How to check the ownership of a domain name?

There are some methods to check the ownership of a domain name in the cPanel/WHM server. Below are the command lines and for each one described, you may copy and execute any of them as your own wish:

locate $domain

Before executing the above command, make sure, locate is already installed on the server. If not, execute the following command line to install and update the meta DB:

yum install mlocate -y --skip-broken && updatedb

Check through the official script of cPanel:

/scripts/whoowns $domain

Check through the user's database of cPanel:

grep $domain /etc/userdomains

Do not forget to replace your domain name instead of $domain
