Information for Domain Name Registrants
A domain name registrant is the entity that has acquired the right to use a domain name for a period of time via an agreement with a registrar or reseller. As a domain name registrant, you have certain rights and responsibilities. Your rights include access to information from your registrar regarding processes for registering, managing, transferring, renewing, and restoring your domain name registration. Your responsibilities include providing accurate contact information for publication in the WHOIS directory, promptly notifying your registrar of any changes to your contact information, and promptly responding to your registrar's request for information relating to your domain name registration. This newly created web page aggregates and compiles existing content from across icann.org to help you understand your rights and obligations, and manage your domain name registration.
The ICANN organization is committed to provding domain name registrants with information about their rights and obligations, the domain name ecosystem and how to navigate it. We will also provide information about the ICANN organization and ICANN policies that impact domain name registratnts.This web page will be updated on an ongoing basis and evolve over time to better provide relevant content and information.
