So far, I am extremely disappointed in the functionality of the
distributed registrar structure. My biggest complaint is the absence of a
centralized whois database. If a domain is registered through other
registrars, I have no way to track down who owns it. To even verify if a
domain is already registered, I have to try to submit a request to
register it. This really needs to be fixed. A centralized whois database
Also, the only registrar (besides Network Solutions) that I have dealt
with is register.com, and I have to say their procedures for making
changes to a domain are very strange. If an administrative email contact
attached to a domain registered through them no longer exists, then there
is no efficient way to make changes to the domain.
I also believe that no matter which registrar a particular domain was
originally registered through, we should be able to make changes to it by
submitting a request to any other registrar.
I hope that the current state of the domain registration is not indicative
of the future. It is much too fragmented to be of any real use.
