What is WHOIS information ?




WHOIS is a searchable database maintained by registries and registrars that contains information about domain name registrations in the com, net, org, edu, and ISO 3166 country code top-level domains. Also, the protocol, or set of rules, that describes the application used to access the database.

Registrants involved in malfeasance will often provide false information for their listings on WHOIS. So will registrants concerned with privacy who do not wish to make their home addresses, telephone numbers, or email addresses public.
