The so-called WHOIS details of every registered domain include information about the registrar firm, the registration and expiration dates, as well as the names, phone number, postal address and e-mail address of the owner, the administrator and the tech/billing person. WHOIS is a special protocol that lets you get this information through a command line or using one of the many sites that offer WHOIS lookup services. All information ought to be up-to-date in line with the regulations of ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. If some of the info is not legitimate, the domain address can be reported and the result could be its removal or losing its ownership. Several country-specific domain name extensions have specific limitations for the editing of their WHOIS info, but in the typical scenario any detail can be edited openly and at any time. Such an adjustment will show up on lookup Internet sites within 24 hours.
