Popular questions for this item

Is there a limitation about requests a day that a costumer can check if the domain(s) are available for register for each (g)TLD’s ?

Each individual whois server will have its own limit. Each TLDs have own whois server. Some of them are quite small, others are basically unlimited; a significant portion of them do not publish their limits, but will refuse you if you exceed them.

WP Domain Checker requiere have certificate for SSL to work?

No, it’s not required SSL certificate. It will work with or without SSL.

How does it work ?

The plugin check the domain through whois server with fsockopen.

fsockopen is a magical php function for accessing raw Internet or Unix domain socket connections, and is one of the most powerful php networking functions.

Most of whois server is use port 43. So, before you purchase the plugin, make sure your hosting server allow fsockopen on port 43. You can ask your hosting provider but most of hosting provider is allow us to use port 43.

FYI, Godaddy not allow us to use port 43. https://support.godaddy.com/help/article/287/do-you-support-fsockopen?countrysite=au

UPDATE
Since version 3.0, we added Whois API to the plugin, so if your hosting provider block port 43 the plugin automatically use our API to check domain availability. So, you still can use the plugin although you on Godaddy or other hosting that block port 43. :)
