Kim, that is precicely what resellers need  - a facility that returns
unlimited availability results.

There is one provided by melbourne-IT but you need to have your reseller
username/password on a file online at your website. There are ways to make
it difficult to grab that file, but it still is a bit risky..

Resellers (and everyone) _should_ be restricted in the number of whois
queries. Rather, there should be a domain availability service that is
completely unrestricted (either via EPP, WHOIS, or some other protocol).
This is what most other countries do - it allows you tosee if a domain
is registered and nothing more. There is nothing else a reseller should
need to know. WHOIS should be for determining contact information only.
