Hi Francois, Thanks for that, but what about detagged domains? The domain exists, but doesn't have a registrar / DNS server associated with it. Is there any way to tell the difference between a domain not existing and simply being detagged, other than doing a WHOIS? And is that the only circumstance in which a domain wouldn't have DNS servers listed? TIA, Rob Ashburn. -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
