In this section of the guide to the All In One WP Security & Firewal plugin, we will show you how to perform a WHOIS Lookup.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On the left-hand sidebar of the Dashboard navigate to WP Security -> WHOIS Lookup.


This option allows you to look up more detailed information about an IP address or domain name by querying the WHOIS API. For instance, a possible hacker from the same IP Address is constantly trying to login, you would enter the IP Address and perform a search here.

The options for this feature are shown below.

A. Enter IP Address or Domain Name: Enter an IP Address or Domain Name you would like to investigate.
B. Perform IP or Domain Lookup button When you click this button, the results will be displayed (see below) providing you details on the IP Address or Domain Name.
