Domain WhoIs info help required


#1

I just started using dreamhost to start a website, and I’m completely new to all this web stuff.

The problem I’m having is the information people get through whois searches. I updated my information through dreamhost consol twice a couple hours ago, and when I check it on http://www.whois.sc/ it is still not correct. Is this because it takes more than the around 18 hours I have waited, or because my information is not getting updated properly. Also, what is the correct way to update the information?

Thanks.

That is the way to update it. You may be getting a cached page/cached results, or it may just need more time.

Try using http://www.completewhois.com/cgi-bin/whois.cgi?query=yourdomain.com the next time whois.sc does not seem to be updating your info

Last time I changed my whois information, it took a couple of days before whois.sc updated their listing to reflect the new info.
