    //   lblDomainName.Text = Session["WhoIs"].ToString();
    string firstLevelbufData = null;
    // Stores the bufData extracted from the webclient
        // similarly we can select any server address for bufData mining
        string strURL = "" +  txtDomain.Text;
        WebClient web = new WebClient();
        // byte array to store the extracted bufData by webclient
        byte[] bufData = null;
        bufData = web.DownloadData(strURL);
        // got the bufData now convert it into string form
        firstLevelbufData = Encoding.Default.GetString(bufData);
    catch (System.Net.WebException ex)
        // this exception will be fired when the host name is not 
        //resolved or any other connection problem
        //txtResult.Text = ex.Message.ToString();//sasi
        lblresult.Text = ex.Message.ToString();
        // first and last are the regular expression string for

Implement this API, [^]. This works well for .in domains and there is no fee for 100 queries per day.

Just try the url

its giving the result as "Sorry, but our WHOIS does not support the top level domain name"
The site you are using do not support domain type.

So, you need to search for API, which support major domain types.

There is no error in code
