What is a registrar and how do I know which one registered my domain name?

You may find out the registrar for your domain name by clicking here:

http://registrar.verisign-grs.com/whois

Conducting this WHOIS search for your domain name will display the registrar for your domain name. A registrar, like Tucows/OpenSRS, is a company accredited by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) to register, manage and keep track of domain names. All domain names are registered via a registrar, and AISO.Net uses Tucows/OpenSRS to register all of our clients' new .com, .net and .org domain names. Tucows is one of the most popular and prominent registrars, maintaining one of the largest client bases due to their excellent service, support, and online management tools. There are, however, other registrars that have the authority to register domain names. When transferring your domain name to AISO.Net, your registrar needs to make changes to your domain name server (DNS) records, so that those who browse to your Website will be directed to the proper place, your account hosted on AISO.Net's servers. You'll see that AISO.Net automatically instigates the transfer for you when you place your order. Our technical support staff can help you transfer your domain name. Simple instructions specific to your registrar will automatically be sent to you when we setup your hosting account.
