This is a web-based application that can check the registration status of a domainname. This is a realy good solution for hosting providers, that wants to let it’s users to check if a domainname is still free for registration or not. I’ve made this for a view small hosting providers, and after some development (5 years) We’ve now got the best domain checkup script ever! ;) (mrrff, smelly isn’t it?) We now develop this application and class with the two of us, me and bokko.
It’s not using any system calls! It’s opening a socket to the whois server. So it should run on any server with PHP4 or higher installed! Download, untar, upload to your server and point your browser to the whois.php, and you’re ready for business! If every thing was that easy…
This new version does parallel scanning. And the triggers are set per server. The old version scanned wrong!! You should upgrade to this version for better results!
If in the example some domain lookups fail, that could be your firewall. Keep in mind that some firewalls block outgoing ports. For whois that is port 43 and for http 80 and for https 443.
Here are the features of the current version 4.0
- Connect to any whois server.
- Scan several domains parallel.
- Not using any command line tools.
- Easy to implement.
Rebuild GUI example with AJAX for better security on unauthorized usage by other servers than on your own network. If some one has done this, and want to share it… It would save me some time. ;)

Download and untar the file (tar -zxvf WhoisDomainCheckup.tgz), upload it and point your browser to one of the examples. Windows users can use WinRAR to decompress the file.

These examples are also included in the package.
Example is offline, here is an implemented version.
I had to take the example offline, cause some irritating bastard hammerd my whois script and did 5 milion requests. :(
I will make a new example, and will implement my CAPTCHA class ’submitThroughImage’. You also may want to check you logs. When some bastard hammers your script, you could land on some blacklist!
