    Thank you man! Very useful article !

    Another trick: it’s possible to use a specific DNS-RESOLVER IP-address, instead those from the system ( /etc/resolv.conf ).

    Below, I queried to the PUBLIC RESOLVER from Google (8.8.8.8):

    # dig @8.8.8.8 http://www.google.com. +short
    189.86.41.103
    189.86.41.109
    189.86.41.84
    189.86.41.118
    189.86.41.93
    189.86.41.98
    189.86.41.104
    189.86.41.108
    189.86.41.99
    189.86.41.119
    189.86.41.113
    189.86.41.123
    189.86.41.88
    189.86.41.89
    189.86.41.94
    189.86.41.114
