- How do I mark my domain for deletion?
If you don't want to keep your domain name, you can mark it for deletion. This is different from a grace period deletion and you will not receive any account credit if you choose to delete your domain this way. To mark your domain for deletion before the expiration date, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down. In the "Domain Name" column, click on your domain name (which should be a link). Scroll down to the bottom of the page and find the "Delete" section. Press the "Delete" button to delete your domain (a pop-up will appear for confirmation). If the "Delete" button is not present, you may need to unlock your domain first. If your domain is set to auto-renew, please disable those settings. Our system will automatically process your deletion 7 days after the request is made. If you change your mind about deleting your domain, you will need to cancel your deletion request before then. If your domain is close to expiration, you can also choose to set your domain to "do not renew" and let it naturally expire. NOTE: .EU, .BE, .UK, .CA, and .AT domains cannot be marked for deletion. For .AT domains, only a signed document from the .AT registrant can cancel the registration.

- Is there a drawback to using stealth forwarding?
Yes, there is a drawback when you use stealth forwarding. With stealth forwarding, visitors to your website will not be able to see your site's sub-directory structure. They will also not be able to bookmark specific pages on your website when you use stealth forwarding. This is because stealth forwarding uses frames and only serves to forward a visitor to the web page you have specified in the stealth forwarding option. Once your visitor has reached your website, the URL in the address bar will not change no matter which page he/she navigates to until he/she reaches a web page which breaks out of the frames. Once a visitor breaks out of the frames, the website's real URL address will be visible in the web browser's URL bar. For example, say you have a page http://name.somedomain.com/folder/somepage.html and when you use stealth forwarding, you want http://www.myexample.org/folder/somepage.html to show up instead of http://name.somedomain.com/folder/somepage.html. This will not work with stealth forwarding since your domain name can only hide the URL of your website and will always show up as http://www.myexample.org/. If you want to be able to see your sub-directory structure, then you must create a website on myexample.org. You can do this through Dynadot's free website builder or with a web hosting plan, so your files are all hosted on myexample.org instead of at name.somedomain.com. You can also choose to use our regular domain forwarding. Find out how to set up stealth forwarding. Find out how to set up domain forwarding.

- How many years can I register my domain?
You can register your domain up to 10 years; however, not all top-level domains (TLDs) allow this many years of registration. There are two ways to see how many years of registration are allowed on a certain TLD: Go to the individual TLD page and scroll down to the "Domain Pricing" table. Here you will see prices listed for each year of registration that is available for that TLD. For example, on the .AT page, you will notice that only the first year's price is listed, while on the .COM page, all 10 years have prices. This is because .AT can only be registered for a maximum of one year, while .COM can be registered up to the maximum of 10 years. Add the domain name you are interested in registering to the shopping cart and click on the "1 year" drop-down. When you add a domain to your cart, the default selection is 1 year. You can use this drop down to adjust the number of years you would like to register your domain. The drop-down will list the highest number of years that are available for registration for your chosen domain. Registering your domain for multiple years can help ensure that you don't lose your domain to expiration.
- What is domain hijacking?
Domain hijacking is when someone takes your domain away from you. Usually, it is accomplished by falsifying a domain transfer authorization. The best way to prevent your domain from being hijacked is to keep it locked. You can lock all your domains from your Dynadot control panel for free, and in fact, we make this the default setting when you register or transfer a domain to us to ensure domain security. When a domain is locked, a domain transfer cannot even be started by another Registrar. To read about the most famous domain hijacking case, read the Wikipedia entry for Sex.com.
