What is WHOIS

When you register a domain name, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires your domain name registrar - - to submit your personal contact information to the WHOIS database.

Our WHOIS search can be used to access these records, providing information about the registrant, registrar and domain itself.

Privacy Protection

When registering a domain you expose your name, personal address, email & phone numbers to spammers, marketers and hackers. Our Privacy Protection hides your personal information in the public WHOIS directory, it prevents spammers and marketers from contacting you, and, it keeps domain hijackers at bay. You can read more about this on our Privacy Protection product page.


If you wish to contact a Registrant whose information is not displayed in WHOIS, you may use the online Contact form which will help you to send a message to a domain Registrant, Admin or Technical Contact while maintaining their anonymity.

Upon completing the form, your message will be forwarded to the Contact email address as provided by the Registrant. We cannot guarantee that messages will be received, read and/or responded to by the recipient.
