I was not sure where to put this.
Anyway I own wisconsinreefsociety.org and it is about to expire. I am one of the original members of WI reefsociety and helped start it. I think the only original member left is Rick Boyd and he would remember me. Anyhow we used to host the website and actually still own the domain. It expires the 29th.

I am not looking for anything for it but we have been paying for it for years and want to know what you guys want to do with it, otherwise we are just going to let it expire?

I just hate for it to go somewhere else if you guys still want it.

Let me know either way..

I will double check what actually needs to be done with my brother. I have never switched a domain to anyone myself.
I do not think it costs anything , I believe we just transfer it to who ever hosts your site or who ever WRS want to own it. Obviously someone will have to handle the dns. Who ever handles the website/forums now should know.
You pick up the yearly fees through like godaddy which vary by how many domains you own and how long to buy them for..I think it is like 14.00 a year..

Like I said no big deal if you want it to expire, You can also pick it up after it expires too if you ever want to later unless someone else registers or buys it first. I do not see why anyone else would though.

You have new domain so there really is no need for it. Sometimes it is nice to own any domain that is associated with WRS and pointed to your website to make it easier to find.

We just host websites. I do not remember the reason WRS left Synergy our company. I think you had a issue with someone in WRS who handled the actual website.

I was no longer a WRS member at that time.

Thank you for letting us know!

Yes you can have an Organization own the Domain I do this all the time when I setup sites for Clients. Depending on where the site is hosted like I use GoDaddy as you can use a Forwarder and GoDaddy can just Handle the DNS and everything for the site. If both Domains are registered with GoDaddy this is very easy and the only Cost would be $14 a year to keep it its worth it to just keep it. I never seen good things happen by letting a site expire. Its very easy to do and if you need help I can help.
