Each active domain name is registered on the name of a particular person and during the registration process numerous details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, email, mobile phone number, and so on. This info as well as the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is recognized as WHOIS of the domain and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it has to be current and legitimate. If a domain address has incorrect WHOIS details, it may be reported and if the details are not corrected, the domain could 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 small number of country-code extensions - on the websites of the respective Registry companies. All companies that offer registration services are obliged to provide an uncomplicated way for their clients to access and change the WHOIS details of any domain name they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
