I am a member of a forum. The current owner of the forum does not want to run it any longer. He wishes to transfer the forum to me. The former owner does not wish to reveal his name to me and I don't want my name revealed to him. Is it possible to do this?
We are going to migrate the server, by backing up the database and associated files. I am going to purchase my own web hosting and migrate it to the new host. This is easy to do while retaining privacy.
The problem is, I have no idea how to retain privacy with the transfer of the domain name. I suppose we could just wait for the name to expire and re-register, but there is a chance someone else could swipe the name. I would expect that the domain name owner would have to give a specific name of the person he wishes to transfer the domain name to.
