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 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.
