Intro: Domain names are reserved by individuals and corporations to create destinations or websites for users that access the internet. Registration of a domain name is done by a registrar that assigns domain names for a top level domain, such as .com, .net or .org address. Domain name registrars include companies such as Register.com, Network Solutions and GoDaddy.com.
You can get domain name owners from the WHOIS lookup available at any registrar's website.
