Each and every active domain name is registered on the name of an individual and through the registration procedure many details are presented - the owner’s names, address, email, phone number, and so on. This info plus 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 should be current and legitimate. If a domain name has incorrect WHOIS details, it could be reported and if the details aren't corrected, the domain address could be erased or the registrar company could 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 websites of the respective Registry businesses. 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 Internet domain they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
