What is Whois?

Per ICANN regulations, Whois databases store contact info for the owners of all registered domains.
Name, address, phone number and email address are all listed.
Whois also contains domain availability status, registration/expiration dates and related info.
Most domain registrars (Kenya Website Experts, for example) offer Whois Lookup options.
Legally, anyone who performs a Whois search can view the stored information.
If that makes you stop and wonder about the security of your own private information,
Please consider Whois privacy protection service.
