Yes, I know there's a domain-name forum but this doesn't "feel" like a domain-name question.
For the people who understand how this stuff works:
When you establish a non-commercial www site, and later on bring in someone to maintain it day-to-day, is it standard practice to let that person register the domain in his name? Are there arguments one way or the other?
It certainly isn't "normal" for a domain to be registered in the name of an employee.
For small community organisations the reality is that the domain will end up in whatever name was on the payment card that was used to fund the transaction. If the bank won't issue a payment card to a community organisation (typically the case on this side of the Atlantic) then you need to find a registrar that will accept payment by cheque.
Thanks for confirming my hunch that the People In Charge are bonkers ;) Subsequent snooping-- inspired by a serendipitous typo-- reveals that there are not one but eight domain names, five of them registered to Employee. But the details would take us into Foo Forum territory.
