The so-called WHOIS details of each registered domain contain information about 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 all this info through a command line or via one of the numerous Internet websites that provide WHOIS lookup services. All information should be up-to-date as per the regulations of ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. If some of the info is not accurate, 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 certain limitations concerning the editing of their WHOIS information, but in the typical case any detail can be edited freely and at any time. Such a change will appear on lookup sites within twenty four hours.
