host DNS records for these websites as well :-(

In that case, try these guys instead (for the first three at least):

For the fourth one, you could try emailing (MelbourneIT's corporate domain names people):

and tell them that you are trying to contact about hosting of and can they help you in any way.

MelbourneIT are listed as the registrant (as well as registrar) of
