How do you find out a domain's previous owner?

Domain Tools says they can provide me with the contact details of the previous owners of some domains I own. (I have questions about their linking practice!)

But Domain Tools say it will be around $500 to find out. Are there any other ways to find out who owned a domain before you?

Thanks
Mike

It might be cheaper to do the research yourself, instead of asking them to do it. (use their site tools yourself)

See what their membership costs for one month.

As a long shot, you could check the Wayback Machine.

>>(I have questions about their linking practice!)

maybe that's why they dumped the domains and you were able to get them.

even if you do find out who owned them, do you seriously think they'll be willing to help you?

Huh. Maybe I shouldn't even bother trying then? I suppose, not trying something is what has kept me successful all these years?

... oh, no ... wait ... ;)

sure i agree with you, in so far as nothing ventured, nothing gained.

it was just an observation... it would be interesting to know in the future if you do find them and they did help you.

Did you try whois or wayback machine to find the name of domain owner?

I have questions about their linking practice ... around $500


For that kind of money, consider subscribing to a good backlink research tool and research their linking practices that way.

The tool would be useful for other things after the present project. Much better value for the money, IMHO.
