With HotWhois, you can get IP Lookup information about IP addresses and domain names by sending queries to IP whois and domain whois servers. This IP tracking tool can reveal lots of valuable information, such as country, state, city, address, contact phone numbers and e-mail addresses of an IP provider. HotWhois will benefit anyone who is looking for a competent lookup tool. The program stands out for doing the most thorough search possible. The query mechanism resorts to a variety of Regional Internet Registries, to obtain IP Whois information about IP address. No IP address will be a mystery for you if you use HotWhois! Also the program works with 88 domain whois servers from all over the world and that covers 120 domain zones.
With HotWhois you can make whois queries even if the registrar, supporting a particular domain, doesn't have the whois server itself. Queries can go through the Web interface. Also, it is not a problem if a network is connected to the Web using SOCKS 4 or 5 proxy servers. They are supported, so the tool processes whois requests even with this kind of proxy. Thanks to the advanced query system, the identification of the name and version of the remote web server is almost guaranteed. And you can check host's accessibility using the ping feature. With HotWhois, you'll get the best lookup experience.
It integrates with Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher, turning a query into a matter of one click. Simply click the HotWhois button on the browsers' toolbar to find out everything about the address displayed in the IE address bar. As for the program's interface, it's intuitive and has multilingual support. You can choose from the following languages: English, French, German, Russian, Catalan, and Spanish. The information you collect with the help of HotWhois can be easily printed, saved into a formatted text file and copied to clipboard, so you can manage the lookup results right away.
