Domain Name Registrars Refund $0.03 ICANN Fee

I recently got an email from my domain name registrar GoDaddy, notifying me of refund payments on my domain name purchases. Since they already sell cheap domain names, a further refund surprised me. They had credited me for the ICANN Fee overpayment this year.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) recently agreed to reduce the domain registrar transaction fee from $.25 to $.22 and the benefit is being passed on to the domain name owners. They credited $.03/yr for each domain name registered or renewed dating back to July 1, 2006. However, the credit is only eligible for domains registered or renewed during the listed period.

Well its only a few cents, but is a good move by Godaddy to pass it on to the customers. Did your domain name registrar refund the ICANN Fee overpayment?
