WHOIS
=============
Python module/library for retrieving WHOIS information of domains.
By DDarko http://ddarko.org/
Updated for the Better URL Reputation Platform by Khalid Aziz
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, org, net, biz, info, pl, jp, uk, nz, ...)
* 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)
