7 Uses of Whois Information <br>with our Whois Database Download

1. Perform Reverse Whois Searches

Using our software, you or your business can look up control and ownership of domain names using a telephone number, physical address or name. This whois information can be incredibly useful in securitizing your systems and preventing fraud. The format is simple and easy to integrate into your understanding of an actor.

2. Identify fraudulent entities

It helps to know who is attacking you when you re trying to protect yourself. Using the information gathered in the whois database search, you can do a simple search engine or social media search from that person. This gives you a better idea of who is trying to attack you.

3. Figure Out Which Websites Are Malicious

Records of domain ownership often help find out whether the domain is dangerous to you or your business. If the domain is linked to a place with a high incidence of cybercrime - such as China, Russia, or India, it is safe to assume that the site and user are malicious. A recent registration date can also be a bad sign.

People in the cybersecurity industry can take action to either shut down said malicious website or protect you from further harm.

4. With a Lawsuit

Because our Whois search and lookup tool let you know who may be stealing or manipulating your information, you can use that information to take legal action. A security professional can do investigative work that can lead to prosecution by an attorney.

Our whois database can be used to flag malicious and suspicious accounts, once you have done the search and gathered the information. Linking you attacker to a domain name or personage can work to your advantage for whatever step you take next.
