It can be said without a doubt that businesses of the 21st century are all geared towards the internet. With rapid advancements in digital technology and the exponential growth of the online ecosystem, it hardly comes as a surprise that businesses have to maintain a considerable presence on the web in order to cater to the needs of the online population. Apart from this, the rapid proliferation of the internet into even the most remote corners of the world has opened up new business avenues and markets that were previously difficult to access, or even altogether unavailable for business. This has naturally incentivized businesses to move online.
The Internet has marked an explosive growth in the past few years, with around 380 new websites created every second. It’s physically impossible to keep up with even if your job calls for that. But anyone and everyone that needs to keep tabs on the competition and look for new sales and marketing opportunities, has got their hearts set on specific domains or wants to safeguard their digital assets can do so easily with Internet Statistics Reports.
In the past few years, we have been on a mission to create domain Whois, IP, DNS & other internet Intel product solutions to fulfil the growing demand of this information for professionals from diverse industries. We currently offer APIs, Database Downloads, Online Web Tools, Threat Intelligence and Splunk App which is widely used by cybersecurity professionals, marketing & brand protection agencies, domain registrars, domain investors, researchers, and many more.
Spoofing is a situation in which an entity (person or software program) successfully impersonates and masquerades as another successful one, with the purpose of gaining an advantage with regards to personal or business information or brand goodwill.? Domain spoofing occurs when an attacker appears to use a company’s domain to impersonate and masquerade a company and or its products or brands. The domain spoofer may later use the deceived domain name to induce fraudulent practice like phishing i.e. sending deceptive emails pretending to be from a reputed company in order to induce individuals to reveal passwords, credit card numbers or download malicious files.
You asked, we delivered!
We are now thrilled to offer our hallmark Whois data in the form of a new app which will be available in Spunk Enterprise’s Splunkbase.

Whois API, LLC is constantly on a quest to provide accurate & reliable information about domain activities on the web. Our solid foundation, constant innovations & unparalleled databases of Domain, Whois, DNS, IP, OSINT and Threat Intelligence helps professionals from across industries to get the Intel they need. But with over a billion websites, the internet is already quite massive and is constantly growing. With the plethora of websites & their various data-sets, analyzing them can be cumbersome & time-consuming especially in cases of filtering online traffic or finding potentially dangerous websites. In such cases sometimes just knowing ‘what the website is about?’ or ‘the website category’ can help you decide your further course of action.
Threat actors try all kinds of ways to spread their nefarious acts on as many victims as possible. When it comes to phishing, it’s as simple as outright deception. Victims are made to believe they are dealing with a site they trust, after which a perilous cyber trap is triggered, and the damage that ensues can often be irreversible. WHOIS is a valuable tool that can help fortify protections against malicious acts of phishing, thwarting the malicious intent of threat actors before significant threats escalate.
These days, media specialists are gathering information not just from traditional offline sources but from the deep levels of online resources. In fact, in 2017, 42% of journalist surveyed across various countries stated they were already using digital data in their stories twice or more per week — indicating that this data is getting more and more important.
To support this trend, our media partnership service provides the appropriate tools to collect and deliver information or supplement the search of data for journalists, influencers, bloggers, editors, and other media professionals.
