Using the WHOIS domain lookup tool

This article will help you to run a WHOIS lookup from your hosting package

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.

Please note: this tool is not available on any Web Hosting plans purchased after July 2020 or Premium Hosting plans purchased after August 2020.
