Each active domain name is registered on the name of a person and during the registration process numerous details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, mobile phone number, and many others. This information plus the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is recognized as WHOIS of the domain and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it needs to be current and correct. If a domain name has incorrect WHOIS details, it can 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 various lookup Internet sites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry businesses. All businesses that provide registration services are required to provide a simple way for their customers to access and modify the WHOIS info of any domain address they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
