Getting WHOIS records

POST https://www.whoisxmlapi.com/BulkWhoisLookup/bulkServices/getRecords

Since processing all the input domains may take some time, you'll have to repeatedly query this resource until the returned recordsLeft field value is 0.

Set the maxRecords input parameter to 1 if you don't need to monitor each record's progress.

Otherwise, each element of the whoisRecords array contains the whoisRecordStatus field:

  • 0 - processed;
  • 1/2 - incomplete / missing data;
  • 3 - processing.

The domainStatus field contains the processing status of the record:

  • N - unavailable;
  • I - available.
