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 information.
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 required.
