Each and every active domain is registered on the name of a particular person and throughout the registration procedure many details are introduced - the owner’s names, address, email, phone number, and so forth. This info combined with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is referred to as WHOIS of the Internet domain and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it needs to be current and legitimate. If an Internet domain has invalid WHOIS details, it may be reported and if the details are not corrected, the domain address can be deleted or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS information is public and could be seen on numerous lookup sites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the websites of the respective Registry companies. All companies which provide registration services are required to provide an effective way for their customers to access and edit the WHOIS info of any domain they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
