How to Check if a Domain Name Was Suspended

Save

Domain names are subject to service agreements that include proper usage guidelines provided by the Registrar. If a Registrar suspects a domain owner to be in violation of the terms, it can suspend the account, making the domain and any Web pages associated with it inaccessible. This commonly happens if a Registrar receives numerous complaints that a domain name is the source of spam. Research the status of any Web domain by performing a WHOIS Internet search.

  • Visit www.freewho.com. The website is one of many that use the WHOIS domain name discovery tool, allowing you to find detailed public information connected to domain names.

  • Click on the "Status Check" tab option. This tab provides a customized view of a domain name's WHOIS data.

  • Enter the domain names you want to check. The status checker allows up to 50 domain names per search. Each domain name must be entered on a separate line.

  • Click "Check Domain." The Web page will reload and display a row for each domain you searched. Review the information in the "STATUS" column. If the domain is active, it reads, "OK." If the domain is suspended, it reads "SUSPENDED."
