The so-called WHOIS details of any registered domain name include information about the registrar firm, the registration and expiration dates, plus the names, phone number, postal address and e-mail address of the owner, the admin and the tech/billing person. WHOIS is a specific protocol that allows you to obtain all of this info either through a command line or through one of the many Internet websites which provide WHOIS lookup services. All information ought to be up-to-date in accordance with the rules of ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. If some of the information is not accurate, the domain address can be reported and the result might be its removal or losing its ownership. Some country-specific domain name extensions have specific limitations concerning the editing of their WHOIS info, but in the typical scenario any detail can be edited openly and at any time. Such a change will appear on lookup sites within 1 day.
