So dont want to waste more money on this. will be better if its online based tool which gets list of domains and give me link to download excel list of Domain,Name and email address

    i will be happy if someone who have license of a whois extractor software to do it for me for Free/small price.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Having been through this myself (Multiple times), I can safely tell you this issue is not going to be programmatically accessing the data. That part is easy; In fact various API's exist to make it super simple.

    I originally tried to do it with scrapebox to, and on a smaller scale this will work. But you will need a METRIC ton of proxies to do it, and to be absolutely positive none of them fail. Otherwise you will not get the the data you need for all these domains.

    Another major issue you will run into is that there is NO standard format for the data stored in a whois query. Often times, scrapebox can not make heads or tails of it (Because instead of <"Name"> it might be called "<Personsname>" or any variation there of.

    So problem 1 is parsing the data.


    The major problem is going to be hitting WHOIS query limitations though. There is no way around it for bulk queries, other than paying for access to that database. Even large registrars pay a pretty fee to hit it.

    I got around this by hitting 30 or 40 public WHOIS portals (Sites like Dynadot where you can run a manual query through their own interface).

    So thats problem #2.

    Best of luck to you, and sorry I cant help you out more. Even my own setup is flawed, and while it gets the job done about 80% of the time, even I ended up throwing my hands in the air and accepting something less than perfect.
