Each and every active domain is registered on the name of an individual and during the registration process numerous details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, email, contact number, and many others. These details in addition to the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the domain and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it needs to be current and accurate. If an Internet domain has incorrect WHOIS details, it could be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain name can be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS info is public and can be seen on many lookup Internet sites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry businesses. All businesses that provide registration services are required to provide an uncomplicated way for their clients to access and edit the WHOIS info of any domain name they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
