    I already see a BHW service in 3-5 years providing domains like such and claiming having 2x more power over regular domains :D

    Tag line, "The Previous Owner May be Dead But the Backlinks Are Still Alive!"

    Buy domains that have no chance of the owner reclaiming them because you can't take it with you!

    *Disclaimer - we do not take custom orders so do not ask us to off someone so you can have their domains.

    What if you didn't know the previous domain owner is dead? Would you double check to make sure you're not buying an expired domain a dead person used to own?

    I was in the same situation a couple of months back. Good domain, was doing some research and found that the owner had passed away.
    The domain was for a blog he was clearly very passionate about and so I left it.. Didn't feel right to kind of exploit / monetize a passion project someone once put so much time and effort into.

    Normally I'd buy it but this was a different situation

    Don't worry OP, I will be launching my Domain Exorcism Service in a couple of months. In the meantime just place some garlic, salt and holy water around your server and you should be fine.

    Registering it, although you know he died, would offend against a proper sense of reverence. That's just my personal opinion. The fact that you didn't instantly register it, but started this thread, shows me you a thinking the same way.
