Hi guys,

I’d like to reg a domain by registrar that uses a trustee service.

The registrar buy the domain on behalf of the registrant (me), using a trustee based in the extension country.

So the registrant (me) retains the beneficial ownership, but (i suppose) not the legal ownership, that belongs to the registrar.

If it’s the case, can the registrant resell the domain without the registrar permission or he can only uses/develops the domain name?

Maybe the topic could be useful also for the other domainers…

Thx for your support 🤗🤗🤗

I assume there is some type of TOS that covers this. It is impossible to answer otherwise.

Thx for your tip
I don't see what's the reason you have to do this. Or is this just your imagination?
Just let your wife buy the name for you instead and everything will be fine.
Thank you John! I just talked to my partner..😉
 
Even if it is...the idea of a trustee buying it, with you having the right to it, but potentially not the legal ownership of it? Sounds a bit dicey to me, IMO
Unless there is a need to do this, for instance you don't meet the citizenship/resident requirements to register a domain, it is pointless and only looking for issues IMO.

For all intents and purposes, the registrant (whoever is listed in WHOIS) owns the rights to the domain.

Under your scenario where is the trustee listed? I assume as the registrant.

I am not sure what the registry requirements are for that extension. It is possible that you need a trustee if you don't qualify under existing requirements such as citizenship, residency, business location, etc.

I would not use a trustee unless it is required. There is no reason unless you have to.
If you have to, then you don't have much choice.

High quality domain …
In fairness, there is not much demand for .SK.

NameBio shows (24) reported sales in the last 15 years. There have only been (2) reported sales since 2014.

It is not likely to be a very valuable domain to worry that much about.
