ICANN looking at keeping domain name registration fee

Abusive “tasting” of potentially lucrative domain names should be stopped immediately, ICANN board members said in a Jan. 23 resolution made public this week and is considering a proposal to keep the annual fee it charges registries even if the domain name is forfeited during the 5-day grace period.  ICANN aims to discourage the practice because the imposition of a fee would make it a lot more expensive for domain tasters.
