Domain name registration correction

What happens if you register a domain and you realize you've misspelled or mistyped it? Is there a way to get to correct this with the registrars of your choice?
I am only aware of one accepting refunding domains during a so-called "grace" period which is 4 days from registration for a .com and varies for each tld.
I was wondering if the "big players" accept this?

Good questions. I'm not aware of registrars allowing grace periods so you're already one up on me. I guess one must just make sure one doesn't make a mistake with the name. But next time I'm in my Registar I'll check around. I'm almost certain I saw an option for cancelling the domain.

I have had this 2 years or so ago with name.com

I misspelled the name of a client en reported it within a hour. I got a compleet refund. I must say that at that time I owned about 2000 domains, all registered with them.

Thank you for getting back to me. The one in my sig allows that for many domains but it would have been nice if others did that too... Here is a list of domains and corresponding money back grace period.

Is this a new way of spam?
Why else do you have it in your signature?

You didnt even read my reply, as NAME.COM does that.

Haha ... by calling it spam, it got my attention Sander. So since I had some time on my hands at work this morning thought to check the "spam" site out 5.78USD for a dot.net domain seemed a small enough risk to take. AND *drum roll* it worked FLAWLESSLY! I had the domain up and running within minutes of the purchase. Enabled privacy (for free), added name servers, redirected it, and my new domain is "live".

Here are my personal likes about the "spam" site:

1. Everything is easy to find in the Website
2. It is easy to pay - PayPal - and if you don't have PayPal you can still pay with a credit card through PayPal
3. There are many options for paying, including having an Advance Account Balance. The latter looks very useful and interesting.
4. I still have to study the re-seller angle of it but that looks interesting too
5. The low price includes privacy - still have to check that out in whois.net. Whois.net still thinks it's for sale.
6. I just love that e-mail one gets instantly after the payment has gone through. Everything that is needed to set up the domain at one eye glance - no need to look for anything. In exactly the order I like it too.

Trust a fellow Canadian to bring us some quality spam for a change. :cool:

First of all thank you for trusting me with a free account.
Sorry to have sounded like spam, I can change my sig if it bothers you so much. I wouldn't have pointed anyone to my signature if I wasn't too lazy to write again... My intention was to offer the information that that service does offer a grace period as I felt it was implied by the previous post.
At most I would say I saw the opportunity to link to this thread and answer a question that may benefit others, plus I saw that in other big forums with no problem.
Just seeing the full half of the glass here.

But you contacted support, right? Cause I meant automatically. The system I use refunds everything when you cancel within that short period after registration if qualified (minus the one dollar fee).

Yes I did, but I got a full refund, not minus one dollar.

I see. Actually that dollar is charged by the registry authority, not by the reseller.
