Get Information on a Domain Name

I was curious as to how many yahoo.com variations were out there. I used the whois utility, which is an Internet user name directory service, to ascertain that information.

# whois yahoo.com

Whois Server Version 1.X

Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
