Are there any public services available to give you detailed stats on a domain name, such as MX record, A record, sub-domains etc?

I have a client with Xtra and I want to transfer them over to our registrar but they are unsure what on their domain points where - a tool to check this would be very helpful.

The only way you will be able to get all the info is to do a AXFR (domain transfer DNS request, used when the slave server needs the information from the master), you can use "dig" to do this, if you have it.

dig AXFR thedomaininquestion.com @thierprimarynameserver.com

Whether xtra will allow the AXFR to you is another matter, worth trying for a start.

Xtra/Telecom can provide the zone file, if required.

That's probably the best idea, didn't know if they could do that or not.

Thanks to all the other posters, I've added them to my bookmarks.
