Deceased natural person can’t be the owner of the domain. If it comes to the attention of the EIF that a registrant who is a natural person has been dead, the EIF will notify the contact of the domain and start the deletion procedure.

NOTE! A person who holds the right to the domain name (successor) has the opportunity to overtake the domain name. For that, an application of the transfer of the domain name is submitted to the registrar (i.e. a change of the owner of the domain). Look it up here.

  • The deletion of the domain is possible after 6 months have elapsed from the death.
  • In this case the registrar must control that the successor is the right person and submit valid authorised document. 
  • If the domain has not been transferred, EIF will delete the domain after 30 days have elapsed.
