Each active domain name is registered on the name of a particular person and through the registration process numerous details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, email, contact number, and many others. This information in addition to the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the Internet domain and in compliance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it should be current and legitimate. If a domain has wrong WHOIS details, it could be reported and if the details aren't corrected, the domain may be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and may be seen on a lot of lookup websites, or for a small number of country-code extensions - on the websites of the respective Registry businesses. All businesses that provide registration services are obliged to provide an easy way for their customers to access and modify the WHOIS information of any Internet domain they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
