Command to Check DNS Propagation from Terminal
What if you didn’t have to use some 3rd party tool like DNSChecker.org to check the DNS propagation?
What if you could do this right into your terminal itself?
Just a simple command and you’re done.
dig compile.blog +noall +answer
Copy-paste the above command into your terminal, replace the existing compile.blog with the website address that you wanna check, and hit enter.
You’ll see the IP address associated with your website as shown below:
compile.blog. 0 IN A 126.96.36.199 compile.blog. 0 IN A 188.8.131.52
And, if the IP address shown here matches with the IP of your web server, your domain DNS propagation is complete.
Yes, you won’t be able to see other details like the location as they show in DNSChecker.org, but this definitely works and very simple to use too.
