Need to contact a domain registrar? Whois is the answer

Identifying and registering a compelling domain name is the first step in building a website. Simply put, your domain name is your online identity and it is the “name” that your target audience will use in order to access your website. Due to its apparent importance in the success of your overall internet marketing success, it is important that it’s compelling, very descriptive, short, and of course keyword-rich. But what happens if the domain name that you’re dying to have is already taken? With millions of websites in the World Wide Web today, this happens all to often. Does that mean that you should just let go of your perfect domain name? Well, Ignition Media can help you track down the owner of the domain name that you wish to have through ‘Whois’ and see if its for sale. This gives you at least that chance to get the domain name that could possibly the key for your website to succeed online.

What is ‘Whois’?

whois_logoWhois is basically a record listing service on the internet that you can use to identify the owner of the domain name that you wish to have providing you information on how you can contact them. Typically, Whois store information such as the name and contact data of the person or organization that first registered a particular domain name. It also includes the date when it was registered, the name servers, the expiration date, and the most recent update.

When our customers here at Ignition Media give us a list of domain names that they want to use, the first thing that we do is check to ensure that the domain name is still available to purchase. If it’s not, we run a Whois check to get the needed information and contact the owner to see if they’re interested in selling the domain name. Years of doing this have led us higher success rate in getting the domain name so if you find yourself in this situation, you can let us, the expert handle all the hard work.

However, if you decide to do it by yourself, I would recommend that you visit Whois website and just type in your desired domain name on the box placed prominently on the right side of the page. Once you press enter, the website will give you all the information you’re going to need related to the owner of the website including the name of the owner and the status of the domain name. If you’re trying to register Australian domain names, the best website to go to is Melbourne’s Whois checkup page.
