force9 hosted website still active (18 years later)

Hi,

 

18 years ago I helped my friend set up a web site hosted by force9 with a domain name.

 

Sadly he passed away in 2012, yesterday I found a brochure for his company and out of curiosity I tried the url "http://www.dringassociates.co.uk" and to my surprise found it is still alive and the domain is still being actively re-registered.

Who do I tell so you can close it down. I doubt I still have the login details as it was setup 18 years ago and wasn't changed after that.

 

Thanks

Best way to deal with this one would probably be to write to our postal address:

We've found the account now, thanks for letting us know.

Would you happen to be able to obtain a copy of the death certificate to email to us at postroom@plus.net?

Once we've received it we'll be able to look at closing the account and the domain/website.
