WHOIS is a registry that provides important ownership, administrative and registration information for every domain name and IP address on the internet.
This enables you to find out for example when a domain name was purchased, it’s status (whether it’s been registered), when it is due to renew as well as contact details for the organization and administrators of the domain name.
Typically checking WHOIS information for a domain involves using a WHOIS search engine and checking domains one at a time. But wouldn’t it be great if you could automate this and perform checks on 100’s of domains at a time as part of your workflow?
In this short tutorial we will show you how you can get WHOIS details for any website at scale using a simple Hexomatic workflow.

Or you can upload a CSV file featuring your list of domain names.
Step 3: Add the WHOIS automation to capture ownership and DNS details
Next, add the WHOIS automation to your workflow specifying the data input field you added previously.
Step 4: Run your workflow and grab a cup of coffee
Lastly you can run your workflow now or run on a schedule (for ex: daily or weekly to get fresh data).
Once your workflow has completed you will be able to download a CSV file containing all your domains and their WHOIS data fields.
