Whois Information of Websites on the Web

Every year, millions of organizations, individuals, governments, and businesses register new domain names or update existing ones. Each of them must provide essential information during registration. This information is what is popularly known as WHOIS data. WHOIS (pronounced as “who is”) database is a collection of information such as domain names, emails addresses, IP address, name, technical and administrative contacts, and other information that domain registrars make public when someone buys a domain name.

The domain registrars play an essential role in making sure that WHOIS data is accurate. Apart from providing this information during the registrations, they also maintain accuracy.
