digital immortality -- what to do when I die

I decided not to become a writer in the traditional sense, but to develop what in retrospect may be called virtual poetry:
see ../../site/write
you may also look at https://www.facebook.com/aeliens to see some more recent examples,
these as well as the whole collection as for example under http://create.eliens.net and http://serious.eliens.net
where originally developed for educational purposes, but more and more became to embody my view on things, see http://ask.eliens.net
and I consider the whole collection of material as what one may call my digital immortality, hence the question: what to do when I die ...

From the indications below, it should be obvious what to do, make sure the bills are paid, despite my dislike of http://money.eliens.net

two domains are of the utmost importance: (see below):
-- virtualpoetry.tv -- hosted by mijndomein.nl
-- eliens.net -- managed by cscglobal.com

mijndomein.nl -- contact: support@mijndomein.nl  -- payment is automatic from ING account, approx 60 euro/year
cscglobal.com -- contact: dbs-globalservice@cscglobal.com  -- payment is by yearly invoice, approx 43 euro/year

I owe sincere gratitude to Tia Mitchell,  since she played a crucial role in resolving the problems incurred by a missed invoice, David J. Manley III, for his support in the process of deciding whether to transfer eliens.net to another company, and his assistence in restoring access to the cscglobal domainmanager, 
and last but not least Evan Boggs, who played an essential role in setting up the subdomain structure of eliens.net!

please make sure that the invoice(s) for cscglobal are paid in time!

motivation for maintaining eliens.net:

as an explanation for my urgency, I want to briefly indicate the reasons for my urgent request to support me in keeping my account secure, that is to help me arrange some form of automatic payment so that the existence of the domain eliens.net and its sub-domains will be garantueed for the coming (undefinite number of) years.
My website (eliens.net and its subdomains) has been elected by the Dutch Royal Library as valuable digital heritage and is archived on their site. The domain eliens.net and its subdomains is an index on this site, which is partially archived at eliens.virtualpoetry.tv which I have set up over the last years, with great support from Evan from your support department (in CC).
This site in a way consitutes my digital immortality and is used, so to speak as promotion for myself, that is my current professional activity (as a retired professor in creative technology / new media), as you can see from my recent facebook posts on https://www.facebook.com/aeliens Hopefully this brief summary clarifies my motivation to set up a simple form of automatic payment so that the index to my site provided by eliens.net and its subdomains is garantueed even after, yes, my dead, without bothering my wife or children with the details of arranging such payments.
