    I have been trying ''host'' and ''dig'' commands in the terminal but when I try ''dig'' I get an answer like this:
    ; <<>> DiG 9.7.0-P1 <<>> bw-in-f103.1e100.net
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; Got answer:

    The Authority and the Additional parts are missing.What do I have to do in order to see those sections.I tried with OpenDNS and GoogleDNS and also with different IP numbers but everytime the answer was the same,those two parts missing.

    See the "AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0" There's nothing to be displayed I guess.
    I get similar results, only something like" dig com. NS" for example gives the additional part, and without the NS or "dig myip.opendns.com" I get an authority response.
    Don't know why, first time I've used dig, sorry :D
    Oh this is strange,when I run dig com. again the authority is missing, other domains like net. or org. only work the first time too...
