This is a client library for the Whois API service. With this API you can

  • Check if a domain name is available
  • Get its whois data or query an arbitrary whois server
  • Don't worry about rate limits on the respective whois server

The service supports all domains of the Whois Server list, which is more than 500 top level domains.


Use Composer:

composer require whois-server-list/whois-api


You'll need an api key to use this library. Get one from the Whois API.

$whoisApi = new whoisServerList\WhoisApi("apiKey");


$whoisApi = new whoisServerList\WhoisApi("apiKey");
echo $whoisApi->isAvailable("") ? "available" : "registered";
