What is domain ownership?
The owner of a domain can be a company, individual or organization and is referred to as the legal registrant of the domain.
When registering domain names, the name given as the registrant or owner when you sign up will be displayed in the WHO IS record for the domain name. This entity will then be the legal owner of the domain name.
If you’re a web designer, or reseller it’s important that you register domain names in the name of your customer to avoid any ownership disputes at a later date.
Once a domain is registered, it is still possible to change the ownership.
