Most domain registration sites maintain a whois database, but I generally use paylessdomains, enter the domain name you want to check into the online form, some “whois” Search forms make you enter a code contained in an on-screen graphic.

Welcome to the Web 3.0

Being able to reliably mine the Internet for meaningful information has so far been an elusive skill. While whole galaxies of data float in cyberspace, finding exactly what your business requires, quickly and reliably, has until very recently been difficult to achieve due to the incompatibility of many data formats. Improved access to the Internet’s fertile data fields promises exciting benefits for businesses. A small travel agent, for example, could draw upon a wider pool of online holiday prices, flight offers and hotels to offer customers better service. In finance – where a millisecond’s difference can win or lose you millions – fast, easy electronic access to wider information channels would give businesses a lucrative trading edge.

Bug hunting start-up: Pay up, or feel the pain

Vulnerability Discovery and Analysis (VDA) Labs, founded in April by Jared DeMott, notifies software vendors of security bugs found in their software, as do many other security researchers. But as part of VDA’s business model, vendors are asked to pay for the bugs it discovers, or its consulting services, otherwise VDA threatens to sell the bug to a third party or make the details of the security flaw public. DeMott, who has done work for the National Security Agency among other places, describes his business model as “edgy,” while other security researchers see it as more akin to “extortion.” The practice, in either case, veers from the more traditional ways bug hunters have worked with software vendors and security firms. Just two weeks ago, LinkedIn, the popular social-networking site, got a taste of VDA’s business practices, when the Michigan security company claimed it had found a critical security flaw in …
