For a given domain name, dnstwist generates a list of similarly
looking domains and performs DNS queries for each of them (A, AAAA,
NS and MX). For MX records it checks whether there is an active mail
server which could intercept misdirected emails. Moreover it
estimates webpage similarity based on fuzzy hashes. This functionality
might be helpful in discovering typosquatters, phishing sites or
otherwise fraudulent services and corporate espionage.
