Each and every active domain name is registered on the name of a particular person and throughout the registration process a number of details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, mobile phone number, and so on. This info as well as the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is known as WHOIS of the domain address and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it must be current and legitimate. If a domain name has wrong WHOIS details, it might be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain can be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS details are public and could be seen on various lookup Internet sites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry businesses. All companies that provide registration services are required to provide an easy way for their customers to access and change the WHOIS details of any domain address they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
