Every active domain name is registered on the name of a person and through the registration process numerous details are introduced - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, cell phone number, and so on. This information plus the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is recognized as WHOIS of the domain name and in compliance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it ought to be current and accurate. If a domain name has incorrect WHOIS details, it might be reported and if the details are not corrected, the domain address can be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS info is public and may be seen on many lookup Internet sites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry organizations. All businesses that offer registration services are required to provide a simple way for their customers to access and change the WHOIS details of any domain name they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
