How to determine who registered a domain

Determining who registered a domain name can be quite complicated or simple. It all depends on the person who registered the domain. If the registrar signed up for a private domain registration, your domain name might be quite difficult to find, but if the registrar did not sign up for a private domain registration, your domain name would be easier to find.

Although the law says that you can’t use a fake address or phone number to register a domain name, but most people don’t want their information made available to the public. Most domain registrars offer a special service to people who don’t want to make their information available to the public. With this service, the registrar uses its information for the domain name. This is why if any domain name has this kind of registration, it will be quite difficult to find out who registered the domain.

If you used your information to register a domain, here are four ways to determine who registered a domain:

  1. Go to the InterNIC website and visit the Whois search section. Be sure you are on the correct site. There are so many sites with related names and offering similar service, but they are not like Whois.
  2. Go to the section that allows you to search for domain information
  3. Type the domain name you want to get information about. Be sure to select the “domain” radio button, and then click on “submit.”
  4. You will get results on the information you are searching for. The information might tell you who registered the domain or it might show you the registrar’s name.

If you didn’t use your information to register a domain name, here are also four ways to determine who registered a domain:

  1. Visit the registrar’s website. You can get the information you are searching for from most online search engines for domain information.
  2. Type your domain into the database search box. Before you type your domain in the database search box, be sure that you arrived at the correct Registrar’s information. The database might take you to the correct page, but it depends on the format of the website. Also, make sure you chose the right domain extension.
  3. Enter the CAPTCHA code. Most website prompts for a CAPTCHA code. A CAPTCHA code is usually a series of letters or numbers just to make sure that you are not a robot.
  4. Wait for while and you will get the information. You will either get the name of the person who registered the domain, or the name of a company that offers private domain registration.
