- How do I generate a new auth code for my domain?
In most cases, you shouldn't need to generate a new authorization code for your domain just to transfer it. However, sometimes if there is an issue with your transfer, generating a new auth code can help solve the issue. Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "Manage" from the "Domains" drop-down menu. Click on the domain name you want to transfer (it should be a blue link). Scroll down to the "Transfer Lock & Auth Code" section. If you have already begun your transfer, your domain should say "No" next to "Transfer Lock." If it's not, this is likely the problem. You need to unlock your domain and you probably don't need to generate a new auth code. To access your auth code and generate a new one, you will need to unlock your account using the "unlock your account" link. Once your account is unlocked, your should see your domain's current authorization code. Click on the "Generate New Auth Code" button to generate a new code to replace the current one. If you are in the middle of a transfer, you will need to update your pending transfer with the new auth code.

If you have chosen to delete your domain before its expiration date and then decide to restore it, the system will only add 1 year to your domain expiration date.

- 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 "Manage" from the "Domains" drop-down menu. 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 "Request Deletion" section. Click on the confirm check box, and then click the "Request Deletion" button. If the "Request Deletion" button is not present, you may need to unlock your domain first. If your domain is set to auto-renew, please disable those settings. The domain will be deleted 30 days after your request, so if you change your mind, 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, and .AT domains cannot be marked for deletion. For .AT domains, only a signed document from the .AT registrant can cancel the registration.
- Who has the rights to a .UK domain?
Direct registrations on .UK officially launched on June 10, 2014 08:00 UTC. Prior to this date, there were only a few registrations that had been allowed on .UK. As a courtesy to .CO.UK domain owners, they have the first rights to their domain name on .UK. If you are a .ORG.UK owner, you have first rights to your domain name on .UK only if no one owns your domain name on .CO.UK. If you are a .ME.UK owner, you have first rights to your domain name on .UK only if no one owns either the .CO.UK or the .ORG.UK. The only exception to the above break down of first rights is if the higher priority domain was purchased after 10/28/13 23:59 UTC and the lower priority domain was purchased before this date. For example, if the .CO.UK domain name was purchased after 10/28/13 23:59 UTC and the .ORG.UK was purchased before that date, then the .ORG.UK owner has the rights to their domain name on .UK. All owners have the rights to their .UK domain name until 6/10/19 07:59 UTC. If you are unsure if you have the rights to your domain name on .UK, you can check using the rights checker on dotuklaunch.co.uk. If you would like to purchase a .UK domain name that you have the rights to, you must use the same registrant name that you used for your .CO.UK, .ORG.UK, or .ME.UK domain name. Please note that in order to register a .UK domain, you must also have an admin in the UK as .UK domains are restricted. NOTE: If you do not have the rights to the .UK domain you ordered, we will be forced to cancel your order. .UK domains that have a right of registration will be marked in our search results.
