The Whois APIs return well-parsed whois fields in XML and JSON formats. The Whois APIs can be used to track domain registrations, check domain name availability, detect credit card fraud, locate users geographically. The Whois Domain Availability API returns information regarding the availability of specific domains. Whois offers 100 free lookups to test their API service before an account is required. Sample code exists that demonstrates how to access the Domain Availability API with PHP & Java code.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
