Whois service for .bit

Post by virus_net » Thu Aug 31, 2017 9:26 am

We didn`t find WHOIS service for .bit, so we create it.
Meet whois.bitname.ru :)

Example:

Code: Select all

# whois -h whois.bitname.ru nf.bit
OR

Code: Select all

# whois -h whois.bitname.ru nf
% This is the Namecoin blockchain query service version 0.0.1

% Information related to nf.bit

domain: nf.bit
name: d/nf
status: registered
expires in: 32678 blocks
txid: 4c055dfc908af606c5616e2b5aaa1fadadf72d35982044ed4ec625324a009879
address: NFMnokoEayFN9iRJqMEttXTCL5Sxswprds
height: 355024

% This query was served in 0.007 sec
Any comments or/and suggestions are welcome.

P.S. I know that I already posted this info before, but I thought that separate topic will be better.

Forgot to say before. Need to change whois info at wiki page:
https://wiki.namecoin.org/index.php?tit ... tion#Whois
Whois
A public Namecoin WHOIS server is available:

$ whois -h whois.namecoin.us example.bit

Code: Select all

# whois namecoin.us
...skiped...
Name Server:                                 BOB.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM
Name Server:                                 KARINA.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM
...skiped...

Code: Select all

# nslookup whois.namecoin.us BOB.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM
Server:         BOB.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM
Address:        173.245.59.104#53

*** [b]Can't find whois.namecoin.us[/b]: No answer
# nslookup whois.namecoin.us KARINA.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM
Server:         KARINA.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM
Address:        173.245.58.178#53

*** [b]Can't find whois.namecoin.us[/b]: No answer
Ok, maybe domain name changed ? Let`s try namecoin.org:

Code: Select all

# nslookup whois.namecoin.org
Server:         91.217.137.1
Address:        91.217.137.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
whois.namecoin.org      canonical name = namecoin.org.
Name:   namecoin.org
Address: 94.23.252.190
Name resolved - good, but:

Code: Select all

# whois -h whois.namecoin.org nf.bit
whois: connect(): Connection refused
Does anyone know who manage whois.namecoin.org ?
I think that whois service, which is announced in documentation, need to be fixed. It`s not good for new useres (who read doc`s) that it is not working.

Hmm, this looks pretty cool, thanks for your work on this. Is the implementation open-source? If so, we might link to it from the namecoin.org website.

Please disregard the inaccurate info on the wiki. We're aware that the wiki has a lot of junk content on it, and I'm planning to nuke the wiki as soon as the small amount of good content on the wiki has been transferred to the main namecoin.org website. (It seems that allowing unmoderated edits tends to attract low-quality content, especially in a cryptocurrency context.) Sorry for the confusion....

There is small php script that uses curl who made request to RPC to get data from blockchain. If script needed and you want, so we can post script on github. No problem with this. Post ?

Cool, thanks. Any chance you could add license information so that people know what terms they can use it under?
