05.04.2015 – Major Upgrade Finished
We have performed a major upgrade, which required stopping our services for about 2 hours. We apologize for any inconvenience. This upgrade fixed some important bugs we have revealed in our system during last weeks and thus it will help us operate more smoothly in the future.
We have also noticed that some users configured their blacklist monitors improperly. This is why we have removed some possibly confusing options from our interface and repaired the improperly configured monitors.
22.03.2015 – Low Balance and Subscription Expiration Alerts
We have implemented low wallet balance and subscription expiration alerts. These alerts are handy for our paying customers who will now be notified when their wallet balance is getting low, or when their subscription is about to expire. Logged in users may notice the new Balance Alerts item in the right side menu. This is where you can configure your alerts.
07.03.2015 – Two New Servers for Server Monitoring
We continue with improvements of our services. Today, we are putting two new servers to support our Server Monitoring service. Together with the new engine that we have migrate to just a couple of days ago, more servers simply means more resources, better quality of measurements, and even more reliability of the service.
Enjoy the new upgrade and make your online life easier with Online Domain Tools.
05.03.2015 – Parsed IP Whois DataWe have improved our Whois tool. Previously, we have parsed domain WHOIS records only. From now on, IP WHOIS records are also parsed and important information is being extracted, which allows easier automatic processing. This also improves our WHOIS API and the tool's exports.
24.02.2015 – New EngineWe have replaced our internal engine with a completely new engine that we have been testing during last couple of months. The release of the new engine required us to temporary disrupt our services. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused you, and we appreciate your understanding as we continue to improve our customer experience.
All Online Domain Tools users can now benefit from the new engine. The major benefit of the new engine is the ability to distribute tasks to more servers, which means more resources for our users and faster responses. This will also allow us to scale up easily as we get more and more users.
20.02.2015 – Bulk Whois API – Reliable Whois Data ProviderWe are launching bulk Whois API project intended for companies that need high volume of WHOIS requests for their business. Bulk Whois API provides both raw and parsed data in JSON format and allows easy integration of WHOIS data to clients' systems. BWA is simple, reliable, affordable, and you can try it for free.
09.02.2015 – How to Improve Your Mail Server's Deliverary RateAre you a mail server administrator who tries to figure out what to do to increase the delivery rate? Make sure you read our latest blog post on this topic – How to Setup Your Own Mail Server that Will Deliver. We describe various techniques that are necessary to have a solid delivery rate, such as SPF, DKIM, rDNS, blacklists, etc.
27.01.2015 – Blacklist Removal Instructions and Links
We have published a new article on our blog – How to Get Removed from Blacklists? It provides a guideline on how to proceed when your IP address is listed on a blacklist and you want to have it delisted. We have collected a list of removal links for each of 150+ active blacklists that we are aware of. Hopefully, this information can save you a couple of minutes during the initial phase of IP address removal process.
We are also providing these removal links in our blacklist related tools – Mail Blacklist Checker and Mail Blacklist Monitor. This means that when you check an IP address with these tools and find it blacklisted, you will be provided a quick link to the blacklist information/removal page.
Use Online Domain Tools and make your online life easier and happier!
18.01.2015 – Blacklist Monitoring Service
We are happy to release a brand new tool – Mail Server Blacklist Monitor. This tool is primarily intended for hosting companies, Internet service providers, university campuses, VPN services, and all other companies who manage many IP addresses and care about their reputation on the network. If you have thousands of IP addresses, this is a must-have service for you! However, the service is also perfectly usable for companies of all sizes and types that manage their own email servers and operate with only one or a couple of IP addresses.
Blacklist Monitor periodically checks your IP addresses against more than 150 DNSBL and RBL blacklists. With each monitor, you can specify, which events will trigger an alert and you can define, whether you want to receive email alerts, or HTTP(S) callback alerts, or both. You can also receive summary reports if you want.
When your IP address is blacklisted, you will probably like to have it cleaned. And we have made this as easy as possible for you. For each blacklist that supports delisting, we provide a link to the its delisting page, where you can request removal from the blacklist. If a blacklist does not provide this option, we give you a link to its information page, so that you can get more information about your IP's listing and act accordingly.
This delisting support was also added to our Mail Blacklist Checker, just to make your online life easier.
And finally, we should not forget to mention the unbeatable pricing of our blacklist monitoring service. You pay with Online Domain Tools credits for each execution of the blacklist monitor, so the final price of your monitoring depends on the monitoring frequency that you set. For example, you can set up daily monitoring of up to 3 IP addresses completely free of charge. More pricing examples can be found on the Blacklist Monitor page.
