A domain name registrar has to be compulsorily be accredited by a generic top-level domain registry or a country code top-level domain registry. Their management is done in accordance with the guidelines of the designated domain name registries. Domain registration information is maintained by the domain name registries, which contract with domain registrars to provide registration services to the public. An end user selects a registrar to provide the registration service, and that registrar becomes the designated registrar for the domain chosen by the user. Only designated registrars may modify or delete information about domain names in a central registry database. It is not unusual for an end user to switch registrars, invoking a domain transfer process between registrars, and is governed by specific domain name transfer policies.
