Danny and all,
I would like to do some research to see whether this is true or not. It
would seem to me that this could not be true for the registrars that
have large tasters as their clients. Or is this fee "waived" for
tasters, but charged to legitimate deletion?
We certainly should look into this further. I for one am interested in
the results as currently none of the gTLD registries have any such
restocking fee (with the limited exception of .org -- under those
special circumstances). I am concerned that registrars are out their
calling this a registry fee when that is not true.

Another "fact" revealed in Modern Domainer magazine:
"Most registrars charge a deletion fee that ranges
anywhere from $.05 to $1 per domain, and while they
carry fancy names such as "registry deletion fee" and
"restocking fee" the fact of the matter is that there
is no fee imposed by the registry to delete a
As registrars financially benefit from domain tasting,
perhaps we could have Staff determine the degree of
such benefit by asking each registrar how much they
charge for providing these services (and then
multiplying that value times the number of recorded
deletes per registrar).
That would certainly serve to reasonably quantify the
accrued financial benefit enjoyed by one segment of
the community (and would constitute "factually
supported information" that we are calling for in one
of the latter RFI questions).
