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.
