What is the output of
dig +short linuxforums.org
dig +short @188.8.131.52 linuxforums.org
traceroute -T linuxforums.org
- whois is of no use for connectivity (unless a site's registration
has lapsed of course)
- sometimes more than one site is hosted at an ip address so going to
that address in Firefox will most likely take you where you want to go
- I can only admire your obsession with scripting but there are
regular tools (with flexible options) for resolving addresses
(although I assume that the "none" above must mean that you can feed
your script a different DNS server to be queried)
