which gives the complete information in browser.
Question is: IS there a way of using Curl to get this information from this cqcounter website?
If you bothered to read their website, they use random certificates to keep someone from hammering them with requests via automated tools.
If you want a script to do this, write one. Linux already HAS a whois tool that works just fine.
