Company to provide cash and coupons to class.
The settlement provides coupons or cash depending on what type of customer you are. If you searched for a domain name at Network Solutions while it used its reservation practice and subsequently registered it during the same session, you will receive a $6 coupon per domain toward a future purchase. If you searched for a domain name and returned within 4 days to register it, you will receive $9.91 cash. Presumably many of the people who registered the domains during the same session decided to do so on their own and were not forced to because Network Solutions “reserved” the domain name.
$9.91 seems like a low number given that Network Solutions charges about $25 more per registration than many competitors.
About 50,000 people fall into the “cash” class, meaning that about that many people were forced to register their desired domain name at Network Solutions because the company reserved the domain name immediately upon their search.
