WHOIS stands for "Who is?" and is a database comprising contact information about each and every registered domain name owner, including name, email address, address, phone number and domain related information like domain registration date, domain expiration date, domain name servers, availability status and more information. It's like Google especially for domains.
You can find out details about any domain in the world by typing it in the box provided above.
Yes. Anyone is legally allowed to perform the Whois search and see the relevant information about that domain and its owner. The details that you provide while registering your domain are all visible to anyone who types in your domain name. In case, you wish to sell that domain of yours, it may be a boon for you but if your information gets in the hands of a cyber-criminal or a hacker, it may spell doom for you too.
If it concerns you about your security, you can learn more about the WhoisGuard privacy protection service offered by ZNetLive.
