Test the Whois and DAS services


Draupne Whois test service

The Draupne Whois test service is available at:

Host: whois.test.norid.no
Port: 43

Example of use, given you have a whois client installed:
  'whois -h whois.test.norid.no draupne.no' (will dump any registered delegation data for the domain 'draupne.no')

Special IDN domain request, you need to indicate UTF-8 character set:
  'whois -h whois.test.norid.no -- -c utf-8 ole-žóòôöšŧüžon-æøå.no' (will dump any registered delegation data for the domain 'ole-žóòôöšŧüžon-æøå.no')

Draupne DAS test service

The Draupne DAS (finger) test service is available at:

Host: finger.test.norid.no
Port: 79

Example of use, given you have a finger client installed:
  'finger domain.no@finger.test.norid.no' (will state whether the domain 'domain.no' is registered or not.)

Same example, now using a whois client that connects to port 79 instead:
  'whois -p 79 -h finger.test.norid.no domain.no'

Special IDN domain request, you need to use the Whois UTF-8 syntax to indicate UTF-8 character set:
   'whois -p 79 -h whois.test.norid.no -- -c utf-8 ole-žóòôöšŧüžon-æøå.no' (will state whether the domain 'ole-žóòôöšŧüžon-æøå.no' is registered or not.)

A web-proxy service towards the Whois/DAS is available at:
