Frequently Asked Questions
What is a WHOIS domain lookup?
A WHOIS domain lookup is a way to find information about a specific domain name, including who owns it, what hosting company it is registered with, when it expires, and more.
What does the WHOIS database contain?
The WHOIS is a publicly available database that contains the contact information for all registered domain names. This information includes the registrant's name, address, email address, and phone number. Additionally, the WHOIS database includes the name of the domain's registrar, the domain creation and expiration dates, and the nameservers for the domain.
Is WHOIS database free to use?
Yes, but there are some restrictions. You shouldn't use the WHOIS database to collect public contact information for marketing or spam purposes or use any automated process to query the database in a high volume.
How to perform a WHOIS domain lookup?
You can use the tool on this page to query the WHOIS database. Enter a domain name in the field at the top of the page, click the search button and wait for the result. Sometimes it can take time to get the result, so please be patient.
What if the domain information is not correct?
If the domain belongs to you, you can update its information in the hosting provider's control panel. If you have updated the domain but still see the old information, please note that it usually takes 24-48 hours for the WHOIS database to reflect the updates.

Why are some of the WHOIS database fields hidden?
There are several reasons why data in the WHOIS database may be redacted. One reason is to protect the privacy of individuals who have provided their personal information to registrars. Another reason is to comply with applicable laws and regulations, such as the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
How not to miss the domain expiration date?
The best way is to turn on automatic domain renewal.
If your domain registrar doesn't support automatic renewal, you can set up a reminder in your calendar for a few weeks before the expiration date. This will give you plenty of time to renew the domain if needed.
If you have plenty of domain names, manually setting alerts in a calendar might be a burden. In that case, you can use Domain Watchman to monitor your domain names and alert you when a domain name is about to expire.
