When a domain name is registered, the registrant must provide the registrar of the domain name with valid and up-to-date contact information. In theory, by looking up the domain name in any public whois database, anyone is supposed to be able to view this registration information, and thus contact the person or company that owns it (registrant or licensee).
But what if you want the contact person to be the IP law firm, the marketing executive or brand manager? The OpenRegistry Software allows you to specify tailored contact types to suit your registry’s need. Each contact type can contain the default set of contact data or field you specify.
