Death blow dealt to domain tasters

If Google's recent stand against against domain tasters wasn't enough to stop domain tasters in their tracks, ICANN just finished the job. The ICANN board just passed the following motion to end Domain Tasting,

“THEREFORE, the Board resolves to encourage ICANN’s budgetary process to include fees for all domains added, including domains added during the AGP, and encourages community discussion involved in developing the ICANN budget, subject to both Board approval and registrar approval of this fee.”

This policy is expected to go into effect when the new budget is approved, and that process typically happens in the summer.

Adieu, domain tasters!
