Get Hostname from IP address

To get the hostname from the IP address.
The simplest way is to use the “host” utility provided by Gnu/Linux. Just run…

poison:~ # host 64.233.187.99
99.187.233.64.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer jc-in-f99.google.com.
poison:~ #


This will query the name server and provide you with the hostname of the IP address.By default it will query the nameserver listed in the /etc/resolv.conf file.
