WHOIS is an Internet protocol that is used to query databases for information about domains.
A WHOIS database is a publicly accessible database that stores information about domains, including the domain registrants and registrars, creation and expiration dates and name servers.
You can query a WHOIS database by performing a WHOIS lookup.
The information stored in a WHOIS database can be accessed by anyone who queries the database using the WHOIS protocol. This type of query is commonly referred to as a WHOIS lookup. A WHOIS lookup will return contact information for the registrar, registrant, admin and technical representatives.
You can perform a WHOIS lookup in Google Domains:
- Search for the domain.
If it is not available, you can perform a WHOIS lookup on the name.
- Click the WHOIS information button next to the domain name in the search results.
- The WHOIS lookup results will display in a moment.
