More than 250 million domain names have been registered, and behind each domain name registration is a wealth of data that may be useful to many companies across a broad range of applications. JsonWHOIS, an API-based provider, enables its customers to retrieve WHOIS records through a RESTful API.
Domain registrar Name.com announced this week the general availability of version 4 of its API. The API can be used to perform domain name lookups, as well as register, renew, transfer, and manage domains. It also provides functionality for setting up website redirects and email forwarding.
