Transform Meta Info
|Display Name||To Email address [From whois info]|
|Short Description||This transform obtains whois information of the IP number, then parses it for email addresses.|
|Author||Roelof Temmingh (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
This transform performs a whois query on the supplied domain and parses the output for email addresses. The idea with the transform is to provide the email address of the owner of the domain. The whois information itself is stored as a property of the domain (DomainWhois). You should always manually inspect this data to give context to results - or see if the parsing of the email address failed. For more information about whois see the Wikipedia entry here 1 .
Typical Use Case
URL --> Domain ==> Email Address
==> To Email address [From whois info]
--> Related Transform
From our domain name "paterva.com" we can find the registered email address on the whois info. The whois info is parsed, and the email address automatically found. The full contents of the whois info is added as a property to the domain entity.
