The ICANN registration data lookup tool gives you the ability to look up the current registration data for domain names and Internet number resources. The tool uses the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) which was created as a replacement of the WHOIS (port 43) protocol. RDAP was developed by the technical community in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a nonprofit public benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world. Want to learn more about ICANN's role?

As a result, ICANN contracted parties have, in some circumstances, changed how Registration Data is publicly displayed and processed.
