A friend has a company and has (many years ago) bought up some domains.


I would like them to get name2.com and name3.com. name3.com is available so that's no problem. name2.com is taken but is doesn't actually resolve to a valid web site.

So I'm wondering if he can approach the current owner and request it be released/transferred to him. Is it just a case of contacting the admin email address, as published on whois?

That would be a first step, but I very much doubt you would get a response. Your email will likely just be deleted/sent straight to the spam folder.

I assume it doesn't list a phone number for the registered owner?

The fact the owner has no website doesn't mean too much, as a lot of people just use domain names for email services.

When does the domain expire?
