    • How do I update my Whois email address?

NOTE: If you update a Whois contact record that is being used for a generic top-level domain (gTLD), such as .COM, you will receive a Contact Record Whois Verification email from accounts@dynadot.com to your Whois registrant email (After you hit "Save Contact," you will see information about whether or not this email has been sent out under the "gTLD Verification" section). You will need click on the link in the email to verify your contact record. Failure to verify your contact record within 15 days will result in the suspension of the domains attached to that contact record (your domains will be set to parking).

    • Why does email forwarding not work with Gmail?

      Every domain registered at Dynadot comes with free email forwarding that allows you to receive email to an address on your domain name, for example, email@yourdomain.com. The email is forwarded to an existing email such as your Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or other email. Yes, you read right - our email forwarding does work with Gmail; however, there is a catch. Sending an email from your Gmail account to your domain, which then forwards back to the same Gmail account, will not work. Gmail will detect the forwarded email to yourself and not deliver the email. We are not sure why Gmail does this. All other forwarding with Gmail should work properly.
