Bing-ip2hosts v.0.2 is a search engine owned by Microsoft formerly known as MSN Search and Live Search.It has a unique feature to search for websites hosted on a specific IP address. This feature is can be used with the IP: parameter in the search query as shown in the image above.

Bing-ip2hosts uses this feature to enumerate all hostnames which Bing has indexed for a specific IP address.This technique is considered best practice during the reconnaissance phase of a penetration test in order to discover a larger potential attack surface. Bing-ip2hosts is written in the Bash scripting language for Linux. This uses the mobile interface and no API key is required.

* You can enter a hostname not just an IP,eg. bing-ip2hosts
* Uses /tmp instead of the current path for creating temporary files
* Optional CSV output.Outputs the IP and hostname on each line,separated by a comma.
* Optionally prefix hostnames with http:// so they can be right-clicked in the shell
