I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this post, if not, please move or delete. Thanks.
A new tool is now available. The Domain Mage Domain Name Lookup Tool (DMLookup), will allow you to do a simple Whois on domain names as well as retrieve link popularity and a view of the site. If the site is no longer available, it will attempt to research the site at archive.org and bring back a view of the old site.
This tool uses code from a automated tracking, domain grabbing system that we developed and we figured we'd release the lookup portion of the tool for anyone who might like it. The file can be found here:
The program is an executable only, there is no install.
If you have problems, questions or suggestions, we've created a forum specifically on our site for this application. As changes are made, we will update the original file location and post a note there.
So far I think the missing dll's might only be for 9x/nt40 machines, and I really don't know if this installer will allow it to run on those machines since I don't have a 9x/nt40 machine to test with. So, if it doesn't work on the older OS's, Sorry.
