need for formal abandonment of the domain may be due to the desire to knowingly exclude any possible legal consequences. Since the domain can be used to host a wide variety of materials, including those that may fall under existing legislation, abandoning the domain name will allow you to have full immunity from any claim from the date of its implementation.$ But for everything that happened on the resource from the moment of registration of the domain until the day of abandonment of it, the former owner continues to be responsible.

This means that in order to refuse you need not only to write a statement to the company registering the domain, but also to provide copies of the documents confirming your identity and, accordingly, the right to own domain. The form for refusal to register is usually on the site of the domain name registrar, you only need to download it and fill out.

In practice, it is enough for the owner of a domain name to simply remove the site from hosting, after which it can be safely forgotten. If the site that you no longer need is quite a good project and has a good number of visitors, it is more correct to try to sell it. The specific price of a resource depends on the level of its popularity. Sometimes you can sell and just a domain name if it has a sonically catchy name. A good domain name on average costs from $1000 and up.
