Site to see the historical DNS records for an address
« on: October 06, 2018, 01:14 PM »
Need to find the historical data for a site in regards to DNS records after they've already changed?  This site was a lifesaver!

Why would you need it?  A service that I was using went down unexpectedly.  I'd even anticipated it, as I asked them "How do you make money" and they never responded.  But I used it anyway, and my data was stuck after their domain expired.  I went there, looked up the domain, and found that their previous IP was still up- it was just that the Domain had expired.  I put the domain name in my hosts file with one of the old IPs and was able to get in and retrieve my data.  After that, I figured I'd post it here in case anyone else had a need for it in the future.
