The WHOIS API is divided into discrete products with queries that follow a RESTful URL structure whenever feasible. Each product gives authorized access for the sample URLs provided with each package. If you haven't previously, you may wish to examine the getting started guide to learn about authentication and response types.

The Domain Search API looks for domain names that match your exact search query. Unlike Domain Suggestions, Domain Search searches presently registered or previously registered domain names that are either now registered or have been registered in the past under one of the major gTLD's (.com, .net, .org, .info, .us, or .biz), several country code TLDs, or the new gTLDs. You have the option to determine whether the results contain domain names with hyphens and/or numbers, to restrict the length of domain names, and to filter for just current or deleted domains.

The Domain Search takes a domain name and provides a collection of data about the company, the email address identified and further information about the persons holding those email accounts.

The WHOIS BULK API enables you programmatically access fast domain search results and availability status.
