Tools to scan for sub domain


Is there a tool to scan for sub domain?
For example host www.abc.com has several sub domains like xyz.abc.com, efg.abc.com and so on, but I only know abc.com so is there any tool that is able to tell me there are sub domain for this abc.com and list them out?

not that I know of.

If the nameserver allows zone transfers unconditionally then you can find sub domains.

The worst part is the subdomain is in totally different IP.

If you know the IP
$ dig -x 1.2.3.4

If you know the root domain try
$ dig the.domain axfr

Note that they won't necessarily have their reverse DNS setup correctly, so the first case might not work. Also, for security reasons many sites these days do not allow zone file transfers, which would make the second case not work.

What if the ip of the main host use is totally different from the subdomain like:

abc.com ip is 1.2.3.4

where it's subdomain is

xyz.abc.com ip is 2.3.4.5

Are we still able to trace xyz.abc.com if we only know there is a host call abc.com?

Thanks

Did you even try
$ die the.domain axfr
?

If that didn't work, then you're on your own. It seems to me that if you were supposed to know about this site, you would. If you're authorized to access it, just ask someone for the location. If you're not authorized to view the site, then I'm afraid you won't find any help here. LQ makes it a policy to not aid cracking or other illegal activities.

Thanks for the concern, the site below to my company and I know all the domains by heart. I am just curious and want to learn more. I will never use LQ to aid me in cracking but only in learning.

Thanks
