Sir i want whois Checker but i can’t find where is it? Please help me any one…

We are using Blesta. ( www.blesta.com )

1) – How would we integrate this into our Blesta install ?

2) – Do you have a user manual that we could read first ?

3) – How many TLD’s does this handle ?

4) – Can we add our own TLD’s ?

5) – Is there a way to get the “Recommendations” to show up automatically ?

6) – Can we customize the “Buy Now” buttons to go to a custom URL ?

7) – Is the WHOIS functionality free ?

8 )Is this mobile phone responsive ?


I am working on a PHP/MySQL based system that requires me to store the WHOIS details on the domains in our database. Currently that is around 90.000 domains, and using a simple curl script to fetch the whois data is running into limitations of requests per 24h etc.

If I understand correctly, your script allows unlimited whois requests? And am I able to adjust it so that it can run in the background and the whois data is automatically stored in our database? Or will I run into the same limitations with whois requests per day?

Thanks! Best regards,


Clicking WHOIS doesn’t echo any information. Been using it for 10 months & up until now it’s stopped working

No problem, can you email me using my message box on my profile page and I will get back to you later today and provide you with a working script.

Wow, highly appreciated man! ceb sent me the script within a couple hours, I suggest dealing with him, very high quality and provides excellent customer service!

Hey man, the update you sent me actually works but the pop-up is blocked for malicious content, meaning the user will have to disable https for it to work. Any fix for this?

I don’t know if it is an “urban legend” (a myth) or not, but you may have heard stories about people who have checked on the availability of a domain name only to find out hours, or a day or two later, when they go back to purchase it, it was purchased by someone else (maybe even the same company / website where they did the checking, i.e., GoDaddy). Will this happen with your script? I know you can’t guarantee it won’t happen (there is such a thing as coincidence), but does the method you use do anything to specifically avoid such a thing from happening? Thanks.

I m ready to buy If Added without EXT Means user put only name and Auto select generic top-level domains consists of the com, info, net, and org domains. In addition, the domains biz, name, and pro are also considered generic;

Is it possible to add the Domain Expiration date to the displayed data?

I cannot add this but im sure a freelancer could provide this for you.

But the expiration date is pulling through to the pop up when you look at each domain individually. Is it not possible to add this as a column easily to the initial search page? I can add the code I would just need a little bit of an idea as for what the variable needs to be to call it from the Whois.

This is not a simple question of parsing the response string as it might sound at the first moment because domain name registrars provide information in different format.


I need the script work with Spanish domain .es. Is it possible?

Nice script. Can you add an option to add the Whois information of registered domain name in the txt file as well?

Hi I purchased the product..Is there a way to get rid of error messages? “Fatal error: Call to a member function attributes() on null in ” I don’t want to show any error messages at all. Is there a way to remove error messages from showing no matter what the error condition is?

Still no answer – what is the status of this bug?

Hello, I am looking into this Doug. It is actually quite a complex fix.

Thanks for reply ceb..Is there any way you can just trap the fatal errors and not display the error? That might be quicker than trying to solve the entry errors.


Can you customize it to notify the website admin when a domain becomes available? Specifically, .ae domains. Please note that the whois query doesn’t return expiry date.


Thank You
