COMMONLY ASKED

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is Domain Whois?

Whois query allows you to retrieve various information about a domain and find answers to one of the most common questions: "Who owns the domain?". By performing a Whois query, you can access the following information:

  1. Domain owner information
  2. Domain registration date
  3. Domain update date
  4. Domain expiration date

How does a Whois query work?

A Whois query for a domain is performed by sending the request to the respective registry company through authorized IP addresses or to the database maintained by official registrars hosting the Whois server. These registrars have established dedicated servers with specific security measures and agreements to handle Whois queries.

What is hidden Whois record/information?

In some cases, the identity information of certain domains is hidden, which is known as domain Whois protection. To contact the owners, financial managers, or technical managers of domains with Whois protection, it is necessary to communicate with the proxy address that handles the confidentiality of Whois information. Under ICANN rules, every Whois protection service provider is obligated to forward any notifications received through the proxy to the actual owner of the domain whose identity is concealed. However, the accuracy and timeliness of the contact information to reach the real owner of such domain names is primarily the responsibility of the domain owner.

How accurate is Whois data?

ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) provides guidelines to maintain the accuracy of the WHOIS database. Domain registrars, including Atak Domain, are required to allow domain owners to review and update their WHOIS domain data annually. Failure to update this information or providing inaccurate data can result in the suspension or cancellation of domain names according to ICANN rules. In cases where internet users discover incomplete or inaccurate WHOIS domain search data, ICANN allows them to file complaints. Domain registrars must promptly rectify and verify the data in response to such complaints. Through this verification protocol, ICANN strives to achieve the highest level of data accuracy possible.

How can I update my Whois information?

To update your WHOIS contact information, you can access the Domain Manager in your Atak Domain account. The process is quick and straightforward, allowing you to update contact information individually or in bulk. Keeping your contact details up-to-date is important to comply with ICANN regulations and ensure that you receive WHOIS correspondence at the correct email address.

Why is Domain Privacy Important?

Activating Domain Privacy is crucial because without it, anyone performing a Whois query can access your personal information. This leaves you vulnerable to receiving unwanted emails, spam mail, and unsolicited SMS messages.

What Information is Displayed in a Whois Query?

When performing a Whois query, if your domain privacy is not activated, your information may be displayed. However, if your domain privacy is active, none of your information will be displayed. If your domain privacy is not active and you perform a Whois query, the following information may be displayed:

  1. Name and surname of the domain owner
  2. Address of the domain owner
  3. Email address of the domain owner
  4. Personal information such as the phone number of the domain owner

Is it Recommended to Hide Domain Whois Information?

The decision to hide your domain Whois information depends on your personal preference, but we strongly recommend doing so. Without Whois protection, all of your personal information including your name, surname, email, phone number, and more, can be viewed by anyone. This poses a significant risk to your data privacy. Additionally, it can result in receiving unwanted spam messages via email and phone, which can be quite bothersome.

What is RDAP (Registration Data Access Protocol)?

RDAP (Registration Data Access Protocol) is a protocol developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that enables users to access registration data for domains. It provides a standardized method for querying and retrieving registration information, offering a more advanced and structured alternative to the traditional Whois protocol.

Is Whois Information Stored in the ICANN Whois Database?

Yes, the Whois information for registered domain names is stored in the ICANN Whois database. This database contains the contact details and other relevant information of domain owners, such as their name, address, email, and phone number. However, it's important to note that certain domain privacy services may mask or hide this information to protect the privacy of the domain owners.

Is the Whois Lookup tool free?

Yes, our Whois Lookup tool is completely free to use. You can search for information about domain names without any cost. Additionally, there are no limitations on the number of searches you can perform, so you can use it as many times as you need. It's a convenient tool for finding out the ownership details of a website.

Why are some Whois query records hidden?

Some Whois query records are hidden for privacy and data protection reasons. Domain owners have the option to apply for Whois Privacy Protection, where the domain provider replaces their personal information with proxy server information. This helps to protect the domain owner's privacy and prevent their personal data from being publicly accessible. In addition, domain providers may also hide certain information in compliance with local data protection and privacy laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These laws aim to safeguard personal data and require domain providers to respect individuals' privacy rights.

Can I use the Whois Lookup tool to register a domain?

Yes, you can use the Whois Lookup tool to check the availability of a domain. The tool will provide you with information about the domain, including its registration status. If the domain is available for purchase, you can proceed to register it through a domain registrar or provider.
