According to Wikipedia, a domain name registrar is an organization or commercial entity, accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) or by a national country code top-level domain (ccTLD) authority, to manage the reservation of Internet domain names in accordance with the guidelines of the designated domain name registries and offer such services to the public.
Some of the biggest domain name registrars include:
- Network Solutions
Many times a registrar will also be your web hosting company but that is not always the case.
Most registrars provide access to management of DNS records which is a requirement for our support team to be able to configure your site.
If the info for your registrar you provide does not allow us to configure your DNS, you will need to either:
- Transfer your domain to a registrar who will allow you to configure your DNS.
- Contact your registrar to have them manually add DNS records.
