geektools.com whois proxy


geektools.com has setup a whois proxy that makes it easy to get good results from whois queries.  So if you want to find out who is responsible for a domain or ip address you can use this proxy.


To use the geektools proxy, use the following command:



whois -h geektools.com 1.2.3.4


Or you can create an alias like



alias gwhois="whois -h geektools.com"
