New whois proxy - geektools

  • From: Rodney Joffe
  • Date: Thu Mar 25 17:14:31 1999

You can now use www.geektools.com as a proxy for command line whois
queries instead of just the web interface. It is the same 'smart' whois
that will automagically parse the query, and get the data from the known
authoritative whois server for that tld or domain. Currently queries for
about 80 tld's.

We've tried to optimize and fix the code to handle the current
internic.net whois goings on - including taking care of retries for
stuck requests.

Use www.geektools.com or whois.geektools.com.

so...

whois -h whois.geektools.com 'query'
or
whois 'query'@whois.geektools.com

Enjoy!
