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 libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
