For the IT crowd

Back in the day you entered a domain name and got back the info about the
owner; address, contact info etc.  Today you get either "for sale" or "not for
sale".  That would be Whois.com vs. Whois.net that actually gives you useful
information but no owner info.  When did that change?

Whois.com tells you that domain is already owned, But maybe can get it for you
for a price.  Whois.net (ICANN) actually gives you a lot of interesting information
albeit largely useless to me. 
Originally got this domain for use as a sandbox to learn HTML code. 
Recently saw the domain posted for sale, $2500....  I want my cut!

I did contact ICANN and they fixed it.

Sorry I can't be any help, just that the Who Is triggered a memory (some gray matter apparently still works). Kind of reminds me of the old Abbot & Costello skit about the baseball team. Who is on first, What is on second, I Don't Know is on third, Tomorrow is pitching, Today is catching, and so on Smile

I always used who.is for domain searches. I thought that was the official ICANN search.

I did a search here https://whois.icann.org
and was informed the servers had hit a limit
on traffic, try later. Or maybe I need to sign in
first. Apparently "whois" no longer exist, at
least not as the official source.

I just used and have always used for searches. Works fine for me.

I ran a check there on my domain name and a lot of the info is incorrect.
They got the original date right, when I established the name and the
license expiration date.
But the listed owner is wrong.

Did some additional research. Looks like ICANN changed their policy on information reporting requirements. Who is your domain registered with? I checked some of mine that are with godaddy and not much info provided unless you go to Whois.godaddy.com then all of the information shows. Not sure on others. My network solutions domains show up under who.is correctly.

My domain is with Network Solutions.
I think they either manage ICANN or
the other way around.
