I can't find the
dig command on my new CentOS installation. I've tried
dnf install dig but it say that it cannot find the package.
How do I install dig on CentOS?

The DIG tool is part of the BIND Utilities so you need to install them. To install the BIND Utilities, type the following:
$ dnf install bind-utils
You have already provided the specific answer, but if you are looking for other executables or files to see what package they are installed with, utilize
yum whatprovides *relative/path/to/file*, for example:
$ yum whatprovides '*bin/dig' 32:bind-utils-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.6.x86_64 : Utilities for querying DNS name servers Repo : base Matched from: Filename : /usr/bin/dig ...
provides or whatprovides Is used to find out which package provides some feature or file. Just use a specific name or a file-glob-syntax wildcards to list the pack- ages available or installed that provide that feature or file.
