Project Description

WHOIS

Python module/library for retrieving WHOIS information of domains.

By DDarko http://ddarko.org/

Features

  • Python wrapper for Linux “whois” command
  • simple interface to access parsed WHOIS data for a given domain
  • able to extract data for all the popular TLDs (com, net, org, uk, pl, ru, lv, jp, co_jp, de, at, eu, biz, info, name, us, co, me, be, nz, cz, it, fr, kg, vc, fm, tv, edu, ca)
  • query a WHOIS server directly instead of going through an intermediate web service like many others do
  • works with Python 2.4+ and Python 3.x
  • all dates as datetime objects
  • possibility to cache results

Usage example

>>> import whois
>>> domain = whois.query('google.com')
>>> print(domain.__dict__)
{
        'expiration_date': datetime.datetime(2020, 9, 14, 0, 0),
        'last_updated': datetime.datetime(2011, 7, 20, 0, 0),
        'registrar': 'MARKMONITOR INC.',
        'name': 'google.com',
        'creation_date': datetime.datetime(1997, 9, 15, 0, 0)
}
>>> print(domain.name)
google.com
>>> print(domain.expiration_date)
