DomainTools, LLC is a Seattle, Washington based American company that provides DNS research tools that use a database of domain name, IP address, and WHOIS data. These tools are used for brand protection, domain monitoring, domain valuation, and cybercrime investigation.[2][3][4] Other services include a name suggestion, patented reverse IP address, and a combined screenshot history view that incorporates millions of screenshots that shows how a website looked recently or in the past.

Founded in 2002 by Jay Westerdal, DomainTools was later sold to Thought Convergence, Inc. in 2008.[6] It is currently owned by DCL Group S.A. which also owns other companies such as EuroDNS and eBrand Services.[7]
