ICANN Says "Domain Tasting" Almost Eliminated

ICANN is claiming to have nearly eradicated the practice of "domain tasting" – registering domain names for short periods of time to see if online ads placed on them have money making potential.

ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) claimed the practice had been enabled by a loophole in domain registration that granted a five-day grace period after a domain was registered in which they could return it for free.

ICANN claims its efforts led to a 99.7% decline in domain tasting for all registries that implemented the new policy.
