Each and every active domain is registered on the name of an individual and throughout the registration procedure a lot of details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, email, cell phone number, etc. This info in addition to the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is addressed as WHOIS of the domain and in compliance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it must be current and accurate. If a domain name has wrong WHOIS details, it may be reported and if the details aren't corrected, the domain address may be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and could be seen on numerous lookup websites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the websites of the respective Registry companies. All businesses that offer registration services are obliged to provide a simple way for their clients to access and edit the WHOIS details of any domain address they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
