The application allows you to find out the domain registrar, geographic location of the server by a Web site address, geographic location by IP address, IP address of a Web site, hostname from an IP address, DNS servers for a Web site, mail MX records for a Web site and hostmaster`s e-mail. WHOIS Tools contacts many online databases to find the information you need and if it finds anything relevant, you can see it on the screen.
