A Few of My Favorite Online Tools

IP Calculator

ipcalc takes an IP address and netmask and calculates the resulting broadcast, network, Cisco wildcard mask, and host range. By giving a second netmask, you can design subnets and supernets. It is also intended to be a teaching tool and presents the subnetting results as easy-to-understand binary values.

This allows you to check the current state of DNS propagation after having made changes to your domains records.
