      ===================

      host -- DNS Look-up Utility

      Summary:

      host is a simple utility for performing DNS (Domain Name Service)
      lookups. It is normally used to convert names to IP addresses and
      vice versa.

      Examples:

      $ host google.com -- Show the IP Address of Google.com.

      $ host -v google.com -- Show detailed output.

      $ host -a google.com -- Show more details.

      $ host 127.0.0.1 -- Do reverse lookup and Show the host name.

      $ host -l mydomain.com -- List all hosts available in MyDomain.

      Read: man host

      HTH :)
