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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
