We operate a limit on the number of registrations that can be deleted by registrars to prevent 'domain tasting' which we prohibit.
Domain tasting is the practice of registering domain names, assessing revenue generation potential and, if they create an insufficient return, deleting the domain names before the registry requests payment.
If we detect any uses of the delete operation on our automatic system other than the correction of registration errors, we will take action against the registrar.
Deleting domains registered in error
We provide registrars with the facility to delete domain names registered in error before they have been invoiced. This allows for example, domain names containing spelling mistakes to be deleted and then re-registered with the correct spelling. Domain names deleted in this way do not incur a registration fee.
