No, providing IP is not relevant to domain registration service.
What is the technical information that I must provide to activate the domain?
To activate the domain name, you must provide the Names and IP addresses of Primary and Secondary Domain Name Server.

Why I must provide the name of at least one name server and its IP?
Domain names are held in a distributed database. Your “Domain Name Server” holds the name and IP address of all the machines in your domain. Whenever any machine in the internet tries to locate a machine in your domain, (that is under .bd domain), the request is first forwarded to .bd name server. The .bd name server then looks up the name of your domain’s name server in its database. Then it responds mentioning the name of your “Domain Name Serve” as the ultimate authority to give that information. Your “Domain Name Server” is then queried about that machine and the IP address is obtained from it.

What will happen if I do not provide technical information?
In that case the domain name will be reserved for you but it will be inoperative.

How can I check that the information I provided were entered properly?
Network utility tools like “nslookup” or “dig” can be used for this purpose, making .bd Domain name server “dns.bd” as the default server.

Why do I have to mention “Administrative contact” and “Technical contact”?
It is a general practice to separate two types of activities associated with the control of a domain. “Administrative contact” is the ultimate authority of a domain. “Technical contact” deals with the technical aspects of that domain.

Who should be the administrative and technical contacts of the domain?
Administrative contact must be from the registrant organisation. Technical contact may be anybody authorized by the registrant.
