    Options:
      --version      Show version number                                   [boolean]
      -s, --server   whois server                                    [default: null]
      -f, --follow   number of times to follow redirects                [default: 0]

    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
    	"bind": null     // bind the socket to a local IP address
    	"proxy": {       // (optional) SOCKS Proxy
    		"host": "",
    		"port": 0,
    		"type": 5    // or 4
    	}
    }
