    Whois Lookup of .co domain

    I need to do a whois lookup of a .co domain from the command line.

    I installed "whois" and can do lookups on .com domains and others, but I need to get it working with .co

    Anyone know a server that will let me query .co domains?

    Thanks, but that's a web interface.

    I need to be able to query the whois information from a bash script.

    you may need to edit your whois.conf

    http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...1/whois.1.html

    by default it uses networksoultions and ARIN via internic

    ARIN doesnt list South and Latin America, there are 5 major registrars worldwide, APNIC, ARIN, RIPE NCC, Lacnic, and AFRINIC

    You could add aliases to your bash profile to allow you do it from command line if you wanted to, allowing you to choose what whois server you wanted, there are many

    Edit: here is a good link providing some good alisases for different servers http://answers.oreilly.com/topic/408...ts-many-forms/

    hmm... it was a script issue... I just took out the unnecessary explicit declaration of the whois server and everything works fine now.

    that sounds about right, an explicit declaration will limit the results.

    There are many whois servers speialising in different domains via the 5 different registrars.

    Glad you got it sorted.

    Peace
