    Refering to Domains etc, what does WHOIS mean? I know what it does, but what does it stand for?

    Whois is a database which stores users information registered under different domain name and it also shows wide range of other information about the domain register.
    I usually do WHOIS search with the help of WhoisXY where various details like address,contact no. etc are provided
