Quick Start

If you don't like reading long manuals and you are already familiar with the Internet, this is probably the only chapter you need to read to get started.

 

 

Step 1.

Launch the program.

 

Step 2.

Type in or paste an IP address, hostname, or domain name. An example of an IP address query is shown below:

 

 

A hostname query:

 

 

A domain name query:

 

 

Step 3.

Click the Query button or press the Enter key. The program will try to automatically detect whether you entered an IP address, hostname, or domain and make the respective query. You can also explicitly tell the program which query type should be performed:

 

Make an IP address or hostname query by clicking Query =>As IP address / Hostname or press the Enter key while holding down the Shift and Ctrl keys (Shift+Ctrl+Enter).

 

Or

 

Make a domain query by clicking Query => As Domain or press the Enter key while holding down the Ctrl key (Ctrl+Enter).

 

Or

 

Query the input text as both IP address/hostname and domain by clicking As IP / Hostname and Domain or press the Enter key while holding down the Shift and Alt  keys (Shift+Alt+Enter).

 

 

The default query type and respective hotkey combinations can be customized in (Settings => Options => Queries).
