WordPress WHOIS plugin v1.4
We are happy to announce the release of the WordPress WHOIS plugin v1.4. There are a number of additions, improvements and changes.
With the new TinyMCE button, the plugin allows you to insert a shortcode into any WordPress post or page to generate a WHOIS search form for your users to get information on domain names with different TLDs.
So what is a TLD?
A top-level domain (TLD) is one of the domains at the highest level in the hierarchical Domain Name System of the Internet. The top-level domain names are installed in the root zone of the name space.
For all domains in lower levels, it is the last part of the domain name, that is, the label that follows the last dot of a fully qualified domain name. For example, in the domain name www.example.com, the top-level domain is com, or COM, as domain names are not case-sensitive.
Management of most top-level domains is delegated to responsible organizations by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which operates the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) and is in charge of maintaining the DNS root zone.
Below are the main attractions/features for the WordPress WHOIS Plugin. These are not the only features but simply the highlighted ones. If you have any questions regarding other features not listed, please feel free to contact us.

We need showcase sites
As with all our other products on the Tribulant Software website, we’d like to display example/showcase sites on the WordPress WHOIS plugin product page but we haven’t received any submissions from customers/users yet.
If you are using either the free or paid (ad free) WHOIS plugin on your WordPress website and you’d like to share it with us so that it can be displayed here, we would appreciate your contribution! Not only will you gain traffic and exposure directly from our website but you also get a backlink from us which will improve your Google rankings.
Please consider it and send your submission through together with a URL to where your WHOIS form operates.
