Every active domain is registered on the name of an individual and through the registration process a number of details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, telephone number, and so on. These details plus the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the domain and in compliance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it has to be current and legitimate. If a domain address has invalid WHOIS details, it might be reported and if the details aren't corrected, the Internet domain can be erased or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS info is public and could be seen on numerous lookup sites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry businesses. All companies which provide registration services are obliged to provide an effective way for their customers to access and edit the WHOIS information of any domain name they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
