Why is it important to maintain an accurate WHOIS record?

There are many reasons to maintain an accurate WHOIS record. The most important reason for maintaining an accurate WHOIS record is that it reduces the chance of an unauthorized modification or transfer to your domain name. It also ensures that we have contact data by which to communicate critical information to you. In addition to these reasons, you are also obligated to maintain an accurate WHOIS record with the registry in order to have your registration remain valid. Having an invalid WHOIS record can result in the suspension or even deletion of your domain.
