.NAME Agreement Appendix 5
Whois Specifications
(15 August 2007)


Overview

The Whois service consists of two parts:

The Registry Whois system has been designed for data protection compliance, robustness, availability, and performance. Provisions for detection of abusive usage, like excessive numbers of queries from one source, have been taken into account, and other countermeasures against abuse, like throttling and filtering, will be activated if necessary.

The Registry Operator will in addition to the WHOIS service make available an email address to assist members of the Internet technical community if necessary

This Appendix is subject to change by agreement of Registry Operator and ICANN during the IETF standards process. Further, Registry Operator reserves the right to develop these services internally or outsource management of the facilities to an external contractor under terms that are consistent with the standards of the proposed service. The Whois service is described in more detail below.

I - Types of Whois Queries

Registry Operator will support queries for Summary, Standard, Detailed, or Extensive Whois data.

Summary and Standard Whois Data (No Password Required)

Summary and Standard Whois data is available to the general public at no cost. This data is useful for searches to check whether a .name domain already exists or whether there is a similar .name domain in existence.

Summary Whois queries provide very limited information, such as whether a domain name exists and its registration status.

Standard Whois queries about domain-name registrations will provide more information, including: registrar ID, registrant ID, admin ID, technical ID, billing ID, Nameserver ID, Creation Date, and Expiration Date. No personally identifiable data relating to the registrant is available from this query.

Registry Operator reserves the right to revoke access for any requestor found to be using the Summary or Standard Whois data for marketing purposes, spamming, or other improper or unlawful purposes.

For the fields contained in returned Summary or Standard Whois results, and an example of a returned record, please see the output specification and examples below.

Detailed and Extensive Whois Data (Password Protected)

Queries for Detailed or Extensive Whois data require a password. Each query type has its own requirements for password distribution, described in detail below.

Detailed Whois Data

To receive a password for the Detailed Whois data a requestor must complete the online application available at http://whois.nic.name. The application process is open to the general public. Passwords will be issued to requestors by e-mail or fax. To acquire a password, users must agree (via a click through license) not to use the data for marketing purposes, spamming, or other improper or unlawful purposes.

Upon completing an application for Detailed Whois searches, an applicant will receive five passwords, each of which is effective for one Detailed Whois search only. A fee of US$2 may be charged for the five passwords. Registry Operator may, in its discretion, not charge the US$2 fee and require requestors instead to authenticate themselves using a credit card or other personally identifiable information. Passwords obtained through the interface at http://whois.nic.name for Detailed Whois searches are valid for 24 hours and may be used using either the web-based or port 43 Whois interface.

Registry Operator reserves the right to revoke the password of any requestor found to have provided and failed to correct materially inaccurate contact information or to be using the Detailed Whois data in a manner inconsistent with terms and conditions set forth in the Detailed query application and agreement.

Detailed Whois queries will return more extensive contact information (not including e-mail addresses or phone and fax numbers) about registrants. Administrative, technical, or billing contacts that are the same as the registrant contact will not be separately displayed. For the fields contained in a returned Detailed Whois Results page and an example of a returned record, please see the output specification and examples below.

Extensive or Detailed Whois Data

To receive a persistent password and continuous, free access to the Extensive Whois data, a requestor must enter into a written contract with Registry Operator. In initial implementation, requestors will download, execute, and mail the contract to Registry Operator, who will then e-mail or fax passwords. The contract will be substantially in the form of the Application and Agreement - .name WHOIS Extensive Search Database attached as Exhibit A to this Appendix.

Registry Operator may, in its discretion, modify the manner in which Extensive Whois passwords are obtained in either or both of the following ways:

In accepting the Extensive Agreement, a requestor is required to represent that the password will be used only for:

Further, in accepting the Extensive Agreement, or accessing the Detailed Whois, a requestor will also be required to represent that:

Registry Operator reserves the right to revoke the password of any requestor found to have provided and failed to correct materially inaccurate contact information or to be using the Extensive Whois data in a manner inconsistent with terms and conditions set forth in the Extensive Agreement. In the case of institutional or organizational Users, Registry Operator will attempt to resolve abuses by Authorized Individual Users without terminating the User's access for legitimate purposes. Further, Registry Operator may modify the Extensive Agreement to accommodate the procurement and contracting constraints under which governmental requestors may be required by law or regulation to operate.

Passwords will be issued to requestors by e-mail or fax. Passwords for the Extensive Whois data may be changed by the Registry Operator on a bi-monthly basis via e-mail to the address set forth in the Extensive Agreement. Passwords for the Extensive Whois data will be renewable annually upon re-certification by password holder.

Extensive Whois queries will return more extensive contact information than Detailed Whois queries. Information about e-mail forwarding registrations may be obtained only through Extensive Whois queries. For the fields contained in a returned Extensive Whois Results page, and an example of a returned record, please see the output specification and examples below.

II - Whois Service Access Methods

Registry Operator will provide Whois data through an interactive web page and a port 43 Whois service. Summary, Standard, or Detailed Whois queries may be made through either access method with the same output formats, described below. Extensive queries can only be made through the web interface.

Web Access

Web-based queries can be made through a Whois interface on the http://whois.nic.name website.

Port 43 Access

Registry Operator will also provide an RFC 3912-compliant Whois service via port 43 to whois.nic.name.

III - Whois Service Features

No Warranties by Registry Operator

The passwords and data are provided by Registry Operator "as-is." The data is provided without any representations or warranties as to its accuracy and/or completeness. Registry Operator disclaims all warranties with respect to the password and data, either express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement of third-party rights. In jurisdictions that do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, the above limitations or exclusions will not apply.

Error Message

The response to any request may be an error message or a successful query. If an error occurs, the service uses different error messages, depending on the severity and cause of the error.

Minimum Data Update Frequency

Under normal operations the Registry Operator shall make reasonable efforts to continuously update the data as requests are handled, in a matter of seconds or minutes. The Registry Operator shall ensure that records in the Whois server are updated no later than 24 hours after the registration or modification transaction with the registrar is completed.

IV - Whois Query and Output Formats

Query Format

Queries can be made for five object types (domain, contact, nameserver, registrar, and defensive registration) with four levels of detail (Summary, Standard, Detailed, or Extensive). E-mail forwarding searches can be conducted only at the Extensive level.

For web access, object types and query levels will be specified by controls on the form. For port 43 queries, the query syntax determines the object type and query level. Particular object types and query levels can be specified by including an optional keyword, an optional modifier, and/or an optional password in the query. (If no keyword, modifier or password are supplied, the default query will search only domain objects at the Summary level of detail.)

Searches for particular object types may be specified as follows:

Levels of detail may be specified by including an optional modifier and/or password to the query. The default query level is Summary. A "Standard" query level can be specified by including the "=" modifier. When a password is provided, the response will be returned in Detailed or Extensive format, depending on the manner in which the password was obtained.

Example queries appear below.

Sample Query
Explanation

john.smith.name
or
domain john.smith.name

or smith.name
or
domain smith.name

summary query for domain name

domain = john.smith.name

or

domain=smith.name

standard query for domain name

 

 

domain john.smith.name XyYpF4Ju8Ma5

or

domain smith.name XyYpF4Ju8Ma5

detailed query for domain name
nameserver ns.example.name summary query for nameserver

Response Format

Each data object shall be represented as a set of key/value pairs, where each key runs from the start of the line, until the first colon (":"), and where any white space found immediately preceding the first colon shall not be counted as part of the key. All data excluding the first continuous sequence of white space following the first colon, up to but excluding the line feed should count as part of the value.

All Whois data will be in the ASCII character set, which has encoding compatible with UTF-8 for easy transition to including internationalized data, and as per the IETF's recommendations on i18n in Internet protocols. For fields where more than one value exists, multiple key/value pairs with the same key shall be allowed (for example to list multiple nameservers). The first key/value pair after a blank line should be considered the start of a new record, and should be considered as identifying that record, and is used to group data, such as hostnames and IP addresses, or a domain name and registrant information, together.

The following table specifies the data elements reported in response to various query types and levels:

If the data is not available, the key will not be displayed. The "flags" column applies to all output formats.
