What is WHOIS?

WHOIS is a common service between registries (e.g. Nominet and AFNIC), and registrars (like OVHcloud). It enables users to search registry databases, and contains information on domain name owners, administrators and technical contacts.

As a registrar, OVHcloud has already had a personal information masking service for a long time, in compliance with all GDPR regulations.

When registering a domain name, you can only be contacted using a contact form to preserve your personal information.

How do I read WHOIS?

Information about a domain name is organised as a list. Simply browse this list to find the information you are looking for. For example, if you are looking for a domain name registrar, look for “Registrar URL:”. You can also check the domain expiry date by looking for: “Registry Expiry Date:”.
