    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.

    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.
