WHOIS Domain Lookup Tool

You can use our free Whois Domain Lookup tool to query information about a specific domain name. The information displayed in the Whois results are referred to as “whois info” and will include domain owner contact details, technical contact information, and the domain’s current name servers (DNS).

Most domain names will provide a feature called “private registration”. This domain feature protects the personal information of the domain owner from the public. If you need to contact a domain owner, most private domain registration services will provide you with an alternate contact email that will forward to the domain owner but mask the owners email address. All domain’s purchased through Backlight Hosting come with Free Basic Privacy protection to protect your personal information.

Use the form above to lookup the whois information of a domain name.
