Find Domain or IP Details

Learn who owns the domain name or IP address using our global search. Enter the domain name or IP address and you'll get key information, including ownership, creation, and domain expiration.

Check Domain Expiry

Knowing when the domain name expires is helpful. If you own the domain name, you can make sure you renew it before hand to continue keeping it.

Check Domain Availability

Use the WHOIS Lookup to see if the domain name is already registered or is it available. When the result is "No match" or "Not Available", you know it is available to buy!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who owns a domain name?

A domain name can be legally owned or held by any person, entity or organization, also known as domain registrant.

What is the WHOIS database?

The WHOIS domain database is a listing of all registered domains, and is regularly used for various legal purposes. Network administrators use the WHOIS lookup to identify and fix problems. For instance, WHOIS information can be used to check domain name availability, identify trademark infringement, and keep domain name registrants accountable.

WHOIS verification can even be utilized to combat spam or fraud, as administrators can track down registrants who post illegal content or participate in phishing scams. In addition, the agreements from the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) protects domain registrants by prohibiting the use of WHOIS listings for marketing or spam purposes, including high-volume, automated queries against a specific registrar or registry system (unless such queries are done with the intent to manage domain names).

How can I use the WHOIS Lookup Tool?

Using the Ipfy’s WHOIS lookup tool is easy. You can simply enter the domain name whose information you’d like to view into the search field on the WHOIS main page. You can retrieve key data about a domain in this way, including availability, domain owner lookup, and creation and expiration details. If you own multiple domains of your own, it can be helpful to download exportable lists from the tool in order to analyze large amounts of domains data.

How do I update my WHOIS information?

It’s easy to update your WHOIS contact information in the Domain Manager of your Ipfy account. It’s only takes a few simple steps, and you can update all your contacts at once, or just one at a time. It’s important to always keep your contact information up to date, both to comply with ICANN regulations and to make certain you’re receiving WHOIS correspondence at the correct email address.

Why’s it necessary to have a WHOIS database?

The ability to find domain info quickly and accurately is important for a couple main reasons:

1. A WHOIS check is essential for people in the business of buying and selling domains. These individuals (called “domainers”) need a method of communication for their transactions. A WHOIS search will provide one or more methods for reaching the current owner of a web address.

2. The WHOIS database is a way to maintain accountability for people who operate online. For example, if you felt someone was using your trademarks on their website, the WHOIS database provides a number of ways to resolve that dispute.

Who’s in charge of the WHOIS database?

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is in charge of all things related to a WHOIS lookup. The organization launched in 1998 because the internet had grown to a point where a formal organization was necessary to handle all the maintenance and procedures involved with keeping the world online.

As of 2016, ICANN operates the WHOIS check free of oversight by any country and today exists as nonprofit corporation based in Los Angeles. ICANN is managed by a 16-member board with representation from all over the world. ICANN also receives input from numerous internet-related organizations, such as communications providers.
