A WHOIS search reveals details about a domain name, including who owns it, where it was registered, when it expires and which name servers are assigned to the domain. There are many software tools for performing a WHOIS search, and you can also search online. One good web site to try is whois.sc. To perform a WHOIS search on whois.sc:
- Go to http://whois.sc in your internet browser.
- Type the domain name you want to look up in the search box and press enter.
- Review the WHOIS information provided. The registrar and name servers are usually listed towards the bottom of the page.
Note: If whois.sc does not provide details about a domain name, it may be because the domain name is for sale and not currently registered.
