- Can I transfer my domain from Dynadot to a different domain registrar?
Yes, you can transfer your domain(s) to another domain registrar. There is no fee or penalty to do this; however, there are some restrictions: Domains that have expired cannot be transferred. You must renew them through us first. Domains less than 60 days old cannot be transferred. This is a rule enforced by the central registries. Domains recently transferred to Dynadot cannot be transferred out for 60 days. Domains in "Buy Lock" or "Auction Lock" status cannot be transferred.

- If I register a domain name through your company, who is the owner? Is it me or Dynadot?
You are the owner of all domain names that you register through us. As long as you continue to renew your domain, you are the owner. If you do not renew, then the domain is deleted and someone else can become the owner. Dynadot is an ICANN-accredited domain registrar, not a reseller. This means that we have a direct connection with the central registries of the domains we sell. See our blog post on the "3 R's of the Domain Industry: Registry, Registrar, & Reseller" for more information. If you aren't sure if you're considered the owner of your domain, do a Whois lookup to see if your information is listed (keep in mind your information may not be listed if you are using a privacy service).
- How do I change my domain privacy in bulk?
We recently added the ability to hide your name (in addition to email, phone, and address) in our domain privacy service. Although new registrations with privacy will automatically default to full privacy, registrations that had privacy before the new privacy was added are set to partial privacy (meaning the name is not private). To change your domain privacy in bulk, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Click “My Domains”, then “Manage Domains” from the left-side menu bar. Check the boxes next to the domain names for which you wish to adjust privacy. To select all your domains, check the box at the top of the frame. Click "Bulk Action", then "Privacy Settings". Choose your desired privacy status in the drop-down menu. Click on the "Submit" button to save your changes. Please keep in mind that it may take a few days for Whois database to be updated to your altered Whois contacts. If you do not yet have privacy, and would like to add it for your domains, please refer to our help file on how to add domain privacy in bulk.
- What is spam?
"Spam" is email that is both unsolicited and in bulk. Unsolicited means that the recipient has not granted permission for the message to be sent. Bulk means that the same message has been sent to many people, usually all at once. An email that is unsolicited but not sent in bulk is fine, such as asking about a product before buying it. An email that is sent in bulk but not unsolicited is fine, such as sending a newsletter. But sending an email that is both unsolicited and in bulk is spamming. Dynadot does not allow its services to be used for the transmission of spam. See our spam policy for more info.
- How can I use DKIM with my domain?
You can use DKIM by adding a TXT record to a subdomain. If you are using Google as your email provider, that subdomain will likely be "google._domainkey".
