How is the registration token used by the Registrar to submit a domain registration to Neustar?

Once fTLD completes the verification process and approves the application, fTLD will issue the registration token to the Registrant and its Registrar of choice (if selected). The Registrant will then present the registration token to its Registrar of choice. The Registrar validates the token and extracts the Whois data, then submits the registration data via EPP to the Registry System and the domain name(s) is automatically put into a pendingCreate status.
