How do I run a Registry?
There are many facets and roles in the operation of a registry, including registrar functions and DNS propagation. There exists professional services that provide contract registration services for domain registrations under Top-Level domains, as well as software that a domain registrant can use to support registry operations, including database management maintenance, and backups.

It is not a trivial undertaking, and if a public registry is the objective there are also issues to consider involving privacy for registrants, survivability of the registry database, and a public interface from which registration services may take place.

Private and other smaller registries such as those powering corporate Intranets or TLDs chartered for special interest use have more options to choose from, including manual manual registration and manipulation of registry and DNS zone data when only a small amount of DNS zones need to be managed.

Again, if you are interested in operating a registry, or contracting a professional provider of registry services to perform this service on your behalf, you should familiarize yourself with the roles and responsibilities involved by reading more about it.
