Say I have some friends that are considering starting to learn how to make websites, so I temporarily hosted their accounts or to let them play around and learn how it works.
Well after that one of them decides to get a host, so I obviously suggest dreamhost and tell them I can get them $50 off, I let them wonder around my panel for a while to demo it and they really liked it.
Well I delete the domain from my account and now it can never be used unless he pays the difference in the promo code price? I told him to just cancel and go with another host, this policy seems very counter-intuitive to me. Am I just missing the boat here? You are going to lose a customer that could potentially bring you many more.
