WHOIS is a database that stores contact information for domain names. This information includes the DNS details and name, address, phone number, and email address of the domain name owner.
Finding out your competitors’ website WHOis data can be beneficial for any business. A number of reasons can be highlighted for this:
👉 WHOis data can reveal the registrant of a website, which can be useful for identifying the company or individual behind a competitor’s website. This can provide valuable insights into their business operations, including their size and reach.
👉 WHOis data can provide contact information for a website’s registrant, which can be useful for reaching out to competitors for various reasons such as partnerships, or to resolve disputes or complaints.
👉 By analyzing your competitors’ WHOis data, you can learn about the services listed in the DNS including hosting, domains, and other aspects of their website which can help you to improve your own website.
You can also find out how old a domain is and when it is due to expire.
Overall, understanding your competitors’ website WHOis data can provide valuable insights into their business strategies and operations, DNS details and help you make better-informed decisions.
