What is WHOIS?

WHOIS is a system for looking up information about domains. WHOIS will always show the following information:

  • The status of the domain
  • The creation date, expiration date, and the date the domain was last modified
  • The name servers

If one of our customers has opted out of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), or if a domain is with another registrar who does not offer GDPR protection, this additional information will be shown:

  • Contact information for the Registrant (Owner)
  • Contact information for the Administrative, Technical, and Billing Contacts
    Note: The Billing Contact is not currently shown in WHOIS for .COM, .NET, .ORG, .MOBI, and .ME domains.  The Administrative, Technical, and Billing are not currently shown in WHOIS for .UK domains.

You can look up information about domains on our WHOIS page.
