RoboWhois is a cloud-based web service that provides a RESTful API to access WHOIS records and domain related information with a unified, consistent interface.

Using RoboWhois domain API you can:

  • Lookup WHOIS information for a domain or IP
  • Access WHOIS data using a consistent HTTP-based interface
