WhoisXML API Newly Registered Domains V2 (NRD2) Achieved Massive Coverage Growth

WhoisXMl API is proud to announce data quality improvements of the Newly Registered Domains V2 (NRD2) Data Feed, specifically an 89% increase in total coverage over the last 12 months. Moreover, the data feed recorded a 153.95% increase in activity for the top 10 country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs).

This achievement reflects our company’s commitment to delivering the most comprehensive and reliable domain data to individuals and organizations seeking a safer and more transparent Internet. The WhoisXML API research and development team continues to search for advanced techniques for monitoring domain registrations, expirations, and updates faster and more efficiently.

About Our NRD2 Data Feed

NRD2 Data Feed is an extensive repository of newly registered domains (NRDs) detected, aggregated, and made available for download daily. Across all TLD types, the records in our daily files now add up to an average of 250,000+ newly added domains and 340,000+ newly expired domains across 7,596+ gTLDs and ccTLDs.

Aside from the list of NRDs, users subscribed to the Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate plans will also have access to the new domains’ WHOIS data for deeper context, including:

  • Relevant domain dates (i.e., creation, expiration, update)
  • Name and WHOIS servers
  • Registrar information
  • Registrant information
  • Domain status
  • Administrative, billing, and technical contact details

Additionally, ccTLD data is available through our Newly Registered Domains V2 (NRD2) Enterprise and Ultimate packages.

NRD2 daily files are available in CSV or JSON format. You can check the documentation for more information, including a list of supported TLDs, average file sizes, and download options.

NRD2 Data Feed Empowers Critical Business Processes

The data feed provides valuable insights into domain registration data useful for:

  • Domain name filtering: Block access to suspicious domains potentially linked to phishing and other malicious activities.
  • Mapping cybercrime networks: Analyze the geographic distribution of suspicious domains to identify and track criminal activities.
  • Botnet monitoring: Track domain registrations for signs of botnet activity to disrupt command-and-control (C&C) server operations.
  • Enrich security platforms: NRD data can be integrated into security solutions to give them the capability to detect new domains that threat actors tend to weaponize.
  • Brand protection: Track domain ownership to identify potential legal or intellectual property issues. Brand managers can monitor new domains that closely resemble their company’s or other trademarked names.
  • Domain name valuation: Analyze registration trends per TLD and TLD type to estimate the value of specific domain names.
  • Targeted advertising: Tailor online advertising campaigns to specific countries and regions based on ccTLD data.
  • Economic analysis: Gain insights into economic growth and Internet penetration rates in different countries. For example, increases in domain registrations sporting a specific ccTLD may hint at new market trends.

WhoisXML API is committed to continuously improving the coverage and quality of NRD intelligence and related services as part of our mission to help make the Internet more secure.
