Whois Domain Lookup
Whois domain lookup tool
What exactly is a Whois domain lookup?
A Whois domain lookup allows you to determine who owns a domain name and how long it has been registered. All domain name registries keep a record of information about every domain name purchased through them, including who owns it and the date it was purchased, similar to how all houses are registered with a governing authority.
What information is contained in the Whois domain database?
The Whois database contains information such as the domain name's registration date, when it expires, ownership and contact information, nameserver information, the registrar from which the domain was purchased, and so on.
What exactly is a Whois IP lookup?
An IP address is a unique address assigned to a server on the internet. An IP address allows your computer to connect to a specific server on the internet in the same way that a phone number allows you to connect to a specific phone on the telecom network.
Domain names and IP addresses serve as the foundation for the entire internet.IP numbers are assigned to networking organisations, and governing bodies keep a record of each IP number and the organisation to which it has been assigned. A whois IP lookup enables you to track the aforementioned information for a domain.
How do I perform a Whois lookup?
In the search box above, enter the domain or IP address for which you want to perform a Whois lookup. We will search the appropriate database for a recent record.
How do I keep my Whois data up to date?
If you have purchased a domain, the information stored with your Domain registrar is what is transmitted to the Registry for the Whois database. Contact your Registrar to update the Whois contact information for each of your domains.
What steps can I take to protect my domain's privacy?
Some Registrars provide privacy protection services that allow their customers to mask their actual contact details in the Whois search result, preventing spammers and scammers from accessing their private contact information. To learn more about your options, contact your Registrar.
Why are some entries in my Whois Domain lookup hidden?
If the owner of a Domain name has used their Registrar's privacy protection services, some information may be hidden within the Whois lookup results. Furthermore, some Registries intentionally conceal some information in order to comply with local data privacy laws.
How do I change my Whois information if my information does not match the Whois results?
Registrars are expected to maintain the accuracy of the domain name owner's contact details in the Whois database, according to ICANN rules. Most Registrars rely on the information provided by the buyer when the Domain was registered.
If your information does not match the Whois results, you can change it by contacting your Registrar, who will be able to help you update your information. When this information is updated, the Whois record will be updated as well. It can take up to 24 hours for this change to be reflected in the Whois database.
