  • 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.

  • How do I save my domain search TLD settings?

    Are you always searching for domain names on the same top-level domains (TLDs)? Let us help you narrow your search by TLD! You can set up a what we call "search TLD settings" that will put the TLDs you want to search at the top of all of our searches including our advanced search and IDN search. To set up your search TLD settings, please follow these steps: Log into your Dynadot account. Select "Domain Defaults" from the "Domains" drop-down menu. Click on the "Search TLD Settings" link on the right-hand side column of the page. You can set each TLD to either On, Off, or Default. On means that that TLD will be checked off on our advanced search page, while Off means it won't be. Default will only check off the TLDs that our system has defaulted to check off. Click on the "Save TLD Settings" button when finished.

  • What is domain forwarding?

    Domain forwarding is similar to when a web page redirects a visitor to another website, but instead of using HTML or a script to do the redirection, the domain name itself redirects to the website. When a domain is set to forward visitors to another website, the domain's name does not stay in the web browser's URL bar. Instead, the new page's URL is displayed. If you want to keep the domain's name in the URL bar, you need to use stealth forwarding. Domain forwarding only affects the domain itself. If you want to set up email forwarding with your domain, that is done separately. Dynadot provides domain forwarding, stealth forwarding, and email forwarding free of charge when you register or transfer a domain name to us.
