Domain name registrar - an organization through which a user can register a new domain and manage it for a paid period of time on the registrar's website.

Transferring a domain to another registrar means changing the company where the domain is serviced. For the transfer to take place, the administrator needs to remove the domain from the previous registrar and "ask" the new registrar to accept the domain for service.
