How do I know what domain I am on?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

To determine what domain you are on, you can use the ICANN lookup tool. ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is responsible for managing and coordinating the Domain Name System (DNS) to ensure that every address is unique and can be accessed on the internet.

To find your domain host, follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to
Open your web browser and navigate to This website allows you to search for the domain information associated with your website.

Step 2: Enter your domain name
In the search field on the ICANN lookup page, enter your domain name. Make sure to input the full domain name, including the extension (e.g., .com, .org, .net).

Step 3: Click Lookup
After entering your domain name, click on the “Lookup” button. This will initiate the search process and retrieve the information associated with your domain.

Step 4: Scroll down to Registrar Information
On the results page, scroll down until you find the section labeled “Registrar Information.” This section provides details about your domain registrar, which is typically the same as your domain host.

Step 5: Identify your domain host
Within the Registrar Information section, look for the name of the registrar. The registrar is usually your domain host. It is important to note that different websites may have different registrars, so make sure to identify the one associated with your domain.

By following these steps, you can easily determine your domain host through the ICANN lookup tool. Remember that your domain host is the company or service that provides the server space and infrastructure for your website to be accessible on the internet.

If you are unsure about the technical aspects of domain hosting or need further assistance, it is recommended to reach out to your domain registrar or hosting provider for clarification and support.
