What is WhoIs?

Whois is a public database that stores information about the owners of domain names.

Whois info includes the domain owner’s name, email, phone number, and address. As a registrar, we are required to maintain accurate information on all domains, but domain owners are not required to make that information public. Enter: Privacy Protection.

Privacy Protection ensures your information is not displayed to the public. Using Whois Privacy Protection replaces your private details with NameBright’s information.

Your upgrade grants you unlimited historical insight into how many people are trying to find out who owns your domain.

These upgraded reports will go back to the date you first registered your domain at NameBright. The most popular extensions are supported, but if you have domains with niche extensions, contact NameBright support to see if your extension supports "thin whois", which is required for Whois tracking.
