Everyone knows that it is possible to find the owner of a domain using whois, but a person asked me if it was possible to know all the previous owners of a domain. Is it possible?

Yes there are a variety of Whois History lookups such as Domain Tools, most of which are paid services.

These services are merely archives of whois records, but should serve your purpose.
