What is WHOIS?

WHOIS is a way to determine who owns a specific website or domain name. It is like a phone book for websites, where you can find the contact information of the person or organization that owns the website. This information can help contact the website owner, find out a site’s registration date or if a website has expired, or if you want to see if a website is available to be registered. WHOIS is a way to get information about a domain name or website ownership and registration details.
