Definition Edit

Domain name registration is the process through which individuals and organizations obtain a domain name. Registration of a domain name enables the individual or organization to use that particular domain name for a specified period of time, provided certain conditions are met and payment for services is made.

Overview Edit

A person or an organization can register a domain name as long as it is not already regis­tered. Domain names are registered with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a nonprofit organization responsible for Internet address assign­ment and domain name server management. Information required to register a domain name includes name, address, phone number, billing information, e-mail address, and technical and administrative contact information.

In addition to this information, the date that a domain name was registered may be available from the registrar.
