Who Cares About Whois Records?

19 Feb , 2015   by John Horton

Whibse’s bulk Whois lookup tool makes it easy to sort through website registration data. We combine records from hundreds of servers into a searchable, easy-to-read spreadsheet. If you don’t regularly use Whois lookup, the utility of this research tool may not be immediately obvious. Yet Whois registration data is crucial for experts from a variety of fields, from law enforcement to legal research to website development. And because Whois registration is kept for nearly all websites, it supports overall Internet stability. Read on to discover why Whois records are important.

Using Bulk WHOIS Parsing for Cybercrime Analysis

26 Jun , 2014   by Laura Jedeed

Cybercrime investigation traditionally relies heavily on WHOIS information at every step of the investigative process.

Using Whibse Templates to Make Whois Easier

4 Jun , 2014   by John Horton

Whibse’s bulk Whois tool gives you a lot of columns — nearly 100, in fact, including all of the parsed Whois fields, IP address, content hosting provider, name servers, and much more. But sometimes you don’t need all of this information: I often only need to know who the domain name registrar is, for example, and don’t need all of the 90+ columns that a full spreadsheet returns.

eFax: Using Whibse to Detect Fake Websites

21 Apr , 2014   by Jonathan

7 Apr , 2014   by Jonathan

In preparing to launch Whibse, our team was excited about giving Internet users the ability to see who is behind multiple websites at once. But we realized this could open up an avenue for spammers or shady marketers to obtain domain name registration (“Whois”) records in bulk, and contact domain name registrants in a way that’s unwelcome and inappropriate.

Whois — It’s a Good Thing

25 Mar , 2014   by Jonathan

In the era of transparency, WHOIS  information — the name, address, phone number and other contact information about a domain name registrant — is a breath of fresh air.  It gives you the ability to determine who controls a domain name.  It gives you the power to understand who is behind the enterprise, organization or message being offered on the Internet, so that you can know who you are dealing with.   More…
