Using the WHOIS domain lookup tool

This article applies to 123-reg Shared Hosting accounts.

The WHOIS database is a record domain names and their registrant information. It can be used to determine who owns the domain, where it was registered, and even can provide contact details of the owner. You can use a tool in your Hosting package to search the WHOIS database for a particular domain name. 

To perform a WHOIS on your domain, please do the following:


Login to your 123-reg control panel.


Scroll down to the web hosting section.


Select the relevant domain name from the drop down box and click on the Manage button.


Click on the WHOIS Domain option in the Website Help & Diagnostics section.


Enter the domain name that you wish to perform the WHOIS lookup on into the box and press the WHOIS Domain button.

The results will then be displayed on the page.
