Your domain name registrar is responsible for maintaining your domain registration records, managing your domain renewals, and other administrative details. Yahoo!'s domain registration partner, Melbourne IT, is the registrar for all new domains registered through Yahoo!
Not sure which organization is the registrar for your domain? If you registered a domain through Yahoo! after January 22, 2001 (or, for Merchant Solutions customers, after March 23, 2001) and have not transferred your domain to another registrar, your registrar is Melbourne IT. Yahoo!'s partnership with Melbourne IT allows us to provide you with all the tools you need to maintain your domain yourself from your Domain Control Panel.
If you registered your domain through Yahoo! before the dates noted above, and you have not transferred your domain to another registrar, your registrar is most likely Network Solutions.
If you registered your domain through a company other than Yahoo! and redelegated your domain for use with your Yahoo! 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.
