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.
The rapid digitization of human interactions has opened up vistas of opportunity that were previously unheard of. Whether we consider business or social interactions, the extreme connectivity that is afforded by the web helps us to access information and communicate at the speed of thought. Naturally, with such a complex system of exchanges, the need to provide proper user engagement has also become paramount.
We humans are naturally visual creatures. With a highly developed visual cortex, our minds are equipped to process visual information much better than any other form of communication. For this very reason, we prefer to interact through visual modes more than any other medium. This has led to a rise in the use of visual content on the internet.
We are really excited to announce that we are now offering our hallmark Whois via a command-line utility, “bestwhois”. This tool can be a great alternative to the standard “whois” command for domain and IP WHOIS queries, as there are no search restrictions and the queries are made through the API service provided by Whois XML API.
Most suitable for UNIX power users and other command-line enthusiasts, bestwhois, is a cross-platform utility that works on Microsoft, Linux, Unix, Mac OS X or any other platform with Python. It is command-line front-end to Whois XML API; WHOIS API and WHOIS History API. All the queries initiated from your end are processed through these APIs, and the output is similar to that of the original “whois” command.
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.
Sometime back we introduced 2 product solutions to help provide clearly defined website Intel in the form of Website Categorization API & Website Contacts API. Both the APIs combine the application of machine learning with the versatility of rules defined by experts and deploy artificial intelligence to obtain precise results. This enables our users to conduct their research from a single source instead of manually examining multiple sources.
Our premier Web Categorization solution conducts multiple layers of filtering & analysis of the content found on the website as well as its code to ensure every website is categorized accurately.
Importance of online brand
The ease & gigantic potential that the Internet provides to businesses to expand their reach amongst their customers and tap markets that traditionally would have required way too much effort & resources is definitely remarkable. Being present on the Web via their websites has become a cornerstone for businesses to create brand awareness, showcase their products & service and also for selling their offerings directly online. And with each passing day, people are beginning to rely more and more on this virtual presence of brands and are increasingly interacting with them.
The cyber threat landscape changes daily. These days, it’s the real people that are launching spam attacks and other malicious activities against networks. Traditional security measures that have previously been effective against various forms of attack are no longer adequate. With the growing number of sophisticated attacks, new security measures are needed.
