Each provider sets a fee for filing the complaint based on the number of panelists and the number of domain names subject to the UDRP. The fees as of April 24, 2001, ranged from as low as $950 for a single panel single domain name to $6,000 for a three panel dispute involving five domain names.
When the dispute involves a large number of domain names, the fee must be determined by consulting with the provider before filing the complaint. The provider's fees paid by the party that files the complaint unless the domain name owner requests a three member panel, in which case the two parties are each responsible for one half of the fee. Attorney's fees and costs are in addition to the complaint filing fees payable to the provider.
