I know lots of people who “taste” domains — it’s nothing out of the ordinary or evil, you simply buy a domain because of its potential traffic then later delete the name (within 4 days) if traffic levels/PPC income don’t make sense to keep it.
When you DO ask for a refund, registrars give you different refund amounts. Here’s a list of the ones I know personally:
- GoDaddy – Full Refund
- Moniker – $1 Fee
- Dynadot – $0.20 Fee
If you know of others please let us know!
