I'm just wondering what happens to a domain name once a company closes and doesn't pay their host?[nbsp][nbsp]What comes up when the domain name is accessed and how long will the domain name "belong" to that company?[nbsp][nbsp]I'd like to try selling a particular domain name, but am unsure of where or what to do besides auctioning it off.[nbsp][nbsp]Could I park the domain at FQ and say something like, "This domain is for sale...blah blah blah"...any ideas?[nbsp][nbsp]TIA!

My understanding is that the "Domain Name" is owned by the registar, whether it's an individual or a company.[nbsp][nbsp]If the registar is the defunct company then it still belongs to them until it's renewal time comes up. Any creditors or investors would have a possible right to the name as a way of satisfying outstanding debt.
As far as continuing to allow the page to be viewed, if your the host and you have not been paid, then either take it completely down or make it a re-direct to another one of your sites.
If your the registar then you could put it up for sale wherever you wanted to.[nbsp][nbsp]E-Bay has a section just for that I believe??
Of course that's just my understanding and not necessarily
Have a Good One
