I recently received a WHOIS notification that contained inaccurate information.  I logged into my account and updated the information.  I believe I then received a notification that the WHOIS information was corrected.  I have since received WHOIS notification for other websites that I have, and that information remains incorrect.  But, my account information is still correct.  How do I update the WHOIS information?  Thanks!

All WHOIS information is pulled from the information on your domain registration. When ICANN sends the email about your information they do use default information that wont reflect your actual personal information as a privacy  precaution. As long as your information in correct under the domain contact info you are all set. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/account-update-domain-contact-info
