Why is ‘Whois’ important and who can use it?
The Whois database makes it easy to find a website owner. This may be useful if you need to contact the domain name holder, or if you’re a legal team wanting to clarify ownership for a trademark dispute. Domain buyers and sellers can also benefit by using Whois to view site ownership details fast, which helps the domain purchasing process go smoothly. If you’re interested in acquiring a domain and want to find out if it’s already been registered, you can use our Whois search tool to check its availability.
