A WHOIS client for NodeJS


Node-whois is a WHOIS client for Node.js.

$ npm install node-whois
var whois = require('node-whois')
whois.lookup('', function(err, data) {

You may pass an object in between the address and the callback function to tweak the behavior of the lookup function:

    "server":  "",   // this can be a string ("host:port") or an object with host and port as its keys; leaving it empty makes lookup rely on servers.json 
    "follow":  2,    // number of times to follow redirects 
    "timeout": 0,    // socket timeout, excluding this doesn't override any default timeout value 
    "verbose": false // setting this to true returns an array of responses from all servers 

Contributions are welcome.
