WhoisXML Domain Reputation REST API v1.0 - How To

The Whois XML Domain Reputation API allows users to assess a domain's or IP addresses' reputation and risk profile with scores (0 to 100, the lower the score, the higher the risk) based on a comprehensive set of data sources. Parameters in the scoring process include website content, WHOIS record, relations to other domains, host configuration; SSL certificates, SSL connection, and SSL configuration; DNS MX records configuration and corresponding mail servers; feeds from known malware databases; the infrastructure of the domain's IP addresses; and reverse IP lookup. The API can be used for enterprise security, forensic investigations, and e-commerce to stay away from potentially dangerous domains.
