What shows in the WHOIS directory?

When a domain is registered, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, requires us to gather contact information for the person or business registering the domain name, known as the Registrant or Domain Holder. The WHOIS directory information displayed may vary, depending on the protection plan you have chosen for your domain.
