  • What is the "Domain Sale" process for your Marketplace?

    Our Marketplace has many domains listed for sale. Our "Domain Sale" process is structured to help potential buyers purchase the domain they want immediately without the hassle of contacting the seller directly. This benefits the seller too since it helps them sell more domains with less work. Here's how it works: A seller lists a domain for sale at a specific price in our Marketplace. An interested buyer sees this domain for sale and decides to buy it. He/she adds the domain to their shopping cart, checks out, and submits payment. Our system automatically moves the domain to the buyer's Dynadot account so they can use the domain immediately. The domain will stay on a "Buy Lock" status for 30 days. This prevents the buyer from moving the domain to another Dynadot account or transferring the domain to another domain registrar. The sale proceeds are credited to the seller's Dynadot account (minus a 5% Marketplace commission fee) after the processing period ends. NOTE: Dynadot marketplace commission fee is 5% of the sold price. There is no listing fee at this time. The processing period will take 6-10 days. The sale proceeds are credited as Dynadot account credit, but can be paid out on request. What other ways can you earn on Dynadot? Participate in our Refer-a-Friend program.

  • What is a closeout?

    These are domains that did not receive bids during the expired auction and are now being offered at a reduced price. This pricing structure is the fixed cost plus the renewal cost (applied during checkout). This fixed cost decreases every day that the domain is not acquired: Day 1 Fixed Cost: $30 Day 2 Fixed Cost: $15 Day 3 Fixed Cost: $5 This program does not require a bid system and these domains are first come, first serve. To participate, first create a Dynadot account if you haven't already. We require at least $5 account spending before you can participate. You can prepay $5 into your account and use the account credit to pay for your closeout order. NOTE: The closeout may be cancelled if the original registrant renews the domain.

  • What is a User Auction?

    Great news, we have expanded our Marketplace and we now support User Auctions! With our new User Auctions feature, Dynadot users can list a domain for auction, and the highest bidder may then receive the domain in their Dynadot account. If you want to bid on a User Auction domain: Auctions last for 7 days, and you can bid anytime during that period. If a bid is received in the last 5 minutes of an auction, the end time will be extended by 5 minutes. There is no limit to the number of times an auction may be extended before the auction's final "end time" is set. You may place a proxy bid for higher than the current minimum bid. If someone else places a bid, the system will automatically bid for you until your max proxy bid amount is reached. Once a domain has been listed for auction, the auction cannot be modified, but can be cancelled by the seller until a bid is placed. If you are the highest bidder when the auction ends, you have 3 calendar days to pay for the auction. Once you pay, the domain is moved into your Dynadot account. To bid on an auction, first create a Dynadot account if you do not have one. We require at least $5 account spending before you can participate in our User Auctions. You can prepay $5 into your account and use the account credit to pay for your first won auction, or any other purchase with us. Domains won in our User Auctions will be placed in "Buy Lock" status for 30 days. NOTE: Domains purchased from a User Auction will not be renewed, and will retain their original expiry date. If you want to list your domain for auction: We have a step-by-step guide on how to list your domain for auction. The auction will start immediately after you click the "Auction Domain" button. YOU CANNOT MODIFY THE AUCTION ONCE IT STARTS, but an auction can be cancelled until a bid is placed. Dynadot's auction commission is 10% of the final price. There is no listing fee at this time. All Dynadot User Auctions will last for 7 days. Once a domain has been listed in our User Auctions it cannot be unlocked, deleted, moved to another Dynadot account, or transferred to another registrar. It is not possible to auction a domain that expires in less than 15 days as the processing period will take 5-20 days. Auction proceeds are given in account credit. This credit can be used as payment for any future orders placed at Dynadot. NOTE: Dynadot now supports Payouts.

  • How do I participate in expired closeouts?

    Our Expired Closeouts are a great way to pick up domains that are about to expire. There are a few requirements to participate: You must have a Dynadot Account (creating one is free). You must not be banned from our auctions. You must have $5 in account balance, or have completed a successful order payment of at least $5 with us within the last 365 days. If you are new to Dynadot or do not have a recent order history, the easiest way for you to fulfill this requirement is by creating a prepay order. Please note that the amount of the prepay will default to $100.00, but you can adjust this manually. NOTE: In rare cases, a domain purchased during closeout will not be added. This could be for two different reasons: 1. The original registrant renewed the domain. 2. The payment method declined. Related help files: What is a closeout? Do closeout domain fees include renewal?

  • What is a domain marketplace?

    A domain marketplace is a platform where you can buy and sell domains. Sellers can list their domains for sale at a certain price or at "make offer" and buyers can either purchase or make an offer on a domain they want. Domain marketplaces can be a great way to find a good domain name that you won't be able to find by doing a simple domain search. The prices are higher in a domain marketplace, but they vary depending on the value of a domain. Ready to find your next great domain? Check out our domain marketplace or learn how to list your domains for sale in it. We also have two other great places to find domains: Expired Auctions and Backorders.
