A “Registrant” refers to the individual, company, or organization that has registered and holds the rights to a specific domain name. Essentially, the registrant is the legal owner of the domain.
The details of the registrant, including their name, address, email, and phone number, are typically recorded in the WHOIS database at the time of domain registration. This information is necessary for others to contact the domain owner for any legitimate reason, such as purchase inquiries, technical issues, or legal matters.
As a domain name investor, you would be the registrant for all the domain names in your portfolio. It’s important for a registrant to keep their contact information up-to-date with their registrar to ensure they receive any important notifications about their domains.
