Hi,

I have a small web design company and I'd really like to add a domain lookup facility to my site. Can anyone here tell me how to get started?

Many thanks

I recently did something similar using PHP, but it requires opening a socket connection to a whois server on port 43. You can probably find similar code on the big php tutorial sites.

Look at the jwhois package, install it, and then run it via exec()
