Each active domain name 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, contact number, and so on. This info as well as the registrar company name and the registration/expiration dates is addressed as WHOIS of the domain name and in accordance with the policies of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) it needs to be current and accurate. If a domain name has incorrect WHOIS details, it might be reported and if the details are not corrected, the Internet domain may be erased or the registrar company may take over its ownership. By default, the WHOIS info is public and could be seen on many lookup websites, or for a smaller number of country-code extensions - on the Internet sites of the respective Registry companies. All businesses that offer registration services are required to provide an easy way for their clients to access and change the WHOIS information of any domain they own as much as the particular TLD allows it.
