I started a thread about what happens after we die? and in the spirit of death and domains it made me think of another question. What happens to the domain names of dead people? I mean specifically what is the technical and legal process directly after a domain registrants death for things like ownership? Do you lose the domain name upon your death because the whois becomes invalid? Since domain names are difficult to value how would they be divided up in an estate with multiple benefactors?

I've got a block of stone engraved with all my registrars and their passwords, hidden under a wooden floor plank in my kitchen.

Told my wife, "This is where you go when I pass. All will be revealed".

Dam inconveniant though, when I have to do password change.

Wife is trademark from me.
