Hello friends,
I want to register a new domain.
So, can you tell me the difference between domain registrants, domain registrars, and reseller?

This is a usual doubt before registering a domain. Will try to explain in simple terms :

1) Domain registrant:
Any person who wants to register a domain name is called as domain registrant. That means, an end customer.

[When you decide to buy a domain, you reach out to domain registrars or resellers.]

2) Domain registrar: Registrars are accredited organizations that take responsibility for processing the registration of domain names.

3) Domain resellers: Reseller registers a domain on behalf of registrants, but they don't have a contractual relationship with ICANN.
