What is a closeout?
These are domains that did not receive bids during the expired auction and are now being offered at a reduced price.
This pricing structure is the fixed cost plus the renewal cost (applied during checkout).
This fixed cost decreases every day that the domain is not acquired:
Day 1 Fixed Cost: $30
Day 2 Fixed Cost: $15
Day 3 Fixed Cost: $5
This program does not require a bid system and these domains are first come, first serve.
To participate, first create a Dynadot account if you haven't already. We require at least $5 account spending before you can participate. You can prepay $5 into your account and use the account credit to pay for your closeout order.
NOTE: The closeout may be cancelled if the original registrant renews the domain. Due to the nature of closeouts, payments are also required immediately. Otherwise you risk the chance of closeout domains being purchased by someone else or getting cancelled.
Closeout domain has a 15 day lock. At the end of the 15 days, the lock status will automatically be removed. While in this status, the domain cannot be unlocked, transferred to a different registrar, or moved into another Dynadot account. However, you can set the name servers for the domain.
