All you need to do is upload it to your webspace! The script will work perfectly well in its default configuration so you can start using it straight away. To configure the script, just open it in a text editor and follow the instructions inside. Step-by-step instructions are provided and are written in plain English as we understand that not everyone is an expert!

Free friendly support for life

Always a pleasure to help you. If you need any help, just let us know!

Always free!

The free script is always free and always will be. It's not a trial script that you need to pay for later. It's a stand-alone script that works in its own right.

Pro script features

1,700 extensions supported

Over 1,700 extensions are supported including generic TLDs and country code TLDs. You can see them on the demo scripts (linked above) or you can see them on the Support section here. By default all the extensions are supported but you can configure the script to only support particular extensions.

New generic TLDs supported

All the new generic TLDs (.computer, .dating, .email etc) are supported and will be added to the script as new ones are released.

Affiliate link to GoDaddy

Show an affiliate link direct to GoDaddy to register available names. The link is a "deep link" that links to the domain search result page on GoDaddy, making it easy for your visitor to purchase the name and earn you commission. This uses the CJ Affiliate (formerly Commission Junction) affiliate program. It's free and easy to open an account with them. The script contains instructions on how to include your Publisher ID in the link so you can earn commission. You can also see the instructions on the Support section here.

Google Adsense or Godaddy banners

You can show a Google Adsense or GoDaddy banner at the top of the page. You can alternate between the two if desired. To show the Adsense banner you need to have a Google Adsense account and you need to configure the script to include your ad_client ID so you get paid for the clicks on the banner. The script contains instructions on how to do this. To show the GoDaddy banner you need to have an account with CJ Affiliate (see above).

Set maximum lookups

You can set the maximum number of lookups that a visitor is allowed to perform. If the visitor exceeds the maximum their IP address gets blocked for 24 hours. This is to prevent bots making huge numbers of requests. This requires a database which the script can create for you.

Set time between lookups

You can set a time that a visitor must wait between performing lookups. This is mainly to prevent bots making rapid requests. This requires a database which the script can create for you.

Block IP addresses

You can permanently block IP addresses automatically if a set maximum number of lookups is exceeded or a set time to wait between lookups isn't observed. Normally in such a case the IP address gets blocked for 24 hours but this option allows you to block it permanently. You can also manually block IP addresses by entering them in the database. This requires a database which the script can create for you. You can configure the script to send you an email if an IP address gets permanently blocked.

Optional CAPTCHA

There is an option to present a CAPTCHA to visitors, that they must successfully complete before performing the lookup.

Single or multiple lookups

You can present a form for looking up single domains (like the free script) or you can present a form for looking up multiple domains where multiple domains may be entered and multiple extensions may be selected. You can show a link on the form allowing visitors to switch between single lookups and multiple lookups. You can also configure which of the forms to show by default.

Internal or external style sheet

The script has an internal CSS style sheet built in which you can configure to match your site. Alternatively you can configure the script to use an external style sheet.

No branding

There is zero branding on the Pro script, unlike the free script which must show a "Powered by WHOIS Lookup Script" link back to this site.

Very easy to install, just one file

All you need to do is upload it to your webspace! The script will work perfectly well in its default configuration so you can start using it straight away. To configure the script, just open it in a text editor and follow the instructions inside. Step-by-step instructions are provided and are written in plain English as we understand that not everyone is an expert!

Free installation if required

Just let us know if you would like us to install it for you.

Free upgrades for life

You get free upgrades of the pro script for life which is pretty useful as new domains are being released all the time or WHOIS servers may change their responses which the script needs to adapt to.

Free friendly support for life

Always a pleasure to help you. If you need any help, just let us know!

Description

WHOIS Lookup Script is a PHP script that you download and install on your website. It offers a WHOIS lookup service which your site visitors can use to find ownership details of domain names or to see if a name is available for registration. The script queries the appropriate WHOIS server for the name and displays the response.

It comes in a free version and a pro version. The pro script has additional features to the free script, details of which you can see on this page. You can make money with the pro script. You can show an affiliate link to GoDaddy if a name is available which links directly to the GoDaddy search result page showing the available name. Also with the pro script you can show a Google Adsense banner or GoDaddy banner.

Have a look at the script demos, linked from the "Demo" link at the top of the page.

Minimum requirements

PHP 4 or PHP 5

Optional requirements

1. mySQL database
2. PHP mail() function

1. You will need a mySQL database if setting a minimum time between lookups, setting a maximum number of lookups, or blocking IP addresses. The script can create the database for you plus we can help you with it if needed.

2. You will need to have the PHP mail() function working on your server in order to receive a notification email when an IP address is blocked (if you configure the script to so do).

These optional requirements relate to the pro script.

License

The pro script is available in a single license or multiple license. With a single license you can use the script on one website. With a multiple license you can use the script on any number of sites. You can purchase a single license then upgrade at any time to a multiple license simply by paying the difference. See the Support section (linked above) for more information.
