There are several options available for this.
You can simply pull up your Terminal if you are on Linux or Mac OS (Applications ==> Utilities ==> Terminal) and type in:
$ whois $domainname
where $domainname represents domain and extension (e.g. .com, .net, etc.) that you want to gain information on.
If you are on Windows, follow these steps below to get this working if you often find yourself goggling this:
- Visit Microsoft's Windows Sysinternals and download the WHOIS script.
- Extract the archive into a folder somewhere on your computer.
- Open the WHOIS folder you extracted.
- Hold down Shift and right click an empty space in the folder.
- Select Open command window here.
- Type ‘whoiscl $domainname’ and hit Enter.
You can also use a tool from one of our partners: Verisign Whois to check which name-servers are authoritative to your domain.
You can also ask our support team to help figure out information about your DNS server.
