Question Retrieving Server Name From an IP

So, I have an IP, and I wanted to know if there was some way that I could figure out the DNS that it belonged to. (I think that is the right terminology...)

Basically, if I had the IP address "" and wanted to know that it belonged to "", how would I go about it? I thought there was a flag I could set for the 'ping' command, but I haven't been able to find it.
