Each and every active domain name is registered on the name of a particular person and through the registration process a lot of details are introduced - the owner’s names, address, email, mobile phone number, etc. This information plus the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is called WHOIS of the domain and in compliance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it needs to be current and legitimate. If an Internet domain has wrong WHOIS details, it might be reported and if the details aren't corrected, the Internet domain may be deleted or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS details are public and can be seen on numerous lookup sites, or for a small number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry businesses. All businesses that offer registration services are required to provide a simple way for their clients to access and edit the WHOIS information of any Internet domain they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
