Domain Expiration Check Shell Script

I've already written about a shell script to check / monitor domain renew / expiration date here. Now I’ve modified matt’s domain-check script to support additional C/TLDs .in, .biz, .org and .info domains. I've also added 5 seconds delay to avoid whois server rejecting query. This script checks to see if a domain has expired. It can be run in interactive and batch mode, and provides facilities to alarm if a domain is about to expire in advance.

Sample usage

Display expiration date and registrar for theos.in domain:
domain-check-2 -d {domain-name}

$ domain-check-2 -d theos.in
Output:

Domain                              Registrar         Status   Expires     Days Left
----------------------------------- ----------------- -------- ----------- ---------
theos.in                            et4India (R7-AFIN Valid    28-Oct-2009   799  

You can also get an email if theos.in going to expire in 30 days
$ domain-check-2 -a -d theos.in -q -x 30 -e vivek@nixcraft.com

However most killer feature is you can read list of domain names from a file such as mydomains.txt (list each domain on a new line):
$ domain-check-2 -a -f mydomains.txt -q -x 30 -e vivek@nixcraft.com
OR
$ domain-check-2 -f mydomains.txt

Output:

Domain                              Registrar         Status   Expires     Days Left
----------------------------------- ----------------- -------- ----------- ---------

    but… it doesnt work with things like .co.nz domains…

  • nixCraft August 22, 2007, 4:29 am

    Nate,

    You need to modify script to work with .co.nz. I’ve modified as per my requirements. Basically you need to know whois server name for all .nz domain and date format. Let me know those thing and I can tell you the rest

  • mali August 27, 2007, 7:19 am

    realy good works thanks a lot vivek

  • Mark September 4, 2007, 2:50 pm

    I’ve hacked the script to work somewhat with Nagios.
    Does anyone want it?

  • nixCraft September 4, 2007, 2:54 pm

    Sure post the script / url / link. If you don’t have a website just email me the script :)

  • James House September 6, 2007, 4:50 am

    This script works much better than some of the others on the net. Thanks!

  • kendall October 19, 2007, 7:17 pm

    I can’t get the script to work for me. I get the following error:
    -bash: domain-check: command not found

  • nixCraft October 19, 2007, 7:22 pm

    kendall,

    Did you renamed the script? Did you setup executable permission? Did you run script as:

    ./domain-check -d vivekgite.com
  • kendall October 19, 2007, 9:53 pm

    thank you for your quick responce. that fixed my problem. and the script works, but it does not flag .ca domains very well. it seems to skip a few such as beelineweb.ca

  • kendall October 19, 2007, 10:32 pm

    what I mean by skipped, is that is says unknown, but when I look it up manualy it showes that the domain is valid

  • kendall October 22, 2007, 5:30 pm

    are there any additions to the script that I can put in so it e-mails out when it finds an “unknown” domain?

  • Java tutorials November 23, 2007, 9:41 am

    if date format is that then script will not work

    Renewal-Date: 2008/11/20
    Date-Approved: 2006/11/20
    Date-Modified: 2007/10/21

    give falst output, how to overcome that.

  • bbobbo March 26, 2008, 6:01 pm

    i suggest you look at the perl NET::DRI package. it can be a bit of bear to install with all of its dependencies, but once you get it working, it’s quite nice. look at their example whois.pl script.

  • milan1980 April 28, 2008, 3:23 pm

    very nice script. I noticed u accidently hardcoded awk in the code instead of ${AWK} on the line that looks at “Domain Expiration Date”. You could add switches to display other info (i.e. owner, etc…) in case one would want a more detailed report. Either way, nice and easy to use! good job!

  • Tushar P.Ambekar June 28, 2008, 1:23 pm

    Very…Very Very nice script… but I want something more..I’m sure you can do it. The script should also show the nameservers update date..it’ll be a good idea..isn’t it?

    Regards,
    Tushar

  • Jonny July 2, 2008, 7:05 am

    Very nice script – please give me a link or email address to obtain the nagios version of it

  • m2ke July 18, 2008, 3:20 pm

    Very nice script. Is there already an extension to do “nameserver lookups”, means looking for each domain, what nameservers are registered? would be really nice since not all are so helpful and tell us that the domain is no longer on our nameserver…

  • Raju February 19, 2009, 9:57 am

    Its an awesome tool. I just checked one domain. yet to check using file. but so far it impressed me.

    thanks.

  • GP February 26, 2009, 9:11 am

    Great script, but it sends no email? what i`m doing wrong?

  • Neil McLeish May 13, 2009, 8:02 am

    Hi Vivek.
    I just wanted to say thank you for providing this script.
    It is an absolutely excellent time-saver for me and a great learning tool too!

    All the best,

    Neil.

  • Neil McLeish May 13, 2009, 9:22 am

    Hi again.
    Next question. :-) I am trying to mod it to look up .uk domains.
    The whois server is whois.nic.uk and the date is output as Renewal date: dd-Mmm-YYYY
    Unfortunately I am not up to speed with awk and have probably made a couple of other errors too.
    Are you able to assist please?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Neil.

  • nixCraft May 13, 2009, 10:16 am

    Neil,

    Okai, I’ve updated the script to support .uk 2nd level TLD. Try it out and let me know…

  • Smish May 14, 2009, 5:59 pm

    Brilliant script, thanks.
    Could anyone post their nagios version if they have it please. Many thanks!

Anyone more experienced that wants some cash to help me get this running email me at jgrimmond00@gmail.com.. thanks

  • cypher June 25, 2009, 7:22 pm

    Looks nice.

    Do you have to modify what register the script checks?

    I could not tell where the script is requesting the data from, can you please clarify?

    Thanks,
    Cypher

  • cypher June 25, 2009, 7:27 pm

    never mind i glanced over it:

    “whois.pir.org”
    “whois.registry.in”
    “whois.nic.uk”
    “whois.neulevel.biz”
    “whois.afilias.info”
    “whois.jprs.jp”

    • nixCraft June 25, 2009, 8:47 pm

      You can use -s option to set another whois server
      /script.name -d example.com -s whois.isp.com

  • Noah J. July 1, 2009, 3:18 pm

    For some reason this script will only output “UNKNOWN” to all fields when using a large list/batch mode. It seems that any more than 5 domains in a list cause this (at least for me). Any thoughts as to why this might be?

  • ZlayaZhaba October 1, 2009, 11:57 am

    Nice modification of original script, man, thanks.
    But looks like you forgot about variable MAIL ;)

  • Rik D October 30, 2009, 10:23 am

    Hello,
    I would like to check .NL domains ( Netherlands ) I tried to change Whois server into “whois.domain-registry.nl” but i get on every output “Unknown”
    Who can help me ?
    Thanks in advance
    Rik

  • ZlayaZhaba October 30, 2009, 11:19 am

    to: Rik D
    I would like to check .NL domains ( Netherlands ) I tried to change Whois server into “whois.domain-registry.nl” but i get on every output “Unknown”…
    Very funny zone!
    As i see in answer of whois it has only two fields:
    – Date registered:
    – Record last updated:
    And nothing like expiration date! Probably it must be calculated manually on base of last update?

  • Rik D October 30, 2009, 11:48 am

    Hello ZlayaZhaba,
    you are correct there is no expiration date, the registration in the Netherland is normaly one year. That would be Record last updatedpdated + 1 Year = expiration date.
    Can you help me ?
    Rik

    Merry Christmas :-)

  • Nicole Brustvergrößerung August 2, 2010, 3:16 am

    Very Nice Script,
    i will try it with .de domains.
    Thanks for good tutorial.

  • AJ August 20, 2010, 6:19 pm

    To add .ca domains:

      elif [ "${TLDTYPE}" == "ca" ];
        then
            REGISTRAR=`cat ${WHOIS_TMP} | ${AWK}  -F: '/Registrar:/ {getline; REGISTRAR=substr($2,14,17); print REGISTRAR }'`
    and then later when it needs the date:
        elif [ "${TLDTYPE}" == "ca" ]; # for .ca 2010/04/30
        then
                tdomdate=`cat ${WHOIS_TMP} | awk '/Renewal date/ { print $3 }'`
                tyear=`echo ${tdomdate} | cut -d'/' -f1`
                tmon=`echo ${tdomdate} | cut -d'/' -f2`
                   case ${tmon} in
                         1|01) tmonth=jan ;;
                         2|02) tmonth=feb ;;
                         3|03) tmonth=mar ;;
                         4|04) tmonth=apr ;;
                         5|05) tmonth=may ;;
                         6|06) tmonth=jun ;;
                         7|07) tmonth=jul ;;
                         8|08) tmonth=aug ;;
                         9|09) tmonth=sep ;;
                         10)tmonth=oct ;;
                         11) tmonth=nov ;;
                         12) tmonth=dec ;;
                          *) tmonth=0 ;;
                    esac
                tday=`echo ${tdomdate} | cut -d'/' -f3`
                DOMAINDATE=`echo $tday-$tmonth-$tyear`
    

    Edited by admin to add pre tags.

    • Rob October 20, 2011, 6:26 pm

      I tried adding the support for .ca domains but now I am getting all .ca domains being expired. Here is an example
      domain.ca Go Daddy Domains Expired -0- -2455855

      Cira has made some changes to their DNS records. Anyone wanting to check .ca domains will need to make the following changes.

      form:
      tdomdate=`cat ${WHOIS_TMP} | awk ‘/Renewal date/ { print $3 }’`

      to:
      tdomdate=`cat ${WHOIS_TMP} | awk ‘/Expiry date/ { print $3 }’`

  • Max August 30, 2010, 8:39 pm

    Hello,

    Can you please tell me what to do if I want to know *any* names from .IN domain expiration ? is there a way to do that ?

    Example: I don’t want to search for the name and put in the .txt file .. I want it do automatic list out any expiration domain from .IN .

  • Nathan August 26, 2011, 2:27 pm

    I was getting the following error while checking .uk domains:

    syntax error: invalid arithmetic operator

    Fixed it by adding the following line after the WHOIS command is run:

    dos2unix -q ${WHOIS_TMP}

  • Willem Kossen September 20, 2011, 3:58 pm

    Hi,
    I would appreciate if you could add support for .nl domains.

    In fact, wouldn’t it be easier to add a configuration file with country specific code so the script itself wouldn’t be so bulky? Or at least, put the code for each country together. That would make it a whole lot shorter without all the repeated ifs / elifs., just my two cents…

    I can simply add the section to add the dutch whois server, but the regular expression to make sense of the output is beyond me (i’m no scripting guru you know). I suppose this something like the next part would work

    elif [ “${TLDTYPE}” == “nl” ]; # Netherlands
    then
    ${WHOIS} -h “whois.domain-registry.nl” “${1}” > ${WHOIS_TMP}

    one problem is that the dutch whois won’t accept many request per IP so some error-handling would be needed…

    Thanks for providing a useful script!

    When the whois server does not return Expiration Date at all (as for certain .ro domains with “eternal” registration), the script still returns “Expired”, not “Unknown” as it would be expected.

  • Jim February 24, 2014, 4:09 pm

    I also noticed .org and .info domains were no longer working. The whois servers added an ID number that was showing up as the registrar, and changed the date format. This patch works to repair version 1.9 of check-domain-2.txt for .org and .info files.

    And here’s another, for .biz. All the math worked on this one, but the spacing of the whois output was leaving the registrar blank.

    This patch assumes a default domain-check-2.txt version 1.9, and patches the .org, .info, and .biz issues I’ve encountered.

  • zoran March 4, 2014, 10:37 pm

    hello,
    realy great work!
    do you have any update for .fr? i have around 300 domain to test so if you can help it will be great.
    Thx

  • Jim August 11, 2014, 8:37 pm

    Hello, everyone. I added checks for the .mobi and .us domains on top of the existing version 2 script, and named the new on version 2.1.

    To the people having problems running the script, there’s a variable for the program ‘cut’, but the variable was rarely called, usually when cut was called, it was just called as ‘cut’ itself, which doesn’t do you any favors if your cut program isn’t in a place the shell running this script has access to. I changed all calls to ‘cut’ to now call the variable ‘${CUT}’, and also created a variable for the program ‘tr’, which is necessary for the script to function. The new variable is ‘${TR}’, and can be adjusted as needed.

    Zoran, I saw your comment and checked the whois info for both yahoo.fr and google.fr – it seems the whois server for the .fr domains doesn’t print expiration data. I’d expect there is a workaround for that, but as I have no .fr domains to check I wasn’t willing to dig any deeper to find it.

    Here’s the patch to update domain-check-2.sh to version 2.1.

    Jim, is there any possibilities to add Russian(.ru, .su and etc.) domains?

  • Jim November 13, 2014, 9:40 pm

    Hello, again. I had some time today, so I added both the Russia and Soviet Union TLDs as requested, .ru and .su. The French TLD still doesn’t report expiration to me, which is very odd. I don’t know what that is about.

    The folks here at nixcraft haven’t posted my 2.1 version of the script yet, so this patch is to patch version 2.0 (available above) into version 2.2. If you already are running version 2.1, it would be easiest to download 2.0 again, and patch it to 2.2.

    ### Exit with a success indicator
