Active Whois Browser screenshotActiveWhois is a simple network utility that can help you find any information about an Internet domain or about the owner of an IP address. The application enables you to easily determine the owner's personal and postal address, the country, or the user domains and IP address. Moreover, the program lets you explore DNS aliases while displaying information about the domain and IP address simultaneously.

ActiveWhois does not require a high level of computer experience or special skills to find the desired information. The program's unique features allow you to easily view domain databases just like browsing the web.

By using ActiveWhois you will be able to inspect any website and determine ownership data with only a few mouse clicks. The program provides information about more than 190 distinct WHOIS servers from all around the Globe and is capable to dynamically determine the right server by analyzing replies from other WHOIS servers. Due to its ability to offer direct links to the domain registrars for every country, Active Whois allows you to easily verify the status for the domains you want to register.

ActiveWhois can be used in offline mode, as well. The program saves to disk all you completed WHOIS requests, allowing you to easily retrieve the needed information even if your computer doesn't have an active Internet connection.

Active Whois is customizable and allows you to use themes for choosing the look you want for the user interface. You can also create your own theme. The program provides support for SOCKS5 proxy servers if your network is protected by a firewall. You can use this application to investigate the source of spam messages, hacker attacks, nicknames used for Messenger and IRC chat, suspicious websites, and many more.

ActiveWhois is also useful if you are involved in e-commerce activities, allowing you to fight against fraud more efficiently. The program lets you investigate any suspicious customers and avoid potential losses that may occur due to Internet fraud.
