This piece of software offers the well-known functionality of the WHOIS internet service, that is, providing information related to domain registration. Such information is usually required before registering a domain (to see if it is available or not), but it may have other uses as well

In order to offer this functionality in a very compact and easy to use form, we have developed a COM+ component that encapsulates it. The main benefit of such a component is that it can be easily integrated into web pages, thus providing an easy way to convey the information to the users

The domain data that the component delivers is the following:

  • Domain existence
  • Domain owner
  • Administrative contact
  • Technical contact
  • Zone contact
  • Registration date
  • Expiration date
  • Last database update time

Platform details

  • Environment: Microsoft Windows 7/Server 2008 R2/Vista
