Lookup Ninja is the new name of the Web Stalker Club. 16/05/2021. Our new domain is lookup.ninja.
Now, I know this is a bit odd, but I really like looking up DNS and WHOIS information of domains.
I find it interesting to see which DNS providers, email hosts, domain registrars people use, and what year a domain was registered in.
who.is is actually a really nice tool. But it is slow. Super slow. And some of the website’s design just isn’t cracking, not to mention it’s filled with name.com ads.
dns-lookup.com is again nice, but lacks WHOIS tools.
Often, I’d lookup a domain’s WHOIS with my terminal, just hitting SUPER + T, then typing whois example.com – easy. Then either use the dig command or dns-lookup.com for DNS. Much faster than who.is.
But I’m not always on one of my Pop!_OS machines, often I find myself stuck on Windows, and I can’t just run a WHOIS or dig command from there.
Thus, I developed the Web Stalker Club. The Web Stalker Club allows you to speedily lookup WHOIS and DNS information.
It’s designed to be lightweight and optimised for my use – making it public wasn’t my first priority.
Anyway, take a look if you’d like, the site is at webstalker.club!
PS: I’m considering changing the name to something that sounds a little less creepy and illegal. If you have a recommendation, do email me or comment!
