Every active domain is registered on the name of a particular person and throughout the registration procedure many details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, email, contact number, and many others. This info along with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the domain and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it ought to be current and accurate. If a domain name has invalid WHOIS details, it could be reported and if the details are not corrected, the domain name could be erased or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and can be seen on many lookup sites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the websites of the respective Registry organizations. All businesses that offer registration services are obligated to provide an effective way for their clients to access and modify the WHOIS information of any domain address they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
