What is the difference between a registry and a registrar?

A Domain Name Registry or NIC (Network Information Center) is in charge of top-level domains (e.g. ".com") management. Registrars obtain domains under certain TLDs from registries. End customers obtain their domains through registrars. Some registries are also registrars.
