How To Check Where A Domain Name Is Registered. To check if a domain name is available just type it in GoDaddy s search bar and well tell you immediately if its already owned by someone else. When you enter a domain name into your web browser the browser simply uses that domain to locate its corresponding IP address and then shows you the website associated with it.
If its taken you can search for your domain name using our WHOIS Lookup. Rather than making people type in an IP address whenever they want to access a certain web page like 3897225253 websites are instead assigned easy-to-remember character strings called domains. Use our advanced domain name generator to get your ideal choice right away.
WHOIS domain lookups are much slower than DNS queries but provide more information about who registered the name.
Because there are delays in the actual registration of a domain name with the appropriate registry NTT America is not responsible if domain names requested by you are actually registered to third parties. Discover all domain extensions. Or try our Domain Broker Service where we can negotiate acquiring the domain from its current owner. If your domain is taken this means that it is either reserved by the Registry or registered by someone else.
