And how does the plugin (or spamcopuri) knows what to look up?

Does it use only the 2ndLD for gTLDs?

How does it work with ccTLDs?
There are countries that register the 2ndLD and others that register
the 3rdLD, if it receives: "spammer.com.es" will it query for com.es
or spammer.com.es?
and what if it gets "spammer.com.ar"?

FTR, Spain (.es) register the 2ndLD (com.es) and Argentina (.ar)
register the 3rdLD (spammer.com.ar)... and there are countries that do

How does the plugin work in these cases?
