How to Perform a WHOIS Lookup in All In One WP Security & Firewall
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.|
