What is WhoIs?

WhoIs is a tool that allows you to lookup the current owner of a domain name. It can not only tell you who is listed as the owner, but how long they have owned it and when it is expected to expire. It also provides information like where the domain name is hosted, who the current registrar is, and who are the domain’s registrant, administrative, and technical contacts. Certain Top Level Domains (TLDs) will show various details about a domain name’s owner. In the case of a privately owned domain, the WhoIs database contains the full name, address, telephone number, and email address of a privacy company instead of that of the "true owner".

Public WhoIs Listings

NameBright and other accredited ICANN registrars are required to make public certain information about a domain’s owner. This includes your name, address, phone number, email address, domain expiration date and configured nameservers associated with your domain.

Private WhoIs Listings

Many people and organizations don’t like the thought of their information being available to the public, especially through a simple online whois search. That is why NameBright offers affordable privacy protection, known as Private Whois. This Private Whois option helps protect your private information.

  • Whois Privacy hides the domain owners personal information from the public.
  • Whois Privacy helps you reduce the amount of SPAM you receive.

International rules require that every domain name includes valid contact information - known as Whois. When you register a domain, your name, email, and phone number is made publicly available within the Whois database. The Whois database provides the public with contact information for any domain. Often, spammers and hackers use Whois information to find more information about you. While many registrars charge a fee to make Whois information private, NameBright provides Whois privacy with every domain. Whois protection shields your Identity, protecting you from spammers. When you register your domains, look for the Whois privacy option in the cart. Or if you prefer you can keep your Whois information public.
