When a host/domain name is submitted, this translator first finds the respective IP address, and possibly some related addresses and all the available aliases. Then the translator finds the official host/domain names for each of the entered or obtained addresses and further existing aliases. In the end, if the Whois YES button above is checked (or the -w flag specified at the command prompt), locally installed BW whois is called for all host/domain names found (or entered). If it fails to find anything, try the links above.
Command line use (examples at the end of this page):
Usage: gh [-w] host/domain_name gh [-w] IP_address gh initial_IP_address number_of_IP_addresses -w : get also the whois information
Even 'org.org' is a valid domain name, and it has at least one alias (it used to have two).
Two different IP addresses can point to the same name.
There are various names ... Try to submit the IP block 'gh 126.96.36.199 7'.
