How long does it take for the new domain information to show up on the global Whois record ?

The root zone files that tell the world who owns a domain are only updated about once a day - so your new domain information should be visible to the world in less than 48 hours from the time you registered it. Until then, it looks as if that domain name has not been registered but no one else can register it as it has already been reserved for you.

What is the Registrant of a domain name ?

The Registrant is the entity which is the legal registrant of the name, and is tracked by the registrar for your security and so that no other organization or entity can request changes to the name. It is standard practice to use your full company or organization name as the Registrant of Record. If there is no company name, the name of the individual registrant can be used. Ensure that you have filled in the correct information in your registration form especially on the domain name you wish to register. After the form is submitted and the domain name is registered, no changes can be made and the payment made for domain registrations are nonrefundable.

Note that
you are not leasing the name and we take no ownership interest in your names. We do not require any advertising on your site or anything of the sort. You will be the owner of the domain name we register for you. Your ownership information will show up whenever someone searches that domain name at our site, at the VeriSign/NSI site and everywhere else that provides domain search services. Registration contracts at some of our competitors including VeriSign/NSI imply you are not the owner of the name you are registering and that it could be revoked for a variety of reasons. Be forewarned.

I noticed that I am not listed as administrator, tech contact, or billing contact. Does this mean that you or I own my domain name ?

The administrative, tech and billing contacts are not important in the domain name information. It is the Registrant (You, our customer) that owns the domain name. If necessary, we can change the admin, tech or billing contact to be updated under your name, however we would recommend that it be left under our domain administrators name so that we may maintain the domain name for you from time to time. If you want to be listed as the administrator, tech contact, or billing contact, email us at and we will change it for you without any additional charges.
