    • How do I renew my domain for more than one year?

      To renew your domain for more than one year, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" from the drop-down.. Check the box next to the domain name(s) you wish to renew and click on the "Bulk Action" button. Choose "Renew" from the "Bulk Action" list. The item will be added to your shopping cart at the top right-hand corner of the page. Click on your shopping cart to access the items in your cart. Select the duration you want for your domain renewal(s) (up to 9 years for most domain extensions). Press the "Checkout" buttons to submit your order. Renewing your domain for more than one year is a great way to ensure that you don't lose your domain to expiration. Another great way to make sure you don't lose your domain (especially when there's a lot of time left until your next renewal) is by setting your domain to auto-renew.

    • How do I add a Sender Policy Framework (SPF) to my domain?

Setting SPF records can help prevent spammers from sending messages with forged from addresses at your domain.

    • I am trying to set my name servers, but the page just reloads when I click on it. Why?

      If you are trying to access your domain's name server settings and the page is simply reloading, this is because you need to verify your contact record. When you create a new contact record, you must verify it in our system. To do this, we send you an email with a link that you can use to complete the verification. This email is sent to the registrant email address indicated on that contact record. If you do not have this email, you can request to have the Contact Record Whois Verification email resent from within your account.

    • How do I check and choose which contact record should be viewable in the public Whois directory?

      To check which contact records your domain is using for the Whois directory, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down. Under the "Domain" column, click on your domain name (which should be a link). Choose the "Contacts" tab to the right of "Settings". You will be prompted to unlock your account. Once your account is unlocked, you can choose which contact record to display on the Whois directory and check which contact is currently in use. Press the "Save" button to save any changes. If you need to set more than one domain's Whois information, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Make sure to unlock your account. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down. Check the box next to your domain name(s) and click on the "Bulk Action" button. Choose "Contacts" from the "Bulk Action" list. Use the drop-down menus to choose the correct contact record you want to use. Press the "Save Settings" button to save your changes. Once you update your contact records for your domains, it might take a few days for the public Whois directory to update.

    • How do I add domain privacy to a domain in my Dynadot account?

      Want to add domain privacy to one of your domains? We have two available privacy options: partial privacy, which hides all of your personal information except your name, and full privacy, which hides all of your personal information including your name. You can easily add privacy within your Dynadot account by following these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down. Check the box next to the domain name(s) you wish to add privacy and click on the "Bulk Action" button. Choose "Privacy Settings" from the "Bulk Action" list. Select either "Partial" or "Full" privacy from the drop-down menu and click the "Save" button to add privacy to your domain. NOTE: If you choose to use our domain privacy service, your personal information, including your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number, is replaced by our domain privacy service information and will not be sent to the central registry. This will also happen when we escrow your Whois data to the third party data escrow service as required by ICANN. You can see an example of this on our Domain Privacy page. If one of the domains selected does not allow privacy, or if any domains are expired, this will result in an error message. See a list of domains that do not allow privacy.
