- 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 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 domain auto-renew?
Ensure you never lose a domain with Dynadot's domain auto-renew! Our auto-renew system will take care of your domain renewal for you. Basically, once you set your domain to auto-renew and select a payment method for your auto-renew domains, our system will automatically renew your domain 15 days before its expiration date. If for some reason, our attempt to renew your domain is unsuccessful, you will receive an email for us letting you know. Then, our system will continue to attempt to renew your domain everyday until the domain's expiration. This allows you to address the issue - usually a payment issue such as an expired credit card or not enough account credit to cover the renewal - and then allow our system to still take care of the renewal for you. Once your domain auto-renewal has been completed, you will receive a confirmation email from us. NOTE: If your domain expires and our system was unable to successfully auto-renew it, you will need to manually renew it yourself. Most domains have a renewal grace period that will allow you to complete the renewal for a certain amount of time after the domain's expiration date. How do I edit an existing credit card? How do I add another credit card to my Dynadot account?

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.
- 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.
