Techopedia explains Domain Name Registrar

Suppose that an enterpreneur wants to register a domain through which he intends to sell inexpensive laptop computers. The enterpreneur might approach a domain name registrar to register the domain "laptopsforcheap.com." If the domain name hasn't already been registered to another person, the entrepreneur can register it and gain the right to use it by paying the registrar a yearly fee to secure the space.
