Each and every active domain is registered on the name of a particular person and through the registration process many details are submitted - the owner’s names, address, e-mail, telephone number, and many others. This info in addition to the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is known as WHOIS of the domain address and in agreement with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it should be current and legitimate. If a domain address has wrong WHOIS details, it could 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 a lot of lookup sites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the sites of the respective Registry businesses. All companies that provide registration services are required to provide an uncomplicated way for their customers to access and modify the WHOIS details of any domain they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
