comment Is there a way to get the complete zone file for a domain without contacting its host?
This won't work for most domains. This website just tries an AXFR transfer, as mentioned in pilif's answer, but as pilif's answer explains, that usually won't work. So, unfortunately, this answer adds little value over pilif's answer, and should be written to explain the caveats.

This doesn't answer the question that was asked. This lets you do a DNS lookup for a single domain name (e.g., www.yahoo.com). It doesn't download all of the records in a zone (e.g., all domains *.yahoo.com).

comment SSH DSA keys no longer work for password-less authentication
@Jakuje, yes, key type selection is discussed on Information Security here and here. I read all of that before writing my editorial remark, and I remain puzzled why DSA keys were disabled: they are no weaker than RSA keys of the same length, which were not disabled. There's nothing in any of those threads that indicates DSA is "questionable", and as Thomas Pornin says, "there is no security-related reason to prefer one type over any other, assuming large enough keys".

comment SSH DSA keys no longer work for password-less authentication
Thanks, @dave_thompson_085. This is not a dupe of superuser.com/q/962918/93541. That question is asking how to use ssh -Q. This is asking how to trouble-shoot a failure of SSH. I did find some of the material at superuser.com/q/962918/93541 and elsewhere helpful in identifying this solution, but the answer there describes how to use ssh -Q and does not answer this question (e.g., it doesn't explain how to fix this problem), so in my view it's not a dup. The one on Unix & Linux is very similar; I wish I'd seen that one earlier. Thanks again for the links!

Don't use all-caps; it is like shouting. Clean up English and formatting. Reduce use of bold. Remove Updates - we have revision history for that.

comment Is it safe to register on an HTTP webpage when I am using VPN?
Please see the Security.SE page for how to ask a good question about security: "What background should I give in my question? Security is a very contextual topic: threats that are deemed important in your environment may be inconsequential in somebody else's, and vice versa. Are you trying to protect something of global value against Advanced Persistent Threats? Or are you looking for a cost-effective approach for a low-profile small business? To get the most helpful answers you should tell us: [...]" Then, edit your question to include this.
