    Using Whois To Identify Scam Websites

    (Page 1 of 7 )

    Who, exactly, stands behind that website on your screen? Does that web page really belong to the company it claims to represent?

    A handy little applet, known as a "Whois", can tell you who is behind a web page before you make that final click or download that free offer.

    What is a Whois?

    A Whois is a software utility, or applet, that looks up information about individual websites. A Whois will reveal whatever information is currently available for any website.

    A Whois will find the Domain Name and the IP Address so you will at least know the identity of the registered owner of the domain (website).

    The exception is when an owner of a website lists it as "private". In that case, the only information available is whether the website really exists.
