Each and every active domain name is registered on the name of a person and throughout the registration procedure a lot of details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, email, contact number, and so on. These details plus the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is known as WHOIS of the domain and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it must be current and accurate. If a domain address has wrong WHOIS details, it could be reported and if the details aren't corrected, the domain name can be erased or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and could be seen on various lookup Internet sites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry businesses. All businesses that offer registration services are obliged to provide an easy way for their customers to access and modify the WHOIS details of any domain they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
