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 real-knowledge.com 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.
