Rwhois 1.0.3

R package that queries WHOIS servers.

Installation

Production/CRAN install

This package is available in CRAN.

install.packages("Rwhois")

Development/GIT Install

To install the development or GIT repository version, this requires the “devtools” package available in CRAN.

Install devtools

Assuming you don’t already have devtools installed, run the following:

install.packages("devtools")

Install Rwhois

With devtools installed, it’s fairly simple to install the development branch:

library(devtools)
install_git("https://gitlab.com/BCable/Rwhois.git")

Examples

library(Rwhois)

# Grab WHOIS data for a hostname
whois_query("bcable.net")

# Grab WHOIS data for an IP
whois_query("1.1.1.1")

# Grab WHOIS data for a hostname from a different whois server
whois_query("bcable.net", server="whois.verisign-grs.com")

# Grab multiple vectorized results
domains <- c("bcable.net", "google.com")
whois_query(domains)
