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 presented - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, cell phone number, and many others. This info combined with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the domain and in agreement with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it should be current and accurate. If an Internet domain has invalid WHOIS details, it can be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain name may be erased or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS details are public and may be seen on numerous lookup Internet sites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry companies. All businesses that offer registration services are obliged to provide a simple way for their customers to access and edit the WHOIS information of any domain address they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
