WHOIS services with non-standard interface

WHOIS services with non-standard interface I’ve long wanted to start writing articles about various advanced WHOIS services, and services with a very standard interface. In the beginning I thought to combine the article “Services for the selection of the domain” with this, but later decided against it and publish a separate article. A short introduction, whois-service allows you to get information about the site or IP-address. On such services can usually be kept informed about any second-level domains zones, information about IP-addresses belonging to networks, information about the objects, etc.

You can find out the registration data for the website owner, specify the IP address and host name of the server, find the location of the server (country, city, ISP). You can also specify the type of server and learn under what operating system the server is running. Who wants to be able to learn DNS server and E-mail Administrator DNS, which sites are on the IP so on. WHOIS services are very much in the network, write in any search engine query and you get a whole slew of alternatives. Functionality about all the same. In the same review, I want to show you some more advanced services and with non-standard interface.

WHOIS services with non-standard interface

The most classic version and probably all familiar with this whois.sc or is it full address http://whois.domaintools.com/. On this service can really learn a lot about almost any domain. use of such services is very simple, we are interested in, enter the domain or ip address in the box and click on the button “Lookup”.
I recommend to walk on the top menu and get acquainted with the different tools of this service. The truth is if you buy them an account, then the service will be much more powerful.

Whois – what is it?

The Working Group conducted its own research to understand the degree of confidence in the service from the owners of domains. They found that the credibility of the website is enhanced if the user sees icons VeriSign and TRUSTe, when it comes to commercial resources (expressed as 68%). Web sites of companies and trademarks, which are already known to users, too credible (63%). French “users”, for example, look whether there is in the address bar letters https, when turning a page of personal information.

Interesting data about what users are doing, if the site is in doubt. They begin to look for contact information on the site (67%), as well as reviews on the network (60%). When study participants were asked to find the domain of the site and its owner, most have done it correctly (66%) and was told that it was easy. They acknowledged that they found the information you were looking for (76%), and that the information they found in their opinion, is reliable (85%).

But in general, the experts agreed that the understanding of what Whois, among users is low (24%). 77% did not know that the owner of the site can be found in the Whois, and not only and not so much in the contacts. It is logical that as one of the main tasks of ICANN now propose to consider raising awareness of users.

The position of domain administrators about Whois quite controversial. For example, according to a survey of the Association of Administrators of European National Top Level Domain (CENTR) among its members, 66% of registrars allow their clients to hide your name in the service Whois. 64% of those who register in the national domain, said they, if necessary, will provide data to law enforcement authorities, and only 8% would do so only by court order.
