CLI Virtual Host Checker – bingip

bingip is a really simple tool that makes a request to to determine domains hosted at that IP, returning each in plain-text on a new line.

It’s a very simple script at the moment and can only handle up to 50 domains (due to the page limit on Bing – we will update to use API in the future).

bingip accepts a file of IP addresses as input and, more usefully, it accepts an Nmap XML file too.

This means you can run your standard Nmap scans as normal and, when you’re done use bingip to find which websites are hosted on the target IP addresses.

A simple example would be:

nmap -p 80 -oX bingip_example.xml

Now pass the file generated, as an argument, and bingip will automatically extract hosts with web server ports: –nmap_file bingip_example.xml ————–

You can download the tool and see further examples over on our Github page at
