They do.
No, they do not.  At least for the ones I use (register.com and SRS).
Register.com certainly does do this. I've used them to make changes to a host that was orignally created by NSOL, but the hosts' domain was moved after its creation, to Register.com. NSOL refused to update my host record when I needed to change its IP address. They said I had to do it at Register.com. A note to support@register.com took care of it.


Don't change your info at NSOL if NSOL is not your registrar.
It appears that the person who "believed" that NSOL was the central
repository for this was correct.  Changes are made at NSOL, and picked up
by other resgistrars via whois.
No, changes are made at the registrar for hosts that live in domains that are held at the registrar. Eventually the crsnic whois database is updated. In my case, NSOL whois still shows the old IP address for my host, but crsnic whois has the right address, and so do the GTLD servers.

If Governments really want us to behave like civilized human beings, they
should give serious consideration towards setting a better example:
Ruling by force, rather than consensus; the unrestrained application of
unjust laws (which the victim-populations were never allowed input on in
the first place); the State policy of justice only for the rich and
elected; the intentional abuse and occassionally destruction of entire
populations merely to distract an already apathetic and numb electorate...
This type of demogoguery must surely wipe out the fascist United States
as surely as it wiped out the fascist Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The views expressed here are mine, and NOT those of my employers,
associates, or others.  Besides, if it *were* the opinion of all of
those people, I doubt there would be a problem to bitch about in the
first place...
