A CDE Definition
Continuously cancelling and re-registering the same domain name. Domain kiting takes advantage of the five day grace period a registrant has after registering a domain name. Domain kiting is done to draw revenue from ads without paying for the domain registration. See domain tasting.
Trying out a new Internet domain name for five days, which is the grace period in which a registrant can choose to cancel the name and get a full refund of the registration fee. Domain tasting involves setting up home pages with ads and registering many domain names that are typically misspellings of a popular site or expired URLs. The home pages are tracked, and the ones that draw sufficient traffic and click-throughs within the first couple of days are kept, while the rest are cancelled. See URL hijacking, domain warehousing and domain kiting.
