► WHOIS Information (Subscription Required)
Every year, millions of individuals, businesses, organizations and governments register domain names. Each one must provide identifying and contact information which may include: name, address, email, phone number, and administrative and technical contacts.
◆ Get key data points for domains including Registrant name, organization, e-mail address, registration address, registrar information, creation date, expiration date, updated date, domain availability, domain age, and much more.
◆ Real-time Whois data, ensuring that only the most up to date and accurate information is available.
▸ Cyber Security researchers use WHOIS for investigating & curbing cybercrime, detect spam, malicious websites, intrusions, and other online misbehavior.
▸ Payment processors and banks use WHOIS to detect transaction fraud by spotting anomalies in customer information to flag down potential malicious acts.
▸ Domainers use WHOIS to check domain names availability and to track domain registration changes. They can see all historical changes to specific domains with a simple search while the monitoring functionality lets them stay updated on the most recent domain changes.
▸ Registries, registrars and domain brokers use WHOIS to ensure reliable and secure domain name ownership transfer and management.
▸ Brand agents use Whois data to protect their intellectual property and to check potential trademark infringements. They also use Whois searches to scope domain name similarities, duplicates, or copycats.
▸ Domain investors use the information gained from Whois searches to learn about their competition and to identify investment opportunities.
▸ Law enforcement agencies use WHOIS to identify all the connected domains, websites and IP addresses associated with fraudulent activities and criminals.
▸ Website owners and managers use WHOIS to identify new business and partnership opportunities and to locate potential buyers through the contact details provided in the Whois records.
▸ Market researchers can use WHOIS to obtain more insights on their user base with statistical analyses, helping them create better marketing strategies and campaigns, focus on the right customers, and cater to formerly untapped markets.
▸ Digital forensics and incident response (DFIR) and other cybersecurity consultants can rely on WHOIS API to provide clients with easy-to-read lists of domains that may have ties to cybercrime, thus allowing them to enhance their cyber defense. This information could be particularly useful in mitigating phishing and other malware-enabled attacks.
► DNS Information (Subscription Required)
A domain has a number of records associated with it, a DNS server can be queried to determine the IP address of the primary domain (A record), mail servers (MX records), DNS servers (NS nameservers) and other items such as SPF records (TXT records).
◆ Displays the DNS information critical for identifying who is hosting a particular domain name or website.
◆ To Determine the Mail Servers for Particular Domain You might use this API to find out what server(s) accept email for a specific domain (by doing an MX record lookup).
◆ Determine the IP address of the primary domain (A record), mail servers (MX records), DNS servers (name servers) and other items such as SPF records (TXT records).
◆ To Determine Whether the Domain Restricts Who Can Send email You might use this API to determine the SPF record for a domain (by looking up the TXT record for the domain), to see if the domain tries to restrict who can send email using the domain.
