Whois - Definition

Whois is an Internet directory service used to look up names of people on a remote server. You can use whois through third-party utilities on Windows and Macintosh machines, and through the command-line interface in Unix. Most commonly, you use whois to look up domain ownerships and contact addresses. For example, whois would return our site's DNS and contact information. Most domain registrars such as Network Solutions provide a Web-based whois service to show the details of the domain's owner and other contacts for administrative and technical matters.
