Domain Name Registrars

Domain name registrars are essentially retail companies that handle all of the consumer contact for domain name registrations, including customer service and billing.

The domain name registrar you choose will ask you to provide various contact and technical information that makes up the registration. The registrar will then keep records of the contact information and submit the technical information to a central directory known as the “registry.” [full definition]
