CentralNic operates a standard whois server that you can use to check the details of any domain name registered with us. You can use any standard whois client (including the UNIX terminal client) to query our whois server at whois.centralnic.com.
We provide a web interface to our whois system here. Simply enter your domain name in the text field below and press the 'Whois Lookup' button.
How to use the WHOIS
By default, any input entered will be assumed to be a domain name. Internationalised domains can be entered in 'U-label' format (ie café.uk.com) or 'A-label' format (ie xn--caf-dma.uk.com).
You can also query for other objects in the database as follows
- Prepend 'nameserver' to look up a nameserver, eg 'nameserver ns0.example.uk.com'
- Prepend 'contact' to look up a contact object, eg 'contact H12345'
- Prepend 'registrar' to look up a registrar, eg 'registrar CentralNic Ltd' or 'registrar H12345'
Reporting or correcting errors
If the issue is with a domain name that you've registered, please contact your registrar to correct the error, or log in to the Account Manager to update your account details.
