Hard: On January 25, 2012 the United States Department of Commerce approved a proposal to modify the add delete grace (AGP) policy for .us. This was done to address the problem of abuse of the add delete grace period. The new policy restricted the number of domains that may be deleted for credit during the 5 day add grace period. Registrars would be permitted to delete for credit no more than the greater of 50 domains or 10% of their net monthly adds during each month. Starting April 1, Dynadot began charging a grace deletion fee of $1.00 for deleting US domains. Also grace deletions of US domains were placed under a 10% quota, so successful US grace deletions were no longer guaranteed.
