Noel is correct.
Even Google will ban IP addresses of those machines that will execute too
many searches in a short time. One answer is to use proxy servers, but that
is a more complex process.
One suggestion is to send an email to the support group for the "one domain"
and ask if there is a better way to get the info you want. You would have
to say you are willing to register and play by their rules, but this could
get all the data you want in 20-30 minutes. They might even allow you to
download one file from their FTP site.
If you are in the business of making more money for them, they will likely
help you. They may already have such a service.
