A registrar is an accredited organization that sells domain names to the public (It can be referred to as a Reseller). Some have the ability to sell top-level domain names (TLDs) like .com, .net, and .org or country-code top-level domain names (ccTLD) such as .RW, .CA, .EU or others.

A registrant is the person, company or organization that registers a domain name. All registrants manage their domain names through their registrars. When you register a domain name, you become a registrant.

A Domain name is a text-based name used to identify an Internet space. A domain name can have multiple services such as a website, a mail service, etc. associated and/or built onto it [domain name]

First, you, the domain name owner (registrant) has to identify the new (gaining) registrar you want to work with. The new (gaining) registrar, through an official request from RICTA registry systems, issue a domain name transfer request to the old (losing) registrar. Once the old (losing) registrar agrees, the domain name is transferred.
