Q. The site
returned a message saying that I have been banned for 24hrs. Why
Ans. While we have
tried our best to provide this service with few limitations, we
are aware that there are a few people who would abuse the WhoIs
utility, namely harvesting email addresses. Therefore, we have a
parameter that tracks the IP address and the number of WhoIs queries
made from that IP address during the day. This parameter is adequate
for most people so most users will not be affected. Also, you are
only banned for 24hrs from making Whois queries. During this time,
you can continue to make other DNS queries with no problems.
Q. I would
like to make more queries during a day without getting banned. Can
you help me?
Ans. Yes. If you feel
that you have a legible reason for making more queries during a
day, then please send an email to email@example.com requesting
so and also please provide your reasoning & IP address. We will
then add you to our whitelist. However, should anyone take abuse
this, then they will be permanently banned.
Q. I would
like to email the results to myself. However, i am afraid that my
email address will be stored.
Ans. Spamming is a
major problem and we understand every users concern about giving
away email addresses. However, none of the email addresses entered
on this site are stored. They are discarded after the entry is made.
Q. Can i link
my site to your utilities?
Ans. We always welcome
linking your site to ours.
Q. Would you
sell this utility source code to us?
Ans. No. This utility
is provided as a free service and we do not intend to sell the code
for commercial purposes.
