Domain Owner Inquiry - How to Find the Domain Owner?

Finding the owner of a website or domain is usually possible by using the WHOIS database or the services of domain registrars. I explain these two methods below:

WHOIS Database Enquiry

WHOIS is a database that provides information about the owners of internet resources such as internet domain names and IP addresses. You can follow the steps below to find the owner of a domain:

a. You can use a WHOIS query tool in your browser. Many WHOIS query tools are available online. For example, you can access these tools by searching with terms such as "whois lookup" or "domain owner lookup".

b. Enter the domain name you want to search using the relevant WHOIS query tool.

c. The WHOIS database will show you information such as the domain owner, registration date, contact details and more details.

d. If you need to contact the owner of the domain, you can do so using the contact details.

Contacting the Domain Registrar

Another method is to contact the registrar directly. If the domain owner purchased the domain through a registrar, you can obtain the owner's contact information by contacting this company. You can follow the steps below:

a. Find out which registrar manages the domain. This information can usually be obtained by a WHOIS query.

b. Go to the registrar's website and find contact details or options to contact customer service.

c. Follow the steps necessary to ask who owns the domain and request contact information. The registrar will provide you with this information in accordance with their privacy policy and legal regulations.

Keep in mind that some domain owners may keep their WHOIS data confidential, in which case it may be more difficult to contact them directly. However, you can still try the methods mentioned above to find the owner of the domain.
