This question already has an answer here:
I am writing to ask about a domain name I wish to own. I have contacted the domain owner (by performing a WhoIS search) by email and have not received a reply. I have tried contacting him for over a year.
I have also contacted the domain registrar (
namecheap.com) where the domain is registered, and they have told me that they cannot contact him on my behalf, and told me to contact him using the email address.
Are there any ways of securing this domain name for myself? I have waited for it to expire but unfortunately, it automatically renewed!
