  • How long do I have if I want to restore my domain after it has been deleted?

    If the renewal grace period of your domain has already passed, you may still be able to restore the domain. Unfortunately, this is not guaranteed and will cost more because the domain has already been deleted. Most top-level domains (TLDs) offer a restore period and in most cases it's 30 days. To see what the restore period is for a certain domain, you can visit the domain's TLD page. Click on the individual domain extension from the TLD page and look under the "Restore Period" column in the "Domain Information" section.

  • What is a reserved domain name?

    Reserved domain names are domain names that the central registry has held back from general registration. This means that they are not available to register. The reason for this can vary. In some cases, certain domains may be held back due to potential "name collisions." Often, registries will decide to not release one and two character domain names. And sometimes registries will hold back certain domain names they consider valuable. For example, the .ME registry has held back certain premium domain names that you can only register by application. Please note that sometimes registries decide to release previously reserved domain names. Generally when this is done, the reserved domain names are considered premium by the registry and sold at a higher price. Is the domain you’re looking for taken or unavailable? Enter keywords into our domain suggestion tool and discover quality domains that are available for registration.

  • What are the Pending Delete Domain Evaluations?

    Pending Delete Domain Evaluations (also known as IPS reports) are a set of valuable data points to help you evaluate domain names that are pending deletion in our backorders. These reports include information such as average monthly traffic, domain rank, popularity score, inbound and outbound links, and much more. NOTE: The Pending Delete Domain Evaluation reports are only available to accounts that qualify for Bulk or Super Bulk Pricing. Where do I find the Pending Delete Domain Evaluations?

  • What is a domain name?

    Why, it's what we sell, of course! A domain name is essentially a name for an IP address of a website. Since IP addresses consist of a combination of numbers, domain names are a way for people to remember where a website can be found without having to memorize combinations of numbers and periods. We offer a variety of top-level domains (TLDs), such as the popular .COM. We support over 400 different TLDs including several country code TLDs (ccTLDs).

  • 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: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click on "Domain Defaults" in the drop-down. Click on the "Search TLD Settings" link. You can set each TLD to either "Hide", "Show", or "Default". "Show" means that that TLD will be checked-off on our advanced search page, while "Hide" means it won't be. Default will only check-off the TLDs that our system has defaulted to check-off. Press the "Save" button to save your changes.

  • How do I activate my new .ECO domain name(s)?

    After registering a .ECO domain name, you’ll need to have the domain name activated by the central registry before it can be used. Shortly after registering your new domain you should receive an email from [email protected] with the subject line Activate [yourdomain].eco. If this email hasn’t been received, you can request a new activation email by using the central registry’s tool, which can be found here. This email will include an invitation to create a .ECO profile and activate your domain. When creating your .ECO profile you'll be required to take a pledge to show your commitment to the purpose and principles of .ECO, and affirm your eligibility by sharing your eco actions and commitments. These requirements apply to all .ECO domain names. Once your .ECO profile has been activated, you can begin using your .ECO domains. Failure to complete this process will leave the domain name in a "Server Hold" status until the activation is successful.

  • Why were 2 years added to my .EU domain after I restored it?

    After your .EU domain expires, it is deleted and placed into a quarantine status at the end of the month. If you choose to restore your .EU domain after this deletion, the system will add 2 years to your domain expiration date. 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.
