Mike is offering up a free whois API written in PHP. Great tool for domain acquisition or link building!

Did you write that Mike? The code looks awfully tidy to be yours. :)

    LOL – spot on Sherlock ;-)

    The main part of it came from some big elephant piece of software I found a few months ago, then stripped out this core whois part, changed it around quite a bit and made it run independantly. So not mine at all :-D

    Here are the two WHOIS progs I have been using for a while.

    A very simple class to use to get WHOIS info.

    The OIC API is good, but still connects directly to the major WHOIS databases, so you can easily get an IP temporarily banned with any kind of automated process.
