IP WHOIS

Gathered from RIRs & NIRs.

Complete

Our IP WHOIS data is gathered from the five Regional Internet Registries (AfriNIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE) and supplemented with data from a number of country-level National Internet Registries.

Crisp

Because our IP WHOIS database is updated daily, you can be sure that the results you're seeing from the API are fresh and up-to-date.

Correct

We use a variety of collection techniques to ensure that we're eking out all the right information, and we run a full automated cross-validation test suite against each build to keep the quality up.

Referral WHOIS

Gathered from hundreds of rwhois servers.

Keys on a book

Extensive

Referral WHOIS servers are ISP-level datastores. We regularly connect to every currently active referral WHOIS server on the internet and interrogate it for IP registration details.

Expert

Our intelligent collection technology dynamically adapts to the characteristics and structure of each server, enabling us to wring out every bit of information.

Exhaustive

The referral WHOIS protocol has no formal schema. To enable normalization, we exhaustively mapped every field from every server into a single unified model. That means when you run a query, you just get clean, structured, data.

Reverse DNS

Gathered by scanning IPv4 space.

Light painting with fireworks

Industrious

Our custom-coded resolver continuously crawls DNS PTR records across the entire IPv4 address space.

Impartial

We work from first principles, going right back to the root servers to ensure we're getting unbiased data. We garner positive returns for around 1.3 billion IP addresses.

Inventive

Our proprietrary summary algorithms sweep over all results and infer the material structure of IP block to domain relationships. This allows us to mark up around 45% of routable IPv4 space.
