Genealogy WHOIS

Genealogists need to trust the information that they discover online, and that is not always an easy task. To address this issue, Live Roots includes domain registration information in many of its listings to allow researchers to identify the owner of the domain should they need to contact them regarding information posted on the web site. In addition, links to information about the domain from trusted companies that follow web site activity are included. When available, a link to the privacy policy for the domain will be included as well.

 

About Live Roots WHOIS

The data in the Live Roots WHOIS database cache is provided to you by LiveRoots.com for information purposes only, that is, to assist you in obtaining information about or related to a domain name registration record. LiveRoots.com obtains this information from various registrars, makes it information available "as is," and does not guarantee its accuracy. This service is limited to genealogy-related domains, and is not intended as a general WHOIS service.

Domain names are often referred to simply as domains and domain name registrants are frequently referred to as domain owners, although domain name registration with a registrar does not confer any legal ownership of the name, only an exclusive right of use.

The following examples illustrate the difference between a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) and a domain name:

URL: http://www.example.com/index.html
Domain name: example.com

URL: http://www.example2.co.uk/index.html
Domain name: example2.co.uk
