Dear all
Can we move this forward. I suggest that we nominate somebody (Richard or
myself or XXXX) to hold any CIDOC domain names that we may gather from time
to time and once this is done Georg transfers cidoc-crm.org to that
nominated person.
I hope that this plan is OK with all parties

So its the domain cidoc-crm.org that we are talking about?  I see that 
that domain forwards to http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/.

At present, the only domain name CIDOC has is a sub-domain provided by 
our web host: cidoc.mediahost.org.  This obviously doesn't require 
separate registration, so there isn't really a precedent for asking them 
to look after the registration of this one.  I can't see them being at 
all keen.

What would be the best thing to do?  As I understand it, domain 
registration is to a named individual, not to a corporate entity 
(especially not to a corporate entity - CIDOC - with no official 
existence!).  This brings us back to the original problem of trying to 
ensure long-term stability for the domain name.  I'm happy to have the 
domain transferred to me individually if that's thought to be a good 
idea (I maintain a scattering of domains for other reasons); or maybe we 
should choose someone who has just come on to the Board - like Nick - on 
the grounds that they are likely to be involved for a longer period.
