Domain WHOIS Script - v1 - [BOTS]

Platform:  mIRC
Published  Mar 11, 2012
Updated  Mar 11, 2012
This script simply allows you to WHOIS a domain via "@whois" in a channel, the whois results are then queried to the user who typed the command.

Current Features:
- Supports redirects to other WHOIS Servers.

- Create the file 'whois.ini' and paste the contents of into it.

Follow the requirements (above) and simply load the script and its ready to go!

CAUTION! - This script is VERY spammy due to WHOIS Server TOS' this cannot be directly helped and could encourage users to spam you or the IRCD to disconnect you.

Known Bugs:
- Can only whois one domain at a time you must wait till the domain has been whois'd before requesting another whois due to the laziness of variables.
- Some whois servers have to be queried differently to get the correct results so you could end up with completely different results than what you expected.
- If a domain does not exist nothing happens and the socket will most likely time out.

The TLD list was obtained from

Why not just filter out key information rather than sending the whole reply to the user, most of which is usually irrelevant information or formatting

Look's good, Will have to test it out when I can be bothered to load my mIRC bot up.. One suggestion would be to add Flood Protection to stop possible "spamming" of the trigger, Thus causing you to Disconnect.

Only a suggestion tho. ;)
