You should do the transfer of domain, hosting etc. That will completely divorce the individual person from the site. Many websites are owned by persons other than the businesses that are promoted on the front end of the internet but were there to be a claim for defamation, for example, the owner of the site could be pulled into the action. As long as the website clearly states to the world that the site is for the particular limited company then you should not have any problem but I would take the additional step of putting everything in the company name. Hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
A website owner is a publisher. If the website publishes defamatory material then the owner as publisher could also be sued in the same way that a newspaper publisher could be sued for an article written by a journalist.
The company details should be clear on the website. Name, registered office and company number.
