    whois.sc

    how reliable is whois.sc ? ive been watching a domain name that will expire soon, and i checked the domain on namecheap.com and it said it was registered untill next year? so i went back to whois.sc and it still says it will expire soon?

    thanks, Jroy

    whois.sc has tens of millions of names to check, they do not update them everyday. When you query whois.sc it shows what is stored in their database, not a live whois record. When you query namecheap.com, they performed a live lookup.

    registry expire date is not like registrar expire date, coz expired domains gets 1 year addon until the registry request a DELETE for the domain it will go back to the real expire date.

    I also like FreeWho's Checker script. It is a great tool and helps keep track of expiry dates.
