Each active domain is registered on the name of a particular person and throughout the registration process a number of details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, email, phone number, etc. This information along with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is addressed as WHOIS of the Internet domain and in agreement with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it should be current and legitimate. If a domain address has invalid WHOIS details, it may be reported and if the details aren't corrected, the domain address may be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS info is public and can be seen on various lookup sites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry organizations. All businesses that provide registration services are obligated to provide a simple way for their customers to access and edit the WHOIS information of any domain they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
