How to find your domain registrar

If you'd like us to push your new site live, but you’re unsure of how to find the domain registrar login credentials, this might help:

What is a domain registrar?

It's the company that manages your web address (not to be mistaken for the company that hosts your website, although this could be the same company which could make all of this confusing.) 


How can I find out who my domain registrar is?

• Is the person who originally set up your website around? If you ask them, they'll probably be able to tell you. 

• The most popular domain registrars are GoDaddy, HostGator, Namecheap, Bluehost, 1and1, and Network Solutions. Do any of these sound familiar to you? If so, you can search your email inbox for them to see if they sent you any messages.

• Another option is to look up your WHOIS information (public registered users database of internet resources such as domain names.) Go to https://who.is/, type in your web address, and search. NOTE: Type in your web address without https:// or www. For example, "google.com" instead of "http://www.google.com/"

Look for the "Registrar Info" area. It will look something like this:

We can see here that for Google, their domain registrar is "MarkMonitor."

Once you find your registrar company, do a search for the company's phone number and call them. They will be able to help you obtain your login credentials.

While these steps will help most of the time, there are situations in which your domain was purchased from a reseller. If that is the case, when you contact the registrar listed, you may have to go through a process to prove you own the domain.


We hope this helps! Of course, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
