WHOIS SOCKS Proxy Scraping Tool

ProxyRack WHOIS Tool is a multi-threaded, socks5 proxy supported NodeJS application that can be used to scrape WHOIS record data or check domain availability.


  • SOCKS proxy support with or without user credentials
  • Multi-threaded
  • NodeJS
  • Web UI and CLI
  • Optional: MongoDB to store results


ProxyRack WHOIS Tool requires node >=8.93
Quick node installation (multiple OS) https://github.com/creationix/nvm

Install the dependencies and devDependencies and start the web UI server.

$ git clone https://github.com/proxyrack/whois-proxy-scraping-tool.git
$ cd whois-proxy-scraping-tool
$ npm install
$ node index.js --mode server --port 8080 --web-port 8000

For CLI:

$ node index.js --mode file --input domains.txt --output result.txt --output-available available.txt --output-registered registered.txt


Proxies are stored in a JSON file called proxies.json

  "proxies": [
    "yourusername:[email protected]:222 socks5"

Example proxy included is from www.proxyrack.com service


You can modify your MongoDB settings here, proxies file path, results directories and set the number of concurrent threads you want to run

It is OK to completely ignore the MongoDB line here, just specify localhost even if you haven’t set up and installed it.

The software will still run and save results to disk.

'use strict';

const config = {
  db: {
    url: 'mongodb://localhost:27017',
    name: 'whois'
  proxies: {
    path: 'proxies.json'
  numThreads: 50,                        // number of threads per search
  outputDir: './results',
  outputUrl: '/results/'
