Domain look-up services

Nominet offers a range of domain look-up services such as the WHOIS, WHOIS2, Domain Availability Checker (DAC) and the Searchable Whois.

The WHOIS2 service enables WHOIS gateways/proxies to query the WHOIS database without being blocked for excessive use.  

The Domain Availability Checker (DAC) is available to Nominet registrars who are also members.  The service includes two DAC tools enabling you to make high volumes of queries about the availability of domain names.

The Searchable Whois allows you to search the register for domain names that are registered to a particular legal entity and/or of a similar name.

You can apply for new services through Online Services
