This week we have our usual three fun questions and prizes, but to make the last game more interesting, we have added in a bonus question too! If you need a refresher on the rules, check out our game rules and regulations and then play this round! Good luck with the game, and make sure to stay tuned for more fun activities coming soon!

Last Week's Answers


Easy: Do you have to wait until a new TLD is launched to place an order?
Reward: 10% Off Domain Transfer (.COM, .NET, or .ORG)

Answer: No! You do not have to wait until a new TLD is launched to place an order. We offer new TLD preorders, which allow you to try and register the domain name you want right when the new TLD launches.

Medium: What is grace deletion aka domain tasting?
Reward: 50% Off 1 Domain Registration (.COM, .NET, .ORG, or .XYZ)

Answer: Grace deletion or domain tasting allows registrants to "return" an unwanted domain name. This allows people to "taste" a domain by testing its traffic or simply seeing if it's the right fit for what they want. We are one of the few registrars that supports this.

Hard: Explain how you can complete your domain transfer to Dynadot if your domain is locked?
Reward: 1 Free Domain Registration (.COM, .NET, .ORG, or .XYZ)

Answer: To complete your domain transfer to Dynadot if your domain is locked, you would need to contact your current domain registrar and ask them how to unlock your domain. There are a few reasons why your domain transfer might be locked: 1) Your domain is locked with your current registrar, and you would need to contact them to find out how to turn off the transfer lock. 2) Your domain is a newly registered domain name within its first 60 days of registration. 3) Your domain is a newly transferred domain and cannot be transferred within 60 days of the original transfer. Once you determine why your domain is locked, you can follow our domain transfer steps to finish your domain transfer!

HARD To set up DNS for your domain, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "Manage" from the "Domains" drop-down menu. Check the box next to your domain name(s) and click on the "Name Servers" icon. Click on the "DNS" tab. Select the "Record Type" from the drop-down menu, then enter in the IP Address or Target Host of your web server in the first text box. If you have an Email Server or MX Record available for your domain email, enter in the hostname and the distance (otherwise known as priority) in the subsequent text boxes. You can also specify subdomain A records, CNAME records, SRV records, email aliases (in the "Email Forwarding Settings" box), and a TXT record. Click on the "Save DNS" button to save your changes.

Easy Question: Smart folders give you a way to group your domains. With our smart domain folders, you can more easily set Whois records, name server settings, renew options, and transfer locks for a group of domains. Source: https://www.dynadot.com/community/help/question/what-are-smart-folders
