The Whois XML DNS Lookup API allows identifying who is hosting a particular domain name or website, giving details about the owner's IP address, mail and name servers, and corresponding records (A record, MX records, TXT records, etc.). This is a REST API to perform DNS queries via simple HTTP requests, receiving your results back in JSON or XML format. It contains over 1.2 billion domains and subdomains and almost 150 million MX records and 200 million NS records updated daily. Developers and security specialists can use the API to detect or deal with cybercrime or network security issues, prevent spam or DDoS attacks, and gain a better understanding of an organization's IT infrastructure.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
