What is the Whois database?
The Whois database is an online repository of information associated with registered domain names. It stores and publicly displays domain name information, such creation and expiration dates, the registrar of record, and its various contacts (registrant, billing, administrative, and technical).
When you register a domain name, we collect this information, per the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) regulations for domain name registrars. The information in the Whois database is available to anyone who does a Whois search for a particular domain name. You must enter valid information in your account. If you do not, you risk losing your domain name registration.
For information on keeping your contact information private, see Adding Private Registration to Your Domain Names.
For information about adding a Whois entry for your business, see Managing Your Business Registration Profile.
