SmartWhois is a useful network information
utility that allows you to look up all the available information
about an IP address, hostname or domain, including country, state
or province, city, name of the network provider, administrator and
technical support contact information.
It helps you find answers to these important questions:
- Who is the owner of the domain?
- When was the domain registered and what is the owner's contact information?
- Who is the owner of the IP address block?
With SmartWhois you can focus on your work; the program will
unmistakably choose the right database from over 100 whois
databases all over the world and fetch the most complete results
within a few seconds. SmartWhois supports Internationalized Domain
Names (IDNs), so you can query domain names that use non-English
characters, like German umlauts, French accent grave, or fully
consist of the letters from Chinese, Hebrew, Russian, and other
alphabets. It also fully supports IPv6 addresses.
Here are some key features of "SmartWhois":
