Whois Contacts:

  2. Admin (special authorization, renewal, termination)
  3. Tech (on-going DNS record management, NS pointing, SOA/zone xfer, TTL, etc.)
  4. [Billing] hidden in recent years—irrelevant: historically, registrars never really used it. Instead, they correspond via account profile email address, for all matters: informational, warnings/notices, billing, etc.
