DNS Tools is a very easy to use application developed to perform multiple lookups.
Although there’s no help section included in the app, DNS Tools shouldn’t get you too much trouble if you’re an experienced user, mostly because it all comes down to just a few clicks.
DNS Tools is more like a mix of simple, yet essential features and a plain and well-organized GUI, so the lookup process doesn’t usually take more than just a few seconds.
For example, the app can perform A, MX, PTR and country lookups, which means that it helps you retrieve information on an IP address of a domain, mail exchange servers for a domain or simply the country a specific domain is based in.
Additionally, the application displays abuse addresses for each checked domain, this time using a dedicated panel right in the main window.
There are no other configuration options and this is clearly good news for those who don’t want to spend too much time using the app.
Of course, DNS Tools works smoothly on all Windows versions and doesn’t ask for administrator privileges when it comes to launching it on Windows 7 machines.
To sum up, DNS Tools does its job and is aimed at more experienced users who don’t need assistance when it comes to a simple A or MX record lookup. The app comes with the essential features and nothing more.
