Understanding WHOIS

WHOIS contains information about the owner, adminstrator and billing responsible for any given domain. All domain authorities have their own WHOIS database and they might differ slightly.

The owner is often called the "registrant" and this is the person who owns the domain and should decide, what it is used for.

Administrative contact

The administrative contact is the person or company that manages the domain for the domain registrant. The administrative contact often is a webmaster, who manages the owners homepage and hosting.

Technical contact

The technical contact is responsible for the domain's DNS-servers.

Billing contact

The billing contact is the person or organization is the one who receives invoices for the renewal of the domain name. When the domain is registered through us, this would be Surftown.


In the DNS section of the WHOIS information you can see which DNS servers the domain points on. The DNS servers define, where the homepage and mail service is located.
