The role of a Registrar primarily involves interacting directly with the public and facilitating the registration process for domain names.

Registrars act as intermediaries, enabling individuals and organizations to acquire and manage their desired domain names. They provide services such as domain name search, registration, renewal, and transfer to the public arena.

On the other hand, a Registry plays a distinct role in the domain name ecosystem and they are crucial for maintaining the stability and functionality of the DNS infrastructure.

While Registrars interface with the public, Registries solely interact with Registrars and are responsible for managing the technical infrastructure that underpins the domain name system (DNS) and the delegation of IP addresses.

They maintain authoritative databases for specific TLDs, overseeing the registration data associated with domain names and their corresponding IP addresses.
