You CAN get a refund for your unwanted domain

20 Ways To Make $100 A Day Online

Three days ago I bought a domain "forextradertribune". I was thinking of testing the water in forex currency trading, just for grins and giggles. My gut instinct tells me that you need more luck than skill in that arena.

But I got cold feet two days later when I realized that the last thing I need right now is a time sucker that will likely spread my efforts too thin to make any headway with forex site especially if I did not intend to try forex trading myself.

Could I get a refund for the domain? I called my people at Domain Country to find out. (disclosure: Domain is a site I own that is actually affiliated with GoDaddy). I waited 5 minutes for a service rep after pushing # to eliminate the music.

As usual, the GoDaddy rep, Ben, was full of vim and vigor, ready to tackle my question. "Can I get a refund for a domain I bought two days ago?" I asked. "Yes, you can get a refund up to five days after purchase," replied Ben.

That was music to my ears, indeed. Ben processed the refund immediately. A little research indicates that the five day refund policy may be one imposed by ICANN. Check with your domain registrar about their policy.
