What do I do if the registrant of a domain name has passed away?

Back to all questions and answers

If a .dk domain is registered to a deceased person, it can only be administrated by the heir of the deceased, who can choose to transfer or cancel the registration.

In this case, we ask the heir to submit a probate certificate. If there are several heirs, powers of attorney from other heirs must be forwarded.

As well as the information in the probate court certificate, we also need the email address of the heir who is to take over the right to the domain name.

The documentation can be submitted to us on https://punktum.dk/en/customer-service

Once the correct documentation has been received, we will insert the person's email address as contact for the domain name. In this way, the heir can access the administration of the domain name on our self-service portal, where the domain must be terminated or transferred.
