If you're unfamiliar with WHOIS, it is a public database of information about domain holders that is provided by most top-level domains.
One way to get information from a whois database is to use a command-line tool such as
whois. Another way is to use a web site like whois.net or whois.domaintools.com.
Now you have another option with DNSimple's WHOIS lookup interface. You can go to https://dnsimple.com/whois to get started or you can go straight to a specific domain such as https://dnsimple.com/whois?id=google.com
Please note that this is a public service that we are providing to make it easy to see the WHOIS data for domains without using a command-line tool. Please do not use it for automated lookups driven by scripts or other software.
As always, please direct any questions to email@example.com. Thanks!
I break things so Simone continues to have plenty to do. I occasionally have useful ideas, like building a domain and DNS provider that doesn't suck.
We think domain management should be easy.
That's why we continue building DNSimple.

How We Work as a Remote Team
Inspired by a recent blog post from Travis CI, I'd like to share details about how DNSimple team members work together without offices.
In this post we share some tips and tools you can use to troubleshoot DNS issues on your own like a pro.
