Once a domain name is registered, who is the legal registrant of the domain name?

When a domain name is registered, the "registrant" contracts the use of the domain name. However, there is no permanent registrant for any domain name. The "registrant" of a domain name is the original administrative contact listed at the time of registration, regardless of whether the administrative Contact Information has been changed since that time. In other words, the registrant of a domain name is the individual whose name and Contact Information were initially associated with the user name and password profile for the domain name. If the administrative Contact Information has been changed since the original registration, the most recent administrative Contact Information entered will be visible in the WHOIS record. However, this information may not be that of the actual registrant of the domain name.

When ordering online the contact information will be used as the administrative contact for domain registration.
