Is there a place to look up the name of the former owner of a domain?
I would like to know who the owner is/was for an expiring domain. Or, possibly, the owner before that.
Sometimes, Alexa has it. But, it is rare.
I also know that WesternPub. (?) apparently offers a service. But, the service is part of a total package for lawyers.
And, occasionally, archives.org has some info.
So, does anyone have some suggestions for me?
Any help on using that - any search under "Domain Names" turns up nothing, whatever the domain I use?
Thomson & Thomson announced a "whowas" database based on archives of bulk whois data a while back. I have not used it, and do not know how complete it may be.
