Matt's Whois

MWhois is a highly configurable and feature-laden whois lookup script written in both PHP and Perl. It features whois querying, a domain name wizard for creating domain names from information provided, and a global domain name wizard to search through all domain types. All of MWhois was created using template files to make sure that the script integrates well with your Web site.

      Whois always reporting "Available" for .com, .net and .org
      Yes, unfortunately due to a problem with the primary whois server which I have been using (their whois database seems to have simply dissappeared), all com/net/org domains were reported to be available, this is of course wrong, but in the new version (0.4.2 @ present) I have changed the primary whois lookup server for these names and i'm no longer having any problems.
