Hard: How does Dynadot DNS work?
Reward: 1 Free Domain Registration (.COM, .NET, .ORG, or .XYZ)

Answer: Dynadot DNS is a domain name server setting in which you use our name server software to resolve the IP address for your domain. In this case, however, you are the person setting the IP address for your domain and your mail servers for your domain. Therefore, the IP address you enter will need to be the IP address of a web server that will respond to web requests for your domain.

Hard : Basically, once you set your domain to auto-renew and select a payment method for your auto-renewed domains, Dynadot system will automatically renew your domain 30 days before its expiration date. More info at : https://www.dynadot.com/community/help/question/what-is-domain-auto-renew

Easy: Spoofing is when someone places an email address (which may be fake) they do not have access to in the "From" field to cover up his own email address. This commonly occurs in spam messages.

Medium: ICANN stands for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. Its purpose is to coordinate the Domain Name System (DNS), Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain name system, and root server system functions. Basically ICANN is the highest authority overseeing the world's Internet systems. Source: https://www.dynadot.com/community/blog/2012/11/icann-accreditation.html
