Mr.DNS Network Tools v1.9

This Mr.DNS release includes support for the AAAA (IPv6) record, the LOC record (for storing geo-location information in DNS)

and all the DNSSEC resource records (DNSKEY, RRSIG, NSEC, DS, NSEC3 and NSEC3PARAM).

This release is also the first release to us our new Net_DNS2 PEAR module. This module is significantly faster than the Net_DNS module, using new PHP5 constructs, exceptions, and includes many more RR’s.

Net_DNS2 is available for download from the Google Code page, and soon from the PEAR site and command line PEAR installer.

Mr.DNS Network Tools v1.7

I’ve released a new version of the Mr.DNS Network Tools website.

This release just has one new feature – “Website Neighbors”; this gives you a comprensive list of all the websites hosted on the same IP address as the IP address or hostname provided.

Hosting hundreds if not thousands of sites, on a single IP address is fairly common practice for shared web hosting providers- there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it, but this gives you a good idea of how many, and what sites are hosted on the same system as your website.

This list is never 100% complete, but it will give you a fairly accurate estimate.
