The main aim of Google is to provide the most relevant search results to its users. It’s constantly trying to deliver value and provide content that people want to engage with, without much fuss. Web pages and content on the web are ranked based on over 200 factors which Google considers most relevant. But with Google’s ever increasing popularity, individuals and businesses have realized the importance of ranking high organically and are trying to manipulate the system to project themselves in the top search results, sometimes even when they are irrelevant.
With the growth of the worldwide web and internet users, online shopping, due to its varied benefits has become a norm of the day. While online merchants are reaping its benefits, they surely are facing a major hurdle with ‘chargebacks’ and other losses, due to the increasing occurrences of Credit Card frauds!
Even after a Credit Card processor or registration service approves an order, the merchant should perform additional checks at his/ her end as fraudulent orders are sometimes approved. Online merchants need to develop safeguards to prevent fraud and thereby reduce their losses.
Domain names represent the online identification of individuals, businesses, and organizations. Rising cyber security threats have time and again proven that individuals and organizations must protect their virtual assets against a range of threats or circumstances that may result in temporary or permanent loss of their domain name.
The threats a domain owner faces can be both external as well as internal. An external attack would be when a malicious entity tries to gain unauthorized access to a domain name registration account in order to control a domain name or to alter Domain Name System (DNS) information associated with that domain name. An internal threat can be in the form of a failure to renew a domain name, which can also result in the loss of your domain name.
With the steady adoption of the Internet worldwide, majority of the businesses are shifting to the web. It has now become crucial for businesses to have an online presence. As of 2016, there are about 1.1 billion websites with about 4.5 billion total pages. But out of these websites about 60% are ‘inactive’. These websites are kept as ‘placeholders’ for sale or have only a page or so of stale content.
With the advent of Twenty Seventeen, we at WhoisXmlApi are looking forward to further expanding our horizons in the domain industry. Last year we took some significant steps growing in the domain data space. Instead of just being a provider for various types of Whois Data, we ventured into providing solutions, so we can partner with our customers in simplifying their domain research.
In 2016, our first leap away from only dealing with domain Whois data started with the introduction of Website Classification Database which essentially categorizes and provides a database of over 100 million websites.
At WhoisXmlApi.com, we take great pride in developing products that can help our users in their various undertakings, from investigating Cyber Crime or brand fraud, to competitive research, domain management and acquisition. Datapoints that add insight to individual domains and connections between them are especially helpful, and we are constantly trying to provide data that can add value to our users’ research!
Our Whois products and services, provide intelligence about almost all the existing TLD’s . As useful as this information is, however, there is much more that can be learned about a domain by going beyond the data in the Whois record itself.
If your business requires historic Domain data on a large scale, opting for Domain Database Downloads is the perfect solution. While the database dumps provided by WhoisXmlApi.com is well parsed and provided in popular MYSQL or CSV files, fishing the required data from the plethora of information in the database can be a little cumbersome!
Understanding our customers need for streamlined and fast fishing, we have partnered with WhoDat, in order to help companies that prefer not to invest in creating a back-end infrastructure for Database Downloads. WhoDat works as a front-end for WhoisXmlApi.com data, providing an interactive, pivotable application for analysts to use while performing research.
