Yes, the server sends the IPv4 or IPv6 address of the host hex coded. You can 
try verifying it from the above link I send you.

Thanks for the support. But I will take care of it. Else what is the fun in 
this :D. I just read more about our reponse from the DOH server - the best part 
of DOH is that the there's really no difference - that's one of the main points 
with DoH. A DoH server will respond with a body that is identical to a response 
from your typical DNS server RFC 1035 describes the layout of that response.

So, I just need to take the response buffer from the HTTP body and use the lib 
resolv to get it done. If you think I am wrong - do let me know.
