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