    Question: How to get whois data...

    I know this is a strange request but...

    There are 3 domains I suspect are illegally selling drugs within the US "for research purposes". I'll be able to confirm that if I can drawn a line between three domains to a 4th domain.

    Can someone use do a little WHOIS kung-fu for me?

    Three domains I suspect are acting as a front:
    melanotanus.com
    melanotansuppply.com and
    melanotancanada.com

    The 4th domain that was recently fined and shut down by the FDA:
    melanocorp.com

    Anyone want to give this a crack and tell me if/how the first three domains are/might be connected to the fourth? I might be off my rocker but if I'm not, then it's more or less a matter of public safety.

    Thanks

    melanocorp was at mediatemple, melanotanus and melanotancanada are at hostpapa. Contact their abuse departments if you think they are doing something they shouldn't.

    whois.sc has some great tools.... for 75.95. : ) The info they provide is what I'm looking for - without the hefty price tag of course (hefty for me anyway).

    Adam why are you looking for information on these owners in the first place??? I can help you out if you like but i'm curous to know what your involvement with this is? Are you looking to "rat" on them or something?

    By the way melanotanCanada.com is a dead domain.

    I'm not entirely interested who the owner is to be honest, I just want to know if this company is trying to get around the FDA with technicalities especially since they are selling untested drugs to the public. If they are unrelated then so be it. But, I do know there is a community that relies on safe usage who are equally curious and will hold these guys accountable.

    Good Luck Adam. It seems like your intentions are great. It is always nice to know someone is looking out. Ive never heard about Melano or Melanato or what/ever : - ) You've enlightened at least 125 people that have viewed this thread.
