Novutec WHOIS Parser

Lookup domain names, IP addresses and AS numbers by WHOIS.

Automatically follows the WHOIS registry referral chains until it finds the correct WHOIS for the most complete WHOIS data. Exceptionally robust WHOIS parser that parses a variety of free form WHOIS data into well-structured data that your application may read. Also returns an indication of whether a domain is available.

Installation

Installing from source: git clone git://github.com/novutec/WhoisParser.git or download the latest release

See Novutec Domain Parser (http://github.com/novutec/DomainParser) or download the latest release and install it as well.

Move the source code to your preferred project folder.

Usage

  • Include Parser.php
require_once 'DomainParser/Parser.php';
require_once 'WhoisParser/Parser.php';
  • Create Parser() object
$Parser = new Novutec\WhoisParser\Parser();
  • Call lookup() method
$result = $Parser->lookup($domain);
$result = $Parser->lookup($ipv4);
$result = $Parser->lookup($ipv6);
$result = $Parser->lookup($asn);
  • Access WHOIS record, the object oriented way.
echo $result->created; // get create date of domain name
print_r($result->rawdata); // get raw output as array
  • You may choose 5 different return types. the types are array, object, json, serialize and xml. By default it is object. If you want to change that call the format method before calling the parse method or provide to the constructer.
$Parser->setFormat('json');
$Parser = new Novutec\WhoisParser\Parser('json');
$Parser->setDateFormat('%d.%m.%Y %H:%M:%S');
  • If you have special WHOIS server or login credentials for a registrar WHOIS you may use the method setSpecialWhois(). Please note that if you have a special WHOIS and the WHOIS output looks different you need your own template.
$Parser->setSpecialWhois(array('it' => array('server' => 'whois.nic.it', 'port' => 43,
'format' => '-u username -w passsword %domain%', 'template' => 'it-your-own-template')));

ToDos

  • Caching of data for better performance and to reduce requests
  • Change HTTP Adapter to use GET/POST
  • Change Socket Adapter to be able to use Socks to split requests.

Known bugs to be fixed in further versions

  • [Template] gTLD cps-datensysteme - need caching for testing, because after 5 requests you get blocked
  • [Template] .BJ - recursive lookup for handles
