How To Backup Whois Settings in Watch My Domains / Domain Punch Pro and other products


All our domain name portfolio management software products use the Windows registry to store the whois settings.

To backup the whois configuration used by Watch My Domains or Domain Punch Pro, use RegEdit and export the following key.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Softnik Technologies\Whois Setup v2

You can do this from command-line (Windows Key + R) using the following...

regedit /e "C:\Users\John\Documents\whoisbackup.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Softnik Technologies\Whois Setup v2"

The above will export the whois settings key branch to a file called whoisbackup.reg in the directory specified. Remember to specify the file path for the ".reg" file properly.

Save the .reg file and copy it to the new computer. Then double-click on it to import.
