Each and every active domain name is registered on the name of a particular person and through the registration process numerous details are introduced - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, contact number, and so on. This information as well as the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is addressed as WHOIS of the domain address and in compliance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it needs to be current and correct. If an Internet domain has wrong WHOIS details, it may be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain could be erased or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS info is public and can be seen on many lookup sites, or for a limited number of country-code extensions - on the websites of the respective Registry businesses. All companies which offer registration services are required to provide an effective way for their customers to access and edit the WHOIS information of any domain name they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
