We started this service in 1998 as the first smart whois that would
automatically query the correct server(s) to get the data you need.
A lot has changed since then and it’s time to move on. Most modern
command line clients on *nix-like systems will select the appropriate
whois server. Check your system’s man page (“man whois” for those of
you who don’t know what a man page is). If you prefer to use a browser
interface there are many sites that perform the same function and
they’re easy to find with your favorite search engine.
It’s been a good run, and thanks for using this service over the
