SmartWhois is a useful network
information utility that allows you to find out all available
information about an IP address, host name, or domain, including
country, state or province, city, name of the network provider,
administrator, technical support, and abuse contact
Unlike standard Whois
utilities, SmartWhois can find the information about a computer
located in any part of the world, intelligently querying the right
database and delivering all the related records within a few
seconds. The program can retrieve information from more than 60
servers all over the world.
SmartWhois can save obtained
information to an archive file. Users can load this archive the
next time the program is launched and add more information to it.
This feature allows you to build and maintain your own database of
IP addresses and host names. The obtained records may also be saved
in one of the several formats: HTML, text, XML, and XLS. Another
useful feature in SmartWhois is the ability to load a list of IP
addresses or domain names as a text file and process it.
SmartWhois is capable of
caching query results, which reduces the time needed to query an
address; if the information is in the cache file it is immediately
displayed and no connections to the whois servers are
