Each and every active domain is registered on the name of a particular person and throughout the registration process many details are introduced - the owner’s names, address, email, phone number, and so on. This information as well as the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the domain name and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it should be current and legitimate. If a domain address has incorrect WHOIS details, it can be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the Internet domain could be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and could be seen on a lot of lookup websites, or for a small number of country-code extensions - on the websites of the respective Registry organizations. All businesses that provide registration services are obliged to provide an uncomplicated way for their clients to access and change the WHOIS information of any domain address they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
