Each and every active domain name is registered on the name of a person and during the registration process a number of details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, email, contact number, and so on. This information along with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the domain address and in compliance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it should be current and correct. If an Internet domain has invalid WHOIS details, it may be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain name may be erased or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and can be seen on many lookup Internet sites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry organizations. All companies which provide registration services are required to provide an easy way for their clients to access and change the WHOIS information of any domain address they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
