As a professional developer, I sometimes need to know the domain registrar, domain expiration date, and other data. There are plenty of tools designed for this purpose. Our team prefers Virbox Whois tool to lookup domain meta information. When some other tools fail to perform the lookup, this service works seamlessly.
How to perform Whois query
There are two main ways to do whois lookup:
- Executing system command-line utilities
- Using online services
You can use both, but the second way is more user-friendly. You don't need to open the terminal, type the command and find out what is what in the output. You just enter the website name and press "Whois". And that's all!
