You can change your forum name from within your account.

How do I change my forum name?

Check out the Dynadot Forums to ask us questions, find out information, and more! When you post on our forums, you are using your forum name, not your username. By default, your forum name includes your initials, city, and country. If you want to change your forum name, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Info" from the left-side menu bar and click "Account Settings" in the drop-down.
  3. Scroll down to the "Community Options" section.
  4. You can update your information in the "Forum Name" box. Please keep in mind that the Forum name must be in all lowercase letters and cannot be the same as your username.
  5. Press the "Save Options" button to save your changes.

Did you know you can hide your forum name?
In "Community Options" (step 3), select 'hidden' under the "Display Forum Name in Marketplace" section.
Save your changes.

Thank you!
I think you should allow using the same username and also capital letters.

We want to keep the forum name and username separate.  This way people can move domains between accounts while still remaining anonymous.  

As for the capital letters,  we may be able to change that, but it likely won;t be any time soon as we have so many other improvements in the works.     :)

Morning. Abit cumbersome to change the name. To start there is no 'My Info' anywhere, at least for me to find. Anyways, I do not use the forum, but still why not make easier like a 'update my subscription? Cheers. Do as your company has do. None of my business.
