Each and every active domain is registered on the name of an individual and throughout the registration process a number of details are introduced - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, phone number, and so on. This information along with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is recognized as WHOIS of the Internet domain and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it must be current and legitimate. If an Internet domain has wrong WHOIS details, it might be reported and if the details are not fixed, the domain name may be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and can be seen on many lookup websites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry organizations. All companies that provide registration services are obligated to provide an easy way for their clients to access and edit the WHOIS information of any domain they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
