Each and every active domain name is registered on the name of a person and throughout the registration process numerous details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, cell phone number, and many others. This info along with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the domain address and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it should be current and accurate. If a domain name has incorrect WHOIS details, it may be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the Internet domain may be deleted or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS details are public and may be seen on various lookup Internet sites, or for a small number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry companies. All companies that offer registration services are obliged to provide an uncomplicated way for their customers to access and edit the WHOIS information of any domain name they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
