Querying DNS

Hi there
Is there any way of querying public DNS using wildards ?

whois x*.com

No match for "X*.COM".

Re: Querying DNS

In DNS, the way you would accomplish it would be to request a zone transfer of the parent domain (.com) then you would look for your target (X*) in the return.

I can guarantee you the ".com" servers will not let you do a zone transfer. You can imagine how large that would be.

So the short answer is, "No, you can't do that."
