Tracking Whois Searches to Decide Domain Renewals

I agree that WHOIS lookup data is very helpful. However, personally I have never found the Godaddy whois data to be that useful. Epik does it a little differently, providing the detailed log by IP address of the WHOIS visitors for domains registered at Epik. In the control panel, the whois count is color coded green, orange and red to provide a visual indication of when a WHOIS IP is repeatedly being used to look up the WHOIS, providing an indication of a motivated prospect that may be actively watching. I believe Epik is the only one with such a tool. You can also export the data via CSV export from the Domain Manager along with stats for revenue, visits, etc. Worth a look.
