Shodan geoping and geodns -Quickly check ping and DNS resolution across multiple locations

Measuring ping and DNS from different vantage points using RIPE Atlas has been something that I have been using for some time now. A few weeks ago, I came across Shodan’s geoping and geodns API, which provides ping and DNS lookup from a few locations and other details such as RTT. This is great because you can quickly check ping and DNS resolution on systems where you only have curl running.
