ICANN Overpayment Refunded to Users by Registrars

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Recently ICANN agreed to lower a particular fee which they were charging to domain registrars from 25 cents to 22 cents per transaction. That means that for every domain you registered, your registrar has to pay ICANN 3 cents less. Registrars are now rebating that 3 cents, retroactive to July of 2006, back to their customers. So check it out!

This is what GoDaddy sent to its domain customers:



Good news. You have been credited $.03/yr for each domain name you registered or renewed dating back to July 1, 2006* — $2.01 has been placed into your Go Daddy® account with this customer number: 8675309

Your in-store credit will be applied to your purchases at GoDaddy.com® until it’s gone or for up to 12 months, whichever comes sooner. If you have any questions, please contact a customer service representative at 480-505-8877.

As always, thank you for being a Go Daddy customer.
