Even worse is when the customer purchases the domain, ends up not paying
for whatever reason, and THEN getting another ISP to transfer the domain
to them...

Hi.

I would like to have some feedback on an issue that may affect some of
you: 
Money lost due to unpaid domain registration fees.

Although we charge up-front for domain registrations, there are certain 
circumstances in which we end up with domains being registered but not
paid 
for - mostly due to mis-understandings or bad-faith registrants (ie
credit 
card charge-backs, etc). The figures seem to revolve around 0.5% of 
registrations - which doesn't seem like a lot, but it adds up quickly.

It would be illegal and highly unpractical for us to try to sell these 
domains to recover the out-of-pocket expenses.

What I would like to see is a way of recycling these domains. A new
policy 
clause that will allow to return these domains back (like in the free 
cancellation period) on the grounds that a domain has not been paid for.

This would protect retailers at no real cost to the other parties in the

domain chain.


Kind regards,
