You can use nslookup or you can use dig, I prefer dig, plus nslookup is depricated.

you can use dig at the command line;

dig @hostname-or-ip-of-dns-to-query some-host-name.com

you can also do the reverse (reverse lookup), i.e. provide an IP address and get the hostname;

dig -x @hostname-or-ip-of-dns-to-query 1.22.222.1
