Whois is basically an enquiry and answer protocol that is used for searching .uk and other domain databases that have stored information about the availability of domain names. On the internet, all the domain names are registered with Domain Name Registrars. These registrars are entitled to register names for particular set of of domain extensions. You can use the WHOIS App to search multiple registry databases, to check availability..
There are three responses that you can get from a whois service as mentioned below:
- Domain Name Not Found (This suggests that the domain is yet to be registered and thus is available to register if you want to).
- Domain name is Already Registered
- Error Message (this message is generally flashed when the searches contain domain names with more than 256 characters, domain names with too few parts, disallowed characters, etc)

Cyber Compare compares features and prices of various digital services like Domain Registration, Cloud Storage and Hosting.
