Node WHOIS

Build Status

Node WHOIS is a WHOIS client for Node.js.

Installation

Global

$ npm install -g whois

Usage

whois [options] address

Options:
  -s, --server   whois server                         [default: null]
  -f, --follow   number of times to follow redirects  [default: 0]
  -v, --verbose  show verbose results                 [default: false]
  -h, --help     display this help message            [default: false]

Local

$ npm install whois

Usage

var whois = require('whois')
whois.lookup('google.com', function(err, data) {
    console.log(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 
}
