As per ICANN regulations, when a domain is registered, registrants must provide registrars with up-to-date contact information. This information is displayed publicly in the Whois database, which acts like a giant address book that anyone can view.
Try our Whois domain tool now to find out if that domain you’ve had your eye on has already been taken. If it’s available, great! Register it today. If it’s already in use, why not make them an offer they can’t refuse?
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.
Do you want to know more about a domain and find out who owns it? Use our domain owner lookup tool by entering the URL into the search bar above.
Here you will find the answers to important questions like:
Discover further information on any domain, and find new opportunities for your personal or professional website.
If you’ve registered a domain and don’t want your personal contact information listed publicly, why not consider domain privacy protection?
Then, when someone searches for your web address on the Whois database, alternative contact information will be displayed instead of your personal information.
Here at Namecheap, we offer free Domain Privacy with every new registration and transfer.
Our domain privacy service provider does not require your personal information at any stage and any details you share with Namecheap will stay with us.
Plus, if you have privacy protection in place, it also limits the chance of marketing firms and online fraudsters from handling your contact information.
Don’t panic, all is not lost. If the domain you like is currently registered by someone else, you have the option to present an offer to the domain owner, without having to navigate to another page. Select ‘Make offer’ and start negotiating!
Alternatively, if it’s free to be registered you can select ‘Add to cart’ and make your purchase.
