What is a WHOIS lookup?

A WHOIS lookup allows you to find out information about a domain name that is already registered.

WHOIS is a protocol used to find information about networks, domains and hosts. All domain names have a WHOIS record, which will usually provide the following details:

  • The domain's registrar of record.
  • Contact details for the domain's owner, as well as Administration, Billing and Technical contacts.
  • The expiry date of the domain.
  • The status of the domain.

This information can be useful if you wish to contact the owner of the domain you are interested in with an offer to purchase.
