The Whois API returns well-parsed WHOIS fields in XML and JSON formats. The service covers over 6.0B WHOIS records, with close to 600M domains and 3,000 TLDs tracked. The API allows developers to monitor domain registrations, check domain name availability, and learn more about domain registrants to avoid fraudulent and criminal activities. The API can also be used for brand protection and other purposes.
How does it work? The service automatically follows the WHOIS registry referral chains until it finds the correct WHOIS registrars with the most comprehensive WHOIS data.
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.
