The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires accredited registrars (such as PlanetHoster or GoDaddy) to publish the registrant's contact information, domain creation and expiration dates and other information in the WHOIS listing as soon as a domain is registered.
The WHOIS database is a searchable list of every single domain currently registered in the world. To find out who owns a particular domain name, all you have to do is type it into the box above.
In order to protect your personal contact information, you can purchase WHOIS ID Protection either during your order for your domain name, or afterward in our members area. This will hide your personal information from spammers and other third parties.
Regardless of whether you choose WHOIS ID Protection, your site will be easy to find if you provide good content.
