$ host -t AAAA www.nytimes.com
$ host www.nytimes.com
www.nytimes.com has address 22.214.171.124
www.nytimes.com has address 126.96.36.199
www.nytimes.com has address 188.8.131.52
www.nytimes.com has address 184.108.40.206
$ host -t AAAA doubleclick.com
$ host doubleclick.com
doubleclick.com has address 220.127.116.11
