A domain registrar is a company or organization that manages the reservation and registration of domain names on the internet.

Domain names are human-readable addresses that allow users to access websites, such as www.example.com in our case www.conetix.com.au.

The domain registrar acts as an intermediary between individuals or businesses (registrants) who want to purchase a domain name and the central registry responsible for maintaining the database of all registered domain names within a specific top-level domain (TLD) e.g. .com .net .info. and .org

When someone wants to acquire a domain name, they typically choose a domain registrar or domain reseller, pay a registration fee, and provide the necessary contact information. The registrar or domain reseller then submits the registration information to the relevant domain registry, which adds the domain name to its database and updates the global DNS (Domain Name System) to point to the registrant’s chosen web hosting or DNS provider.

Popular domain registrars include companies like GoDaddy, Namecheap and in Australia Synergy Wholesale. There are nearly 1600 domain extensions listed in the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Root Zone Database.
