What's the difference between a registrar and an affiliate?
A registrar can register and update domain names, but an affiliate can't. Registrars can also use the Whois more often. They can submit more than five thousand Whois queries a day, whereas an affiliate can only make fifteen enquiries, like any member of the public.
