What is the WHOIS lookup facility?

The WHOIS lookup facility is a protocol that allows users to access EURid's domain name database. Using the WHOIS lookup facility allows users to query a .eu domain name or its variants in other scripts in order to check its availability. If a domain name is registered, the web-based WHOIS will display the contact details of the domain name holder and other additional information about the registration. For details about the processing of personal data when using the web-based WHOIS, please consult our WHOIS Policy and the Privacy Policy.
