Who is my registrar?

Your domain name registrar is responsible for maintaining your domain registration records, managing your domain renewals, and other administrative details. HostSect's domain registration partner, ResellerClub, is the registrar for all new domains registered through HostSect and all domain registrations transferred to HostSect.

Not sure which organization is the registrar for your domain? If you registered a domain through HostSect and have not transferred your domain to another registrar, your registrar is ResellerClub. HostSect's partnership with eNom allows us to provide you with all the tools you need to maintain your domain yourself from the Client Center.

If you registered your domain through a company other than HostSect and assigned your domain for use with your HostSect hosting plan, you can identify your registrar in several ways. If you remember the company to which you paid your original domain registration fee, contact that organization directly. You can also identify your registrar by looking up your domain name in the public WHOIS database using any WHOIS search tool. Your domain record will include the name of your registrar.

To search the WHOIS, choose the option below that corresponds with the extension of your domain name. On the WHOIS search page, enter your domain name and review the results to find the name of your registrar.

  • To search for domain names ending in .aero, .arpa, .biz, .com, .coop, .edu, .info, .int, .museum, .net, and .org, visit the InterNIC web site.
  • To search for domains ending in .us, visit http://www.whois.us/.
  • For domains ending in a two-letter country code, such as .uk or .jp, try Uwhois.com.
