Each active domain name is registered on the name of an individual and during the registration procedure many details are introduced - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, contact number, and many others. This info in addition to the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is called WHOIS of the domain address and in agreement with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it must be current and legitimate. If an Internet domain has wrong WHOIS details, it may be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain address may 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 sites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry companies. All businesses that provide registration services are obligated to provide an effective way for their clients to access and change the WHOIS information of any Internet domain they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
