|Have you ever needed to do an IP trace on a domain name? If not, then it means that you are working on a domain name for your website and you need to find out what exactly is the domain name. An IP trace is something that you will have to do if you are going through the process of who owning the domain name. The reason why we are doing this talk is so we can tell you how to do an IP trace.|
First you have to understand the process involved. Let's say that you were in the market to buy a domain name. To do this you would go to a domain name registrar, like ICANN or whoever. Next you would enter the address of the domain name that you want to purchase into the box on the front page. Then it would ask you if you wanted to look up the domain name.
This basically tells you if there is information on the domain name at all. At this point you have three choices. You can choose to get the information by searching for it manually. This would involve typing in the domain name at the search box and scrolling down to see if anything shows up. It is possible that you will find something, but there is a chance that it may be outdated and worthless.
Also, it is possible that you will find no information whatsoever. This would be the case if you just typed in the domain and did not specify a time frame or region. This is because the data base for the domain only stores information from the most recent date. If you enter a date that is more than a few years old it will not give you anything.
So, what is the best way to go about an IP dns trace? If you cannot find anything on the domain name then you would need to use a program called a reverse lookup directory. A reverse directory is a database which contains information on every IP address in the world. These directories have been compiled by private companies and are the best way to find the information you are looking for.
Once you have entered the address into the search box of the directory you will be given the name of the domain owner. You will then be able to see his or her age, location, ISP, email address and so much more. Another good thing about using a directory is that you are able to view not only the name of the person who owns the IP address, but also the address and so much more information. Even more useful is the fact that you are able to view the country where the IP address came from. Most people don't even know this, but every country has an internal name server, which is used to get information back about its residents.
For example, the United States has an internal name server which is used to access information about people and their addresses. If you are trying to carry out a reverse lookup on a domain name, you can do it for free. The government's website does provide information about the owner of the address, the time they were registered and more. If you want to view the full report, which includes information such as criminal records, death records and a host of other data, you may need to pay a small fee.
You may wonder what the big deal is about paying a private company to do this kind of search for you, but in reality, it makes a lot of sense. Even the government stores data about individuals with their private details, which is why you need to make sure you do a name search yourself. There's nothing wrong with that and it's definitely worth the money.
