Dnsenum is a tool for DNS enumeration, which is the process of locating all DNS servers and DNS entries for an organization. This kind of tools used to gather critical information about the organization such as usernames, computer names, IP addresses etc. We have given a short overview about this tool and now it is time to find details of any target website through this tool.

Name servers

A nameserver usually helps to identify location of a domain name on the internet.

DNS Records
