We had a website produced a few years ago with a .ORG domain name. The site hadn't grown with our needs, so we've now got a new .co.uk site.
Our intention was to transfer the .org address to the new site on completion.
Our new site is to go live soon, but the original .ORG site has gone offline (hosting expired I believe, as the expiry date for the .ORG is in 2012) and we now discover that the .ORG domain name is registered to the web designer and not to anyone in our organisation.
The WHOIS information gives us the technical contact as discountasp.net.
What are the steps we can take here? Our primary concern is getting the name servers changed (the current .ORG address goes nowhere) and ultimately we need to transfer ownership.
The organisation in question is a community, non-profit organisation, so our pockets are not deep.
