I am trying to finding available domain names using excel. Please suggest me how to use whois. In my seo tools I am trying to use whois to targeting the domain names. Please send me the complete information about perform whois in excel.
How to perform whois in excel
To perform this function, Open a new Excel workbook. Download and add SEO Tools to your workbook. Then Create a header row with all TLDs and column with all domain name ideas For each cell use a formula for instance =IsDomainRegistered($A$2&B1). Try and Add some color coding, and you're that is the whole process.
You can also Have a look at IsDomainRegisteredExample.xls from this link Is Domain Registered Example
The Whois function retrieves Whois information for a given domain name.
The Whois servers used can be configured in SEO Tools. config.xml that is located in the directory where you unzipped SEO Tools. Is Domains Registered performs a Whois lookup and looks for certain keywords that indicates that a domain is available. If you get false positives for TLDs that I haven’t tested you need to modify the WhoIsNotFoundRegex attribute.
Hope this will be helpful
