What is the difference between "nslookup" and "whois" ?
For both I enter a domain name and get an IP.

Do use both the same sources?

Can I enter in both cases domain names with a 3rd level domain name e.g.


NSlookup is a name server lookup.
Whois lookup is used to get the whois information of the domain name or ip
I found both this tools at .
It has the whois tool and DNS Query tool..Through DNS query tool, you will
the name servers ..
