What is a central registry (AKA domain name registry)?


We are considered a domain name registrar and we partner with several domain name registries, also known as central registries, to provide a variety of top-level domains (TLDs).

A central registry is a company that maintains a database of all the domain name registrations for a TLD. They also store the DNS and Whois records for that TLD.

You can find the registry info for each of our TLDs on their individual pages under the "Domain Information" section towards the bottom of the page. For example, you will see that the registry for .COM is Verisign. Many registries support more than one TLD. Verisign also supports .NET, .TV, and .CC.
