- How do I place a bid in the 3-day private auction that sometimes follows a successful backorder request?
If we received multiple backorder requests on a pending delete domain we caught, then the domain will go into a 3-day private auction. If you placed the first backorder request for the domain, our system will automatically place a starting bid of $5 over the backorder price for you. Our system uses proxy bidding. To place a bid in a private backorder auction, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "Auction Bids" from the "Marketplace" drop-down menu. Click on the "Add New Bid" button under the "Time Left" column. Enter your max bid in the "Proxy Bid Amount" field. Check the box indicating you agree to the terms of our Service Agreement. Click on the "Place Proxy Bid" button to place your bid. Learn more about our backorders Learn how to place a backorder request
- 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.
- How do I place a backorder request for a pending delete domain?
Dynadot has a domain backorder service available in our marketplace. You can place a backorder on a pending delete domain and we will try to catch it for you as it "drops" or is re-released to the public for registration. To place a backorder request, you must first meet the following requirements: You must have completed a successful order with us within the last 365 days. If you are new to Dynadot or do not have a recent order history, the easiest way to fulfill this requirement is by creating a prepay order. You cannot be banned from our auctions. You must set your marketplace default payment settings in your account. You are now ready to place a backorder request. Here is how it works: If there is only one backorder placed, an order will be created and we will do our very best to catch the domain for you. Please understand there is no guarantee we will be successful. These domains are being dropped by the central registry and there may be competition from other domain registrars. If there are multiple backorders for the same domain, a 3-day private auction will be held for the customers that placed backorders on the domain. The starting bid will be $5 over the backorder price and will be placed for the customer who first placed the backorder.

- How do I view my Marketplace listing?
Our Marketplace is the place to buy and sell domains! Once you've set your domain for sale, you can easily view your listing from within your Dynadot account without having to try and find it on our Marketplace page. To view your listing, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "Active Listings" from the "Marketplace" tab in the main menu.

- Do you have a backordering service?
Yes, we have an awesome domain backorder service available in our marketplace! We offer backorders on the following top-level domains: .COM, .NET, .ORG, .CO, .TV, .CC, .US, .BIZ, and .INFO. You can place a domain backorder request for a domain that is pending deletion if you have completed at least one successful order with us in the last 365 days and haven't been banned from our auctions. If you don't qualify for the former, you can prepay into your account now. You will also need to set your marketplace default payment settings in your account. After you place a domain backorder, we will try to catch the domain as it drops, but we cannot guarantee that will catch it for you. If we do catch it and you're the only person who placed a backorder request, then an order will be created for you and you will have 48 hours to pay for the domain. Then, the domain will be placed in your account once your order is complete. If you do not pay for the domain, you will be banned from our auctions. In the case of multiple backorder requests, there will be a private 3-day auction. Have your eye on a domain, but don't see it in our backorders yet? Add it to your domain watch list!

- I paid for my winning Expired Domain Auction, why is it still processing?
Expired Domain Auction wins take 3-4 days to process as you are waiting out the tail-end of the original registrant's renewal grace period. If not renewed, the domain will be added to your account just as soon as this period is over. In rare cases, a domain won at auction will not be added to your account because it was renewed by the original registrant. If you need an exact date and time for when your auction order will complete processing, please email email@example.com and include your order number in the subject line. Please note that once the domain is added to your account, it will be in "auction lock" status.
- How accurate are your Expired Auction traffic and revenue stats?
Our Expired Domain Auctions offer information about the monthly revenue, monthly visitors, inbound links, and age of the domain. We use well-known third party parking companies to park expired domain names. The stats we publish on the Expired Domain Auctions page are directly from these companies.
