Database

DataProvider.com transforms the internet into a structured database. Their crawlers are going from link to link to index all websites and collect data on over 280 million domains from 50 different countries each month.

Domaincrawler.com is a sales intelligence software that allows you to conduct target search of companies with a specific set of real-time data-points, including both firmographics, technographics, and buying signals. We collect data from more than 60 countries worldwide and now has over 400 million active domains in our database and 1.1 billion overall. As well as Dataprovider.com, we have historical and current data. However, if our competitor shows historical data for the last 5 years, we can present historical data since 2011 (WHOIS and DNS data).

Data points

Dataprovider.com summarises all the data collected in a platform and the outcomes of your searches can be then downloaded in .CSV format. The information you can get will include company information, contact details, eCommerce characteristics, hosting properties, and technical aspects.

Domaincrawler.com in its turn can add domain expiration dates, domain registration history and much more to this list. We also save website snapshots, an option that is not available with Dataprovider.com. Learn more about the data points delivered by domain Crawler here (link to a Data points page)
