What Happen if Domain Owner Death?

Posted on: September 28, 2009

Nice discussion here about what happen if the domain owner is die?

I am wondering what exactly happens upon the demise of a domain owner in regards to the domain itself. In the unfortunate incident a domain owner passes away, does the domain he/she owns return to the pool after its expiration? Or do the relatives or someone in charge of the estate materials acquire all rights to the domain? I know the likelihood of a very high profile domain (i.e. business.com) being non-functional after such an instance is virtually impossible, but what about lesser domains (i.e. bobshouse.com) or the like? It would be informational to know what exactly is the process and legalities of such an issue once a domain owner’s death occurs.
