Ye, but you might wanna make sure and wait for another member to confirm this as I am not sure. Better yet, why don't you call the 123 reg guys because they can give you an answer better...
X, you make a good arguement, although it's nice to have an option to return unwanted names, but I agree there should be some kind of cap rule as Justin has mentioned...
I have "tasted"..
I love it and wish I could take advantage of it more..
Screw any refund policy...don't grant one period. Even if you manage to typo a name when registering it, it's $7! Live with it! I just think as long as there's any kind of refund policy, even if it's just partial, there will be ways for people with money to abuse it and get richer and people without money to suffer from it...
Actually there is, The big drop catchers, you know who they are, register almost the complete drop list daily, taste them, then you can find them available in a couple to few days, why would I want to taste a domain, that has already been tasted? And they are able to refunded thousands of dollars a day, for domains they do no want, They aren't spending hardley anything, reg fee for names they auction off at a min of amount of dollars, They are making millions, and spending very little, just reg fee per HostGator name...
$7 is a very small loss compared to the common $XXXX+ marketing loss by the previous owners of the domain. Good topic!..
Most people who make a mistake only do so on one or a few domains. If they limited refunds to say 10 per day per registrant, it would put up a fairly good roadblock to the large tasters..
Vigilante approach - If a hacker group would create a program to send some false traffic to all new registered domains for about the first 5 days, the tasters wouldn't be able to determine which to keep or drop and would spend all their money keeping domains worth nothing..
Last I checked, one of ICANN's committees has already prepared a report on.
This subject. Time will tell what'll happen next..
IMHO it won't completely stop all those who are into "domain tasting" even if.
Some kind of fee is finally imposed, especially those who have "perfected" this.
