Herndon, VA (PRWEB) July 21, 2009
Network Solutions® pioneered the domain name registration service; now they are helping to take that service into the world of smart phones with a new, free WHOIS iPhone® app. The app developed by Network Solutions allows iPhone users to use the company's WHOIS database search tool from anywhere their iPhones receive service. The application will be particularly useful to Web designers, developers, and network engineers on the go.
Available now at the iTunes® store online, the WHOIS allows users to easily look up information on the domain or IP of their choice, finding all relevant information, including the WHOIS business listing.
"Network Solutions has been working with the WHOIS database since its inception," said Kamalesh Dwivedi, Network Solutions CIO. "The addition of this mobile capability follows the release of the WHOIS lookup mobile application for Google's Android operating system earlier this year. Extending this capability to the iPhone platform will benefit users in a major way."
"As more and more people begin connecting to the Web via mobile devices, applications like these will be tools needed by any small business owner with a Web presence. The WHOIS application validates domain and contact information and allows users to determine if desired domains are available for purchase. If other business information is listed by the domain holder, this WHOIS business listing will appear as well," Dwivedi added.
