The so-called WHOIS details of each registered domain include information regarding the registrar company, the registration and expiration dates, along with the names, telephone number, postal address and email address of the owner, the administrator and the tech/billing person. WHOIS is a specific protocol that permits you to get all this information through a command line or via one of the many Internet websites which provide WHOIS lookup services. All info 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 correct, the internet domain might be reported and the result might be its removal or losing its ownership. Several country-specific domain name extensions have certain limitations concerning the editing of their WHOIS information, but in the typical case any detail can be edited easily and at any moment. Such an adjustment will appear on lookup websites within twenty four hours.
