Each active domain name is registered on the name of a person and throughout the registration procedure a lot of details are presented - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, contact number, etc. This info combined with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is recognized as WHOIS of the domain address and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it has to be current and correct. If a domain name has wrong WHOIS details, it can be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain address may be deleted or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and may be seen on numerous lookup websites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry companies. All companies which offer registration services are required to provide an uncomplicated way for their clients to access and edit the WHOIS details of any domain address they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
