Post your question to a community of 468,140 developers. It's quick & easy.

Yet another, but this time a small WhoIS problem.

As a result from who is I am getting this:

Whois Server Version 1.3

Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net for detailed information.

Domain Name: BLABLABLA.COM
Registrar: TUCOWS, INC.
Whois Server: whois.opensrs.net
Referral URL: http://www.opensrs.org
Name Server: NS2.CANACA.NET
Name Server: NS.CANACA.NET
Status: ACTIVE
Updated Date: 22-dec-2003
Creation Date: 22-dec-2003
Expiration Date: 22-dec-2004

Last update of whois database: Sat, 3 Jan 2004 06:40:45

NOTICE: The expiration date displayed in this record is the date the registrar's sponsorship of the domain name registration in the registry is currently set to expire. This date does not necessarily reflect the expiration date of the domain name registrant's agreement with the
sponsoring registrar. Users may consult the sponsoring registrar's
Whois database to view the registrar's reported date of expiration
for this registration. TERMS OF USE: You are not authorized to access or query our Whois
database through the use of electronic processes that are high-volume and automated except as reasonably necessary to register
domain names or modify existing registrations; the Data in VeriSign
Global Registry Services' ("VeriSign") Whois database is provided by VeriSign for
information purposes only, and to assist persons in obtaining information about or related to a domain name registration record. VeriSign does not guarantee its accuracy. By submitting a Whois query, you agree to abide by the following terms of use: You agree that you may use this Data only for lawful purposes and that under no circumstances will you use this Data to: (1) allow, enable, or otherwise support the transmission of mass unsolicited, commercial advertising or solicitations via e-mail, telephone, or facsimile; or (2) enable high volume, automated, electronic processes that apply to VeriSign (or its computer systems). The compilation,
repackaging, dissemination or other use of this Data is expressly
prohibited without the prior written consent of VeriSign. You agree not to use electronic processes that are automated and high-volume to access or query the Whois database except as reasonably necessary to
register domain names or modify existing registrations. VeriSign reserves the right to restrict your access to the Whois database in its sole
discretion to ensure operational stability. VeriSign may restrict or
terminate your access to the Whois database for failure to abide by
these terms of use. VeriSign reserves the right to modify these terms
at any time.
The Registry database contains ONLY .COM, .NET, .EDU domains and
Registrars.

The previous information has been obtained either directly from the
registrant or a registrar of the domain name other than Network Solutions. Network Solutions, therefore, does not guarantee its accuracy or completeness.

As you see, only important information for me is this chunk:

Domain Name: BLABLABLA.COM
Registrar: TUCOWS, INC.

Referral URL: http://www.opensrs.org

Name Server: NS.CANACA.NET

Expiration Date: 22-dec-2004

There is no standard format for WHIOS queries. The result will be
formatted in human readable format, but it's not intended for
automatical processing. You can search for keywords in the result and
try to isolate the information.

You see, in this case I get always the same result, just middle part
os different.
And that middle part I want to extract.
Question is how.

Use the string's 'Substring' method or 'Strings.Mid'.
