How does Domain Monitoring work?

Domains can be a complex, we try to make this as simple to use for you.

Domains exist of several parts. There’s the WHOIS data, the subdomains and the records. A quick explanation of each below.


The WHOIS data contains the identifying information of the domain. This information includes things like the registrations status, registration and expiration dates, ownership information and some other technical details. This is the public data of the domain.

A lot of domain registrars provide most of this information, but some choose not to. We consider those Top Level Domains (TLDs) to be unsupported. This means we are unable to automatically obtain the WHOIS data.


Subdomains sit under domains and are in the format of “”. Like domains, these can hold their own set of domain records. Subdomains are generally not public unless advertised. That means that manual input of these is required in order to obtain their records. You can add subdomains on the domain details page.

You can find more information on how to manage subdomains on this article.

Domain Records

Records mostly are pointers. They point a computer in the right direction in order to connect to the correct websites and services. There are some other types available to provide additional domain information and verification data.
