As we understand it, .it domains require trustees if an individual or company is not EU based.
We have found a variety of .it domain trustee services on the web. It is challenging to get a sense of which of these companies are businesses that will stay in business, are reliable, and trustable.
On the other hand, we have colleagues and friends in the EU who we would trust to become trustees for our domain for our company's work. Could they serve as a trustee? Reading the restrictions, we don't see an explicit mention of this approach.
Is it possible for individuals or companies to simply hire one of these people as a trustee and list their contact information as the whois contact for the domain for a .it domain?
Do we need to transfer the control of the domain to the trustee as well - or is keeping control of our domain registrar account okay in this circumstance?
(For example, as an aside and along those lines, we are wondering how reddit.com did it with redd.it which refers back to the .com.)
