DomainTools works tirelessly to build the world’s best database of Whois records, with coverage spanning all of the ccTLDs and each new gTLD as it comes online—not to mention the “big six” TLDs: com, net, org, biz, info, and us. We believe we have reason to claim that our coverage is unparalleled. But now we have taken it, as they say, to the next level: we have developed the world’s best Whois parsing engine.
Since parsed Whois has existed for a while, we knew we had to clear a high bar in order to claim market leadership. We believe we have and encourage you to try it and let us know what you think.
- Covers more domains than anyone else—270M+ including ccTLDs and new gTLDs
- Parses over 95% of Whois record formats—industry’s highest
- Is highly reliable thanks to state of the art DomainTools data centers
- Normalizes fields that vary in format such as dates and phone numbers
- Priced competitively
The Parsed Whois API is optimized to allow quick retrieval of a Whois record, with each data field parsed out separately for easy integration into your systems and applications. This is ideal for anyone wishing to search for, index, or cross-reference data from one or multiple Whois records without having to build their own text parser. It opens up nearly limitless possibilities for domain-based research, investigations, and analysis.
Why this is important
In short, because it enables faster, more efficient analysis of the data, because it is delivered in a structured and context-relevant format. People seek Whois data because they are interested in learning about individual domains, groups of domains, the people behind domains or connections between domains. Many kinds of domain-related investigations, such as threat intelligence, incident response or online fraud investigations, depend on this information.
If you are using Whois data for security investigations or incident response, you already know that you can’t afford stale, inaccurate or missing data. While we have long been the leader in Whois data with the best coverage and frequency, we can now make the (somewhat immodest, but indulge us!) claim of the world’s best Whois parsing engine, with the highest level of accuracy and data normalization. That’s how the best just got even better. Visit the Parsed Whois API page to learn more.
