Domain name is unavailable


Recommended Posts


When I add some domain names I need to add the whois settings in whois.json.
But when i add some custom whois settings WHMCS still says that the domain is unavailable while it's available.

For example '.auto' - Whois settings: 

        "extensions": ".auto",
        "uri": "socket://whois.uniregistry.net",
        "available": "Available"


And when I do a domain search it still gives me maikelve.auto is unavailable.


Anyone an idea why this happens?

Where did you get that info from? I just looked it up via IANA

the address @ IANA is correct and will work (change it for mine if you like) - but all new gTLDs will (or should - there are exceptions!) use whois.nic.*TLD* as their whois server (often just redirecting back to the registrar)... then it's just a case of working out the correct availability string. :idea:
