Current WHOIS API

Get the most recent WHOIS record of any domain name.

Our Current WHOIS Database contains the latest WHOIS record of only active domain names (over 190 Million), that are currently registered. You can fetch the most recent WHOIS record of any domain name through our Current WHOIS API. We update WHOIS data of over 5 million domain names every day! So, the maximum age of 99% WHOIS records in our Current WHOIS Database would be less than 1 month. For most of the popular domain names, the WHOIS data would not be older than 3 days.

Get the most recent WHOIS record of a domain name through the following API:

https://api.bigdomaindata.com/?key=XXXXX&current_whois=google.com

Replace the key "XXXXX" with your own API key, generated through the Members Area.

Cost for Single Query = (1 API Credit per Domain Name)
