Project Description

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

>>> import whois
>>> w = whois.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:

pip install python-whois

Or checkout latest version from repository:

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:

pip install futures
