    Question WHOIS Database Question [Important]...


    Does anyone know if there is a way to search the WHOIS database using an email address as a search parameter?

    For example, is there a way I could enter "[email protected]" into a WHOIS search and then have the results display all domains registered with "[email protected]"?

    Or is there a way to monitor when a specific email address is used to register a domain? For example, is there a service where I could be notified when the person "[email protected]" registers a new domain?

    I don't think, there's a service available for such a search.

    I dont know how they are doing it, but I've seen people who are able to detect when someone with a particular email registers a new domain.

    Anyone know how that is done?

    well maybe when someone registers a new domain to specific nameservers, but not email address.

    it was do-able when networksolutions was the only registrar, but now its almost impossible due each registrar has its own whois server.
