Question

Any way to do a "reverse" whois look up?


Does anyone know how, or whether it's possible, to do a "reverse" whois lookup ?

By that I mean entering a full name, and it retrieves all domains associated to that name?

Thanks.

Sure, www.DomainTools.com has it. But, they'll charge you for it.

Oh, does Domain Tools have that feature too? I thought it's only the domain's history.

The reason I was looking for a way to do this is to look up my full name, to see what domains I have owned in the past. Because of DomainTools!

I recently found out that they keep past registration histories on file somehow and provide the history to users. It just stuck in my head and became a bit paranoid about it now - not knowing if my home address is out there or not.

My current domains use private registration, but I'm certain I haven't used private registrations in the past.

Before I thought after it expires or resold the registration is cleared. Apparently not.

Thank you, I found the feature on domain tool it's kinda hidden. But it's several hundred dollars. :\

I wish the historical domain feature was several hundred dollars too, I think it would have been safer.

Anyone know if I can opt myself out from DomainTools? Or limited view... anything.

It might be worth a shot to ask DomainTools.

But I think the Whois database is consider public domain material.

You know what they say - once it's on the Internet - it's on there forever.

You must have an ex-wife looking for you, lol.

Reverse Whois from Whois API

You can try Reverse Whois from http://www.whoisxmlapi.com/reverse-whois.php. It searches by registrant name, email, address, phone number, or any piece of text in a whois record. Much cheaper than domain tools, worked for me for the names I was searching for.
