WHOIS is a database that lists every registered domain name in the world. When a WHOIS query is submitted, it returns information such as who owns a domain name and their contact information. In some cases, additional information such as a domain name’s registration and renewal dates are included, as well as any technical and administrative contact details.
To find out who owns a domain name, all you have to do is type the domain on the search box above.
Every time a domain name is registered, registrars need to verify the identity of a domain’s owner or registrant. This information is important because any domain name disputes and technical issues will need to be resolved by the domain name owner.
Beyond this, WHOIS information is used by different parties in many different ways. In some cases, domain names may be put up for sale and having WHOIS information is a way to determine and generate leads in the sale of a domain name. WHOIS information can also be used by network administrators to combat spam, fraud, identify trademark infringement and track down registrants that may be engaged in damaging or illegal activities.
