Speedy Whois: Think Fast! Who Owns That Domain?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Speedy Whois is the fastest way to get all of the information you need about the owner of a particular website or domain name. The main landing page features a search box that allows you to enter the domain name you wish to inquire about (do not include “www”).

Through this process, you will be able to locate tons of information about the site you entered, including the first and last name of the owner, their email address, physical address and even their phone number. Additionally, you will be able to see when their ownership expired, where they registered their site and what their domain servers were.

The coolest thing about Speedy Whois is that you can find all of this information with one click, regardless of the size or scope of the website. You will be able to find all of the information listed above on sites like IMDB, Time Magazine and NBC. Unlike other sites that you may have tried, none of the entries you will search for using Speedy Whois will come up blank.

Speedy Whois Will Help You get the Domain of Your Choice

If you are currently in the process of creating a new website, and the domain name you want is already taken you now have another option that you did not have before. Thanks to Speedy Whois, you will be able to see who owns the name and when it expires. You will also able to contact the owner and ask them if they were willing to sell. Armed with info from Speedy Whois, you will know that they hadn’t been actively using the domain name for several years and you will know that a sale will be more likely because of this.

Sister Site for Webmasters

Speedy Whois also has a sister site just for webmasters. With it, you can create your own Whois website using open source software that is completely free. Written in PHP and distributable under the GNU General Public License, Speedy Whois for webmasters is simple to install and share. Speedy Whois allows you to modify the content, use it however you like, and distribute it to other users. The best part is that you can link back to Speedy Whois – or not. It’s completely up to you.

The Speedy Whois for webmasters site features step-by-step installation instructions, a detailed listen of the download contents and the direct contact information of the programmer who developed the site. Support is also available via links on the bottom of the main landing page. I found the installation process to be very user friendly and straightforward.

By using Speedy Whois for webmasters, you can create a site that is geared toward a particular industry, brand or type of website. For instance, you could create a Whois search site for Internet marketing companies or for gardening websites. While Whois has the power and interface to complete a totally comprehensive search of all web domains, creating multiple sites for specific search purposes will help drive particular types of traffic to your site, leading to more lucrative advertising opportunities. It’s also helpful to see whom the big companies are using for their domain manager.
