The End of Domain Tasting
AGP Deletes Decrease 99.7%
A REPORT released by ICANN shows that the so-called practice of “Domain Tasting,” has all but been eliminated as a result of a solution developed only one year ago.
At its peak, the practice of speculatively registering domain names for very short periods of time (less than 5 days) saw millions of dot-com domains, as one example, registered and returned in one month alone.
However, following recent policy changes by ICANN after extensive consultations with the Internet community, there has been a 99.7% decline in domain tasting across all registries that have implemented the new domain tasting policy, according to the new ICANN report.
