Registration procedure for domain names
Domain name registrant is the individual or organisation that has registrated the domain name. For this purpose, the domain name registrant will usually contact a domain name registration agent or one of its retailers on-line. Domain holders are subject to the registration policy of the domain name holder with whom they register their domain names, e.g. to comply with a specific set of rules of procedure or to exempt the domain name holder and the registration authority from any judicial or administrative measures taken in connection with the use of the domain name.
Registered domain name holders have certain obligations that are included in these General Business Practices, such as paying registration charges and submitting and updating exact information in a timely manner.
Several domain name registration companies may choose to registrate through a retailer.
Whilst the Registrars are charged with the ongoing sale of domain name registration, the Registrars are in charge of the maintenance of the registration for each TLD.
