04.05.2015 – New Tool – DNS Propagation Checker
We are launching Global DNS Propagation Checker – a new tool in Online Domain Tools arsenal. It allows you to get information on which version of your DNS zone and DNS records is currently seen by DNS servers all over the world. You can thus watch how your DNS changes are propagated on the Internet and whether you can consider the world-wide propagation as completed.
Our DNS Propagation Checker queries more than 30 DNS servers on 5 continents and it also queries authoritative servers for the relevant DNS zone in order to reveal possible problems in configuration of these DNS servers.
Enjoy the new tool and make your online life easier with Online Domain Tools!

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.

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.
