Hello,

When you are making a website for a client, do you register the domain name with their details? or do you register it with yours?

Thanks in advance

Unless there is a very, very good reason, the client owns the domain. Too many problems the other way.
If you choose to retain ownership, then spell the arrangement out completely.

Thanks for the reply.

Following on... So, when I buy the domain with the clients details, should I enter my email address, so that I get the nameservers, and when the website is finished change the contact email to the clients address? Im not sure how this works. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Regards

The Registrant is the "owner" of the domain. You should use your clients details for this (and in fact for all contact details).

Provided you have access to the domain registration account you can change anything at any time. Presumably you need this access to change the dns servers to your own hosting servers. After you have done that I would then recommend to your client he changes his domain registration password.
