This article contains information about what WHOIS information is for a domain.

When you register a domain name, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires your domain name registrar to submit your personal contact information to the WHOIS database. Once your listing appears in this online directory, it is publicly available to anyone who chooses to check domain names using the WHOIS search tool. You can purchase domain privacy for your domains to hide these details if you wish.
