Why bother when you have free lookup websites? Take a look at this ip address lookup. I don't have a complete database to try the ip lookup on my linux. Where can I get one please ?

Have a look at the man page for the dig command:
From that man page:
Reverse lookups - mapping addresses to names - are simplified by the -x option. addr is an IPv4 address in dotted-decimal notation, or a colon-delimited IPv6 address. When this option is used, there is no need to provide the name, class and type arguments. dig automatically performs a lookup for a name like and sets the query type and class to PTR and IN respectively. By default, IPv6 addresses are looked up using nibble format under the IP6.ARPA domain. To use the older RFC1886 method using the IP6.INT domain specify the -i option. Bit string labels (RFC2874) are now experimental and are not attempted.
Kind regards,
