Unless one of the Freelancer community knows different, there doesn't seem to be a way of querying the AU TLD whois records for the creation date of Australian domain names, even with DIG or nay other commandline tools. My imperfect solution is to harvest the earliest Wayback archive entry .
Image 1 shows the two data elements I need to extract from the zonefile csv I have : (1) the domain name (2) the date the domain name was first archived in Wayback.
Using a script I found in the Wayback APIs I have built a [clunky] batch script [[url removed, login to view], attached] that captures data into a series of files that I batch rename to a csv [[url removed, login to view] example attached].
Each capture from [url removed, login to view] produces a file with the oldest archive date on line 1. The domain name is obvious from each line, the date is in the YYYY:MM:DD:HH:MM:SS format.
It will need a chunk of regex written into the script to filter off the first line of each successful data capture, clean up time data element to readable format (eg 19981202014938 becomes 02/12/1998) and appends the domain name and date to an external csv file.
Some of the domains have no entry in Wayback but the script will still need to write the URL to the csv with a 'nul' value as the date element. so I can see which have no Wayback records.
The script will preferably draw the urls from an external text file.
The successful bid can use the URLs listed in the '[url removed, login to view]' file attached as a test list for the script. I dont need the scrape, just the script (there are 2.1 million domain names to query).
Any other questions, DM me.
Autobids will be deleted if the proposal is not read, and acknowledged within 12 hours...
