Each active domain name is registered on the name of an individual and during the registration procedure numerous details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, contact number, and so forth. These details combined with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the domain name and in compliance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it ought to be current and accurate. If a domain has wrong WHOIS details, it could be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain name can be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS info is public and may be seen on various lookup sites, or for a small number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry companies. All companies which offer registration services are required to provide a simple way for their customers to access and edit the WHOIS info of any domain they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
