Manually Editing Data in Domain Table

You can manually edit most of the columns in the domain table. This is useful when the data is not available in the whois records.

Use the application "Preferences" pane to enable manual editing. You can also decide if you want to 'write-protect' the domain records after it is manually edited. This is to prevent your manually edited data from being overwritten because of a whois lookup. If a domain record is 'write-protected', the application will not do whois lookups on that domain.

Write Protected Domains

If a domain has been manually edited, it will also be 'write-protected' (unless you have changed this in the "Preferences"). This will prevent future whois lookups on that domain. To enable whois lookups, use the "Enable Lookups" in context menu (right / ctrl click on the domain).
