There's a domain name that I am interested in where the official registrant (visible in whois) is deceased. I seems also the company he worked at, who is also listed in whois as owner, has ceased to exist, phone numbers are out of service. The domain name has no content but emails still goes through.
Is there no requirement that the owner of a domain must be alive and/or a company listed as registrant must still be in business?
I'm wondering if there's any way I can get my hands on this domain due to the above.
The domain has been renewed once though, so it's unfortunately (for me) not a completely forgotten asset.
