- 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). See our full list of TLDs to find and register your perfect domain name today! Check out our domain categories
- 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. Find out how to transfer your domains away from Dynadot.
- If I transfer my domain to you, will my website and email be affected?
If you use a third party to host your website and email, they should not be affected by the domain name transfer. We do not change the name servers for your domain during the transfer process. If you host your website and email with your registrar, they may be affected. Some registrars will only host your website or email if you register a domain with them. In this case, you should not transfer your domain until you move your website and email hosting to a third party company.
- 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.
- If my domain expires during a transfer, will the transfer still be completed?
If your domain transfer was initiated before the expiration date, the transfer can still be completed. Most domain registrars will let the domain transfer continue if the domain has expired before the transfer has been completed; however, there are a few registrars that will manually deny the transfer after the domain has expired. If this worries you, you should contact your previous domain registrar, and ask them if they will still let the domain transfer continue since the transfer was initiated before the domain expired. NOTE: A domain transfer does not start right after you submit a domain transfer order to us. A domain transfer starts after the transfer has been authorized. You will receive a "Transfer Initiated" email from us when that happens. See the steps involved in a domain transfer.
- 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.
- Do you offer revenue parking?
No, Dynadot does not offer revenue parking. Unfortunately, we had issues with too many fraudulent clicks in the past, so we no longer offer this service. There are other third party services available that offer revenue parking. You simply need to point your domain to that service when you set your name servers. Dynadot does offer a domain parking service that is free with every domain.
- How can I access the Hit Counter tool?
You can use our Hit Counter tool to access traffic stats for domains using our Forwarding or Stealth Forwarding settings. To access this tool, please follow these steps: Log into your Dynadot account. Select "My Domains" and "Manage Domains." Find your forwarded domain in the list and hover over the downward arrow to the left of your domain. Select "Hit Counter" from the available options. When the new page opens, enter in a Start Day and End Day. Press "Search". Your hit statistics will be displayed here.
- Why has my .EU domain been quarantined? What does that mean?
The most common reason for a .EU domain being quarantined is because it was not renewed and has been deleted. .EU domains are deleted and placed into a quarantine status at the end of the month. The quarantine period lasts for 40 days and any websites or email addresses attached to the domain names will no longer work. Once the quarantine period has passed, the domain names are released and can be registered by anyone on a first-come-first-served basis. Can my .EU domain be reactivated once it's been placed in quarantine? Yes, if the domain is still in quarantine, it can be restored. The cost for this will be higher than a standard renewal.
