How To Perform Whois Search Query?

Whois Search

What is Whois?

Whois is a database which stores domain information such as Registrant’s contact information, Domain Registrar, registration and expiration date and nameservers.

Most of the time, the Registrant contact information like Name, Email address, Phone number and Address are masked due to privacy protection.


How To Perform Whois Search Query?

There are many websites where you can perform Whois search or Whois lookup. Few of those are through ICANN, Verisign, Whois.com, Whois.net and Who.is.

There are also registrar-specific Whois lookup tools like GoDaddy, Google Domains, Enom, Namecheap, 1&1, Network Solutions and more.

It’s really easy to use.

You only need to go to your preferred Whois lookup tool, then enter the domain name you wish to lookup.

Once you press enter or search, it will give you all the domain information you need.


I suggest to use the registrar-specific Whois lookup tool because it will give you more accurate information regarding the domain name you are looking for.
