What is WHOIS?

The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), based on the question/answer principle, is widely used for sending queries to DNS databases in order to identify the holder of the domain, the IP address, or other contact details.

The WHOIS protocol was originally designed for use with the command line, but today there are many tools that can be incorporated into the structure of web pages that allow finding information about the domain or the IP address by filling in a simple form. However, those tools are based on the functionality of the original WHOIS protocol and they have not superseded the previously used command-line tools, which are still extensively used by server administrators.

What does it mean to be registered in the .LY Domain Whois?

A searchable database maintained by registrars that contain information about networks, networking organizations, domain names, and the contacts associated with them for the .ly and ISO 3166 country code top-level domains. Also, the protocol, or set of rules, describes the application used to access the database.

Each registrar implements the Whois protocol and maintains a separate and distinct Whois database for its respective .ly domain name registrations.

Who’s behind .LY domains?

IANA is responsible for the operation and maintenance of a number of key aspects of the DNS, including the root zone, and the .intand .arpa domains.

The DNS Root Zone IANA is the global coordinator of the DNS root. The root is the upper-most part of the DNS hierarchy and involves delegating administrative responsibility of top-level domains, which are the last segment of a domain name, such as .ly. Part of this task includes evaluating requests to change the operators of country code domains, as well as day-to-day maintenance of the details of the existing operators.
