    I just checked one of my keeper domains on the baidu site and it apparently expired in 2018 ;)

    At least they redacted my personal details that were not hidden at the time.

    You can get the same result from domainiq, (whois check) not the history.

    It's just cached whois results.
    As per the registry and registrar data, the expiration date is Registry Expiration: 2022-03-01 21:34:09 UTC
    And the contact data is hidden as per the registrar data (Mailing Address: New Mexico, US), note that the registrar adds this note :
    REDACTED FOR PRIVACY
    Some of the data in this object has been removed.

    I don't see any issue with any of the whois sites mentionned here, some of them just show cached data while others don't (or they had their cache refreshed recently for that domain)

    So you think this cached data can not be trusted, owner probably changed or privacy protection activated.

    So what happened to Whois.net?

    For many years it was my quick goto for registration info.

    It appeared to stop working a while ago, perhaps around the time that regulations concerning whois privacy were updated (?) and today I noticed that when a search for a name is run, it redirects to Hover.

    That site was great, it's true.
    Hover might have bought it or it could just be another affiliate marketer..

    Now for "Can we trust whois", the answer is simply no. It's even explained in some registrar's whois results :
    "OVH Sas make this information available "as is", and do not guarantee its accuracy."
    We can trust a registry or the current registrar. And his whois data is deemed exact and up-to-date if the refresh date is recent. Whois.com shows the updated date for example, or use a command line tool, that should give you recent data

    Run WHOIS From a Windows Command Prompt or MacOS Terminal

    Windows

    Download & Install Whois utility
    1. Open a Windows command prompt
    2. Type whois -v example.com
    3. Whois will return the output to the terminal
    MacOS
    1. Open Terminal
    2. Type whois example.com
    3. Whois will return the output to the terminal
    Ubuntu
    1. Install Whois command: sudo apt-get install whois
    2. Type whois example.com
    3. Whois will return the output to the terminal


    If the Whois return "no match" means the domain isn't registered.

    Regards
