Updating Your WHOIS Information


A domain’s WHOIS record can include various types of information for the domains you own. When a WHOIS search is performed, you can discover when and by whom a specific domain was registered, the domain contact information, and whole lot more. If Rackspace is your domain’s registrar, you can manage your domain’s WHOIS information through the control panel; let's take a look at some steps to see how this is done: Note: The information you provide will be visible to anyone who searches the Internet for your domain’s WHOIS record.  

1. First thing you'll want to do is log into your control panel, mouse over the Go to section drop-down menu and select Domains.

2. In the Manage section, click the DNS Settings link.

3. Search the domain name for which you want to manage WHOIS information and click the Edit WHOIS link.
