The domain name registration process has been engineered in a very transparent way. Everybody has open access to obtain information about domain name registrant and ownership of a domain by clicking on certain informative links. It also helps keep track of domain registration expiration and start dates.
"WHOIS" is the utility that is used to check or find out the information about a domain name. This gives not only the information of the registrant but also the administrative contact, billing contact, technical contact, domain expiration date and original registration date.

Why is Determining a Domain Name Registrant Important?
Determining a domain name registrant is important for many reasons:
- The lookup can verify that the registrant details of your personal domains are properly entered. If they are not, you may miss renewal notices, purchase offers, partnership requests and the like.
- If you are interested in making an offer on an already registered domain name, you can easily lookup contact information, such as the owner's name, mailing address, email address and telephone number.
- If you are trying to protect your personal information, a lookup can tell you if the privacy controls you've put in place are actually in effect.
