Each and every active domain is registered on the name of an individual and during the registration process a number of details are introduced - the owner’s names, address, email, contact number, and so forth. This information combined with the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is recognized as WHOIS of the domain name and in agreement with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it has to be current and legitimate. If an Internet domain has incorrect WHOIS details, it might be reported and if the details aren't fixed, the domain may be deleted or the registrar company could take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS details are public and may be seen on many lookup Internet 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 obliged to provide an effective way for their clients to access and modify the WHOIS information of any domain address they own as much as the specific TLD allows it.
