Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not. Nay, but verily man is rebellious That he thinketh himself independent!. Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (Sura Alalaq 96:8)

Dig is a useful command line tool which allows retrieving DNS records for a domain.

Authoritative name servers are servers that provide DNS information about a domain. An Authoritative name server may be a primary or secondary name server. A primary name server contains definitive and reliable information about a domain. A secondary name server is a slave name server which contains replica of dns records on a primary name server

To fetch the list of name server records for a domain we can use the command: dig NS {domain_name}. If we add the +short flag, then a summary of the information is returned. Other types of DNS records may be fetched similarly
