Version 2.2 of GeekTools SuperWhois is now available at under the software icon.


1) All 3 apps (web-based, proxy (source), and Windows client) answer for
101 g-tld and cc-tlds. 

2) V2.2 takes care of all registrars in the .com .net and .org g-tlds,
by first examining crsnic, then querying the relevant whois server. If
you find problems, let us know.

NOTE: There are a number of cc-tld whois servers that *only* provide a
web interface. We're trying to work with their 'managers' to create a
command-line whois. As we convince them, we'll add them. In the interim
we'll try and create a set of links to them off the geektools whois

3) To control spammers, the daily limit per source-ip through the proxy
and web versions is set at 50. If you would like this number increased,
bribe us at complaints at, and give us real contact
information for you, plus a promise that you won't use the service for
spam reasons. We monitor, and Guido and Sal enforce the rules ;-)

4) no longer spawns a seperate browser session
for applications (enough of you complained).

As always, updates and suggestions to complaints at
