Is the owner of the domain willing to "point" the domain to a
different IP address with his domain registrar? Or is he thinking he
would transfer the domain lease to gnucash or some other project?
Here's the first part of the "WHO IS" database search on OFXHOME.COM:
Whois Server Version 2.0
Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
for detailed information.
Domain Name: OFXHOME.COM

Sponsoring Registrar IANA ID: 146
Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com

The rest of the info is in the database, contact, etc. So,
conceivably, if the domain pointed to an (extra?) IP that's already
one of the servers for gnucash.org, that might work. Then the
question becomes how does the site work; is it similar to a git
repository, or mercurial, or the gnucash download site at
sourceforge? I don't know to run any of those, and I don't use ofx
lookups for the bank (I download the ofx files from the institution).
But I do know something about the domain leasing and the dns system
(not too much, but probably enough). I use Moniker for domain
leasing, and they've been very good at transferring and figuring out
domains. I also use redundant domain resolvers (GoDaddy is quite good
for that in North America).
Let me know and I'll do some digging.
