Domain Name Warehousing • GNSO Council Delete Task Force - a council organized under ICANN specific 3 modes of warehousing were identified: • The registrant allows the domain name to lapse, but registrar fails to delete the domain name during the grace period, resulting in a paid renewal to the registry. The registrar subsequently assumes registration of the domain name. • The registrant purchases the domain name through fraud and the registrar assumes registration of the name to resell in order to minimize losses. • The registrar registers the domain in its own name outright.

  7. Domain Name • Domain Tasting & Domain Kiting • Domain tasting is the practice of a registrant using the five-day "grace period" (the Add Grace Period) at the beginning of the registration to test the marketability of the domain. • Domain Kiting is the process of deleting a domain name during the five-day grace period and immediately re-registering it for another five-day period. This process is repeated n number of times with the end result of having the domain registered without ever actually paying for it.
