Free DNS report tools

Filed under: cool, dns, education, tip, tool — michaelangela @ 6:38 pm

Excellent comparison and info on free DNS reporting tools which come in handy when DNS is doing what it shouldn’t… at least not what you think it should! In the end I used intoDNS, CheckDNS.net, and pingability.

Free DNS Report alternatives

Everyone that runs a web server or even a site needs to run a DNS
check from time to time. For a long time I have been a happy user of a
site DNSstuff.com. But couple of months ago they started charging for their main check called DNSReport.

For few queries a month I’m not willing to subscribe for $80 a year, and I’m certainly not alone.

I have done some research and tried to find alternatives. Here are the
results with ratings, where 10/10 is what DNSReport gave us.



  1. Just thought i’d Mention http://w3dt.net/tools/dnsreport/ also.

    It is a Free alternative much like the original dnsreport.com, the w3dt.net website also has a stack of other tools on their Home Page.

  2. I’ve developed http://www.dnsinspect.com/ a while ago as a free alternative to DNSStuff.com.
