Whois querying and parsing of domain registration information.

Project description

Whois Python lib
================

This project has been forked from the
https://bitbucket.org/richardpenman/pywhois


Goal
====

- Create a simple importable Python module which will produce parsed
WHOIS data for a given domain.
- Able to extract data for all the popular TLDs (com, org, net, ...)
- Query a WHOIS server directly instead of going through an
intermediate web service like many others do.
- Works with Python 2 & 3



Example
=======

.. sourcecode:: python

>>> import ph4whois
>>> w = ph4whois.whois('webscraping.com')
>>> w.expiration_date # dates converted to datetime object
datetime.datetime(2013, 6, 26, 0, 0)
>>> w.text # the content downloaded from whois server
u'\nWhois Server Version 2.0\n\nDomain names in the .com and .net
...'

>>> print w # print values of all found attributes
creation_date: 2004-06-26 00:00:00
domain_name: [u'WEBSCRAPING.COM', u'WEBSCRAPING.COM']
emails: [u'WEBSCRAPING.COM@domainsbyproxy.com', u'WEBSCRAPING.COM@domainsbyproxy.com']
expiration_date: 2013-06-26 00:00:00
...



Install
=======

Install from pypi:

.. sourcecode:: bash

pip install ph4-python-whois

Or checkout latest version from repository:

.. sourcecode:: bash

git clone https://github.com/ph4r05/python-whois.git

Original repo of the fork

.. sourcecode:: bash
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/richardpenman/pywhois

Note that then you will need to manually install the futures module, which allows supporting both Python 2 & 3:


.. sourcecode:: bash

pip install futures
