There is a web site of the organization. The site has a domain name. Who does it belong to?
The organization or the one who developed and maintains this web site?


The domain name belongs to its coordination center (registrar), which receives it from ICANN. The Center delegates the rights to accept applications for registration to certain offices, who do this and for money grant the right to use the domain for a certain period to a certain person - a physicist or a lawyer who has signed a contract.
The right to use the domain belongs to the one who paid for it. If the site was made by a freelancer or a third-party office, it does not in any way affect the rights of the one who paid for the domain and does not have any rights to the domain name.

Simply put - who pays and has the details from the personal account, that's the owner.
No sane freelancer or web studio will register a domain for themselves if they do not have a goal to blackmail the company later.
