From Nominet: We will take the following action from 8 August 2006: 1. Any deletion of domains that we believe is not for the purpose of correcting mistakes, will be dealt with under our contract with tag holders. The sanctions may include reduced credit limits, suspension of tags or the cancellation of tags. 2. To help us identify potential abuse we will introduce a limit on the number of domain names that can be deleted. The limit will be 5 domain names or 5% of domain names that have yet to be invoiced (whichever is higher). Once this limit is reached all delete requests will be rejected and the domain names will be invoiced. Our analysis of the statistics for registration and deletion show that this new limit will not effect any tag holders who delete domain names registered in error. To be clear, the limit on deletions for practices such as domain tasting is zero. If we detect any uses of the delete operation other than the correction of registration errors, we will take action against the tag holder.
