Introduction

Any registered domain name has contact information associated with it. This categorised as below:

  • Registrant Contact - This is the contact for the legal owner  of the domain or the domain license holder.
  • Administrator Contact - This is the contact for the domain name manager.
  • Technical Contact - This is the contact of the person who manages all of the technical issues related to the domain.
  • Billing Contact - This is the contact of the person authorized to receive renewal invoices for the domain names.

It's very common to find domain names with the same contact information for the registrant, administrator, technical and billing.

Please note that ICANN requires every domain registrant and registrar to keep accurate and updated whois records for domain names to which they are registrants or registrars respectively. As a result, you should always update your domain's contact information as frequently as it changes. 

Also, if you are planning to update or change your domain's whois contact information for purposed of masking or hiding your personal information from spammers, you would rather read how to activate Whois Privacy or ID Protection for your domain name. Else, read on.
