All In One Security – WHOIS Lookup

Video Tutorial

Script & Screenshots

In this video I’m going to walk you through the All In One Security Who Is Lookup settings.

This is where you can run a WHOIS Lookup on a suspicious domain or IP address and get their full details.  This is not necessarily a security feature, but more of a way to monitor where your traffic is coming from.

Click on WP Security, then Who is Lookup.

There’s only one tab.  Here you can look up detailed information about an IP address or domain name by querying the WHOIS API. If you are receiving a lot of notices of failed logins, you can enter their IP address in this box and get some details about their location.  If your business only operates within the United States and someone from another country keeps trying to log into your website, it’s easy to determine they are a hacker.
I will enter an IP address that keeps logging into one of my websites.  Then click on the Perform IP or Domain Lookup button.

It will then display information about this IP address below the box.  As you can see here, this IP is from China.  Knowing this person is a hacker, I can now take this IP address and enter it in the Blacklist Manager to block them from having any access to my website.  I will show you how to do this in another video.

That’s it for this video.  I’ll see you in the next one.
