whois help

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I realy like this forum, so quick and perfect replies. Thanks in advance

Got a small issue again, am not really sure if this is the right place to ask but I have a small whois script that checks for the availability and info of com, net, org etc domains. I am using $whois = "whois.internic.com" for com and net extensions

All works perfect but just sometimes it delievers the wrong info. and so wrong that if you look for nasa.com, it will tell you that the domain is free to register. with net, org and all other extensions there is no mistake, only with com is sometimes wrong. i changed the server into $whois = "rs.internic.net" but still same.

Can anyone tell me how should I resolve the problem? and which are the authentic databases for different extension? Also can anybody tell me how to whois IP addresses?

All help would be apreciated, Thanks in advance!

That is correct, nasa.com is available. Maybe you are looking for nasa.gov?

Some built-in functions that might be interesting:

Hi Poirot

Thanks for the quick reply. am a bit confused now [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/unsure.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":unsure:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"unsure.gif\" /] two reasons: 1st am wondering how can a com extension with with name nasa be still free? and 2nd if it is free then why is register.com and domains.yahoo.com saying that it is not?
Your links are sure useful.

Many Thanks
