The so-called WHOIS details of any registered domain include information regarding the registrar organization, the registration and expiration dates, as well as the names, telephone number, postal address and e-mail address of the owner, the admin and the tech/billing person. WHOIS is a specific protocol that lets you retrieve this info through a command line or by using one of the many Internet websites that provide WHOIS lookup services. All information should be up-to-date in accordance with the policies of ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. If some of the details are not legitimate, the internet domain could be reported and the result could be its deletion or losing its ownership. A few country-specific internet domain extensions have specific limitations for the editing of their WHOIS details, but in the general case any detail can be changed easily and at any moment. Such an adjustment will appear on lookup sites within twenty four hours.
