Delay Settings

Most WHOIS authorities will throttle (even block) your traffic if they deem that you make too many requests within 24 hours. It could be a disaster when you try to check a large number of domains at once that most likely happened in the TLDrop main task.

By applying delay per request, your chance to get blocked become slimmer. Even though this is not a final solution, this approach will be beneficial to work with.

You can still combine with another approach like applying proxies or increasing the cache age.
