Sad to hear. We did some business together in the past and may not have agreed always but he was a remarkable addition to the community.

Condolences to his beloved ones.

Very sad to know the sudden demise of Mr Rizwan. Great Domainer, dynamic, ambitious and hardworking. I hope someone responsible in his family take care of his domaining assets. May God give his family utmost patience. May his soul rest in peace. Inna lillaahi wa inna ilaihi rajwoon. (“Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Allah we shall return.”)
Ameen...

Actually, his domain Yogurts is at auction at GD with 30 mins left.
Hmmm, somebody needs to get a hold of his family and renew it, FAST.

Peace,

Can you please reach out to the family? Allowing valuable domains to expire in this situation would be a tragedy.

It's reg'd at enom.
Hopefully they did the GD thing and put it up before redemption and the family can still recoup it.

I may have gotten this wrong.
Now I'm not sure if he owned it or not.
I thought I saw it on Rooted, but it may have been another site I was looking at.
Sorry.

Peace,
Kenny

I found out last night. It is really a shame and shocking. We are doing what we can at GoDaddy. Thanks for the heads up. I am trying to get his wife's contact info.

I looked into that one specifically. It is coming to GD from Enom. We cant see the WHOIS on that because it is private. Anything we know is Riz's domains we are not selling and are doing what we can to help.

To be fair we are trying to do what we can, but we are scrambling and trying to put it all together. There may be accounts he has using another name, email, a business name, etc or domains coming in from another company that we don't see ownership on. We are not and would not sell any domains of his on purpose.

I know this is not the right spot to go into this but it is really important to have a plan for all of us when we die to take care of our domain assets. Somewhere listing all our accounts and passwords for our heirs and someone who knows how to manage domains. Almost all of us have domains at multiple companies, with sometimes even several accounts at each company and it can get messy how we acquire domains and where they wind up. I know I can personally do a better job myself of this.

We are doing everything we can to try and figure it out on our side. I actually only came on NP today to see my message history with him to make sure I can identify all his accounts with us the best I can.

Very sad news. I also had a couple of domain deals with him and spoke with him a few times on a social media venue. He was always providing great advice to domain investors. The best to his family...

Riz was an amazing guy, he came out of nowhere, and shared his amazing sales and names with us. For a guy whose first language was not English, to come and educate many of us on first world English domains, and good ones also. He put in the work, I think he deserves to be remembered, it would be great if we could all contribute to some kind of namescon award in his honor, maybe for a successful first year newcomer in the space award, in his name. I’m sure many people he helped here would be happy to contribute, and get the ball rolling. He deserves to be remembered, as he was always willing to share, and help everyone. Maybe namepros can give him his PRO badge back also.
