Grab a Spoon! Let's Do Some Domain Tasting!

Here at Dynadot, we're proud to be one of the few registrars to support domain tasting. What is domain tasting you ask? Domain tasting allows you to try - or 'taste' - a domain before you decide to keep it. People often choose to taste a domain to test out its traffic to see if it is worth their investment. If they decide not to keep the domain, they can try to 'return' the domain for credit.

Unfortunately, not all domain extensions allow domain tasting, but fortunately many do including the popular .COM, .NET, and .ORG. Most domain extensions that do allow domain tasting offer a grace period of between 2-5 days to taste the domain. This allows the user time to bond with their domain name and hopefully decide that it really is the one for them. If, instead, the domain owner ends up with a bad taste in their mouth from that domain name, they can submit a grace deletion request.

A grace deletion request does not guarantee that you can return - or in this case delete - your domain. Some domain extensions have a limit of 10%, which is based on the number of domains we register per month versus the number of domains we grace delete each month. You can check out our current deletion rate on our grace deletion page to see how likely it is for you to be able to delete your domain. You'll also notice that some domain extensions have a grace deletion fee, which will be taken out of the credit you receive in your Dynadot account.

Check out our grace deletion page for more info and then get started by registering a domain name you'd like to taste today! Then pick up your spoon again as we give you three more reasons to do some tasting this Cinco de Mayo weekend...

Raspberry Margarita Recipe Cinco de Mayo

Sauza® Raspberry Margarita

9 ounces of Sauza® Silver Tequila
3 ounces of Dekuyper® Razzmatazz
24 ounces Margarita Mix
Lime wedge to garnish

Combine the ingredients without ice and shake vigorously. Then just pour the mixture over ice in a 14 ounce glass, garnish and enjoy the raspberry sensation.

Easy Guacamole Recipe Cinco de Mayo

Easiest Amazing Guacamole

2 (6 ounce) avocados, pitted, peeled, and mashed
1/4 teaspoon coarse garlic salt

Stir together avocado and garlic salt until smooth and evenly combined. To keep guacamole from turning brown, leave one of the avocado pits in until ready to serve.

Churros Recipe Cinco de Mayo


1 cup water
2 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon sale
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 quarts oil for frying
1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.

2. Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag. Fry until golden; drain on paper towels.

3. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Hopefully we've now made you hungry thanks to and hopefully you'll grab a spoon and have a great Cinco de Mayo!
