Last Week's Answers


Easy: Briefly explain a domain's lifecycle.
Reward: 10% Off an Order (Max $50)

Answer: Here is an example of a domain's lifecycle using 7 steps from registration to deletion. For simplicity, we will say that our domain name was registered on January 1, 2015. 1) January 1, 2015: The domain is registered. 2) March 1, 2015: After 60 days the domain can now be transferred to another registrar. 3) November 1, 2015, most registrars start sending renewal notices around this time. 4) January 1, 2016, the domain has expired; most registrars will HOLD the domain, which means your website and email will no longer work. 5) February 9, 2016, after 40 days most registrars delete the domain. To get the domain back, you must restore it. 6) March 11, 2016, after 30 days, the domain can no longer be restored. 7) March 16, 2015, after 5 days, the domain is dropped from the central registry and can now be registered by anyone.

Yes, you can get discount by buying domain names in bulk only if you prepay a minimum amount above a threshold spending level per year. If you prepay $500 for a year you would be eligible for Bulk Pricing and if you prepay $5000 per year then you would be eligible for Super Bulk Pricing. You can checkout all the pricing details here: https://www.dynadot.com/company/prices_bulk.html
