Domain Name Impending Doom

A small organization registered a domain name several years ago, through Yahoo. They'd like to transfer it to a new registrar. However, the domain name was registered by someone who is no longer with the organization. That former employee registered using an email address which is no longer active, so no one (including former employee) can access the domain account or the email associated with it. Complicating things, the domain name will soon expire. How can the organization hold onto it?

Renewing My Russian Domain Name

I have a russian (.ru) domain name I registered through nic.ru. Since the last time I paid they changed their payment processor and none of my credit cards work with the new one. I've talked to them, they've talked to the processor, I've talked to my card companies, but I can't pay them. Do you pay for Russian domains or make credit card payments to Russia? How can I renew this domain? [more inside]

How to transfer a domain name?

I have a friend whose former boyfriend registered a domain and set up a site for her. I'd like to transfer the domain to her so I can change the DNS settings and move her to Google Apps. The registrar appears to be enom.com. I've sent several e-mails to the boyfriend and he responds that he's busy, etc. What can I do to get the domain in her name? He seems to have no problem with transferring the domain, he's just making it difficult and refuses to do anything. [more inside]

Just whois domain.me anyway?

Does anyone have any experience with "premium" .me domain registering. If I go to something like http://wash.me, I get a page that says it's a premium domain, owned by domain.me, and they may auction it off some day. I can apply for it, but basically have to tell them what I want to do with it. While I'm all in favor of cutting off domain squatting, I'm really not inclined to share what might be a brilliant business idea with them, at least without an NDA. [more inside]
