    Hi

    i have a question.
    what do i need to send to the registrar when i want to buy a domain name.

    Do i need to leave personal information like address and name?If so do they need any verification like a scanned passport.

    Yes, you need provide your name and address, you need also credit card or paypal.
    When you register domain you can setup as private domain - your data will be not visible.
    On Name.com this service is free. :)

    An available domain name, a credit card / paypal account to make payment, a valid email id for you to receive information - and ICANN required valid address.

    No scanned documents are required for submission - so you just need to type in the details with any domain registrar to register any domain name including a .com

    Scanned documents such as passport are not required just as the guys upstair said.I still want to mention you
    one point,you can still get private registration so that your personal information can't be accessed by others.
    But this is usually not free.You can first choose a domain registrar and then ask them some more details.

    Most registrar's are providing whois privacy protection free of cost. As said above name.com and directi.com are one of them.
    You certainly dont require to provide any documents such as passport to get a domain but as per ICANN rules your contact information must correct.

    You must provide two things:

    1. Your personal info - name, address etc; AND

    2. Money (CC or paypal)

    All the best! :D

    Well, You basically need just one Thing - Money and The available Domain.

    Money in the form the Registrar accepts it eg : paypal ,CC , Bank Transfer , Demand Draft etc .

    The Info You are referring to is more of your concern as technically the person or the Registrant is the owner of the domain.

    But always keep the email , as your working email, need not be a primary email but something where if needed, the registrar may notify u, say in case the domain is close to expiry.

    Beware each domain name zone has own rules for registration. Be very accurate or that might happen you lose your domain name
