Do C band satellites, that are being used for non-commercial, or hobby, purposes, have to be registered with the FCC?

Only on transmitting side is required to have FCC licenses.

On the receiving side there is no license requirement, except dish larger than 1.2 meter sizes, might be subject to local ordinances.

Other than USA, most other countries may be different from ours. :) :hatsoff

There was a program a couple years ago where the FCC registered home C-Band dishes and then they were enrolled in a plan to protect their reception from the upcoming reassignment of some C-Band frequencies to 5G wireless use. But that was a voluntary program and not many hobbyists went for it. But as a rule, there is no registration required.
