Try another valid IP.
Use the IP WHOIS Lookup tool to get as much information as possible about a given IP, fetched from the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) to which the IP address belongs.
Find the real owner of an IP. Get the contact information of the provided IP. Just do a quick lookup to find WHOIS info of an IP.
Perform the IP WHOIS Lookup to get the WHOIS information of an IP address. The IP WHOIS information contains
Globally, Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is responsible for managing and oversees the global IP address allocation. The standard organization is responsible for maintaining information like IP address, root zone management in DNS, ASNs allocation, and other Internet Protocol-related symbols and Internet numbers.
The IANA assigns ASNs to regional internet registries (RIRs). A regional internet registry (RIR) is an organization that manages the allocation and registration of Internet number resources (IP addresses & AS numbers) within a particular region of the world.
The RIR follows the regional rules and policies to delegate the internet resources to their customers, including the ISPs and end-user organizations.
Each IP address that surfaces on the global public internet is managed by one of the five RIRs operating within a particular region of the world. The RIRs and their administrative areas are as following
Each IP address that surfaces on the global public internet is associated with one of the RIRs mentioned above. And because of the RIR's policy, each IP address is again associated with a specific country or country's region.
For example, if an RIR assigns a block of IP addresses to one of the ISP in the United States, and the ISP assigns one of those IP addresses to a customer in Canada, the IP address's location will be reported being in United States.
For more accurate geolocation data, you may use the GeoIP tool.
The word WHOIS is usually pronounced as who is. However, it is not an acronym. It is short for "Who is responsible for this domain name?".
It's a response protocol used to query the databases containing the information of registered users of IP addresses. The same query protocol is used to query the databases containing the domain name information.
To perform the IP WHOIS Lookup to get the WHOIS info of an IP address. Perform the following steps.
Note: The WHOIS information provides the original organization or individual's name against which the IP is registered in the IP WHOIS Database. Mostly it is an internet service provider (ISP). However, it is nearly impossible to get the end-user information to whom the ISP assigns the IP.
