Probably, every who open this page already know - that is "domain whois", so we will describe what we mean under "raw whois data" and properties.
First of all that you need deep understand of scheme how domain's whois data collecting and working, there is some example.
Notice: TLD registrar's data and local registrar's data based on same user's data, but it can contains additional information, so we outputting local registrar's whois record after flag "===ADDITIONAL_WHOIS_DATA_FOUND===". That is why raw whois data can consist of two different whois records - TLD registrar's data and local registrar's data. If this tag not exists - there is no local registrar's data, it consist of only TLD registrar's data.

|2.||All registrars require that user input data about itself before purchase, so user inputting his first name,last name, email, phone etc. List of obligatory fields can be different for different registrars, so phone number field can be obligatory or optional, some useful fields can be empty.|
|3.||User going purchase and registrar adding information to domain zone holder that domain "example.com" is registered and adding information inputed by user to whois database.|
|4.||Registrant (user who purchase domain) can edit whois information any time, it will take some time until domain zone holder's whois database will updated too.|
