Do we legally own our domain name?
The person who handles our website now has it listed under his name although we paid him. The website is our company's name. We have also paid him for all his services i.e. developement, maintance, hosting, etc. When we set this up we were not to web savy but now are. He is doing a poor job and may increase his monthly fee. How do we go about breaking ties with him and do we have legal grounds to the domain name since it's in his name i.e. if I go to bigdaddy.com it says he is the one to contact. Thanks!

He may own the ACCOUNT, but it's your business name, and the contact information is false if it's your business on the website... at the very least it should match your physical address... especially if you've got a digital signature from Verisign or Thawte... anything less is actually fraud...

Sounds like you gave him permission to buy a domain name. Take hee contract you have with him, get it to an atty, and have him write up the paperwork to get the domain registered to you if indeed you can.
