- 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 listing fee) after the processing period ends. NOTE: The processing period will take 5-20 days. The Marketplace listing fee is 5% of the listing price. There is no minimum listing fee at this time. The sale proceeds are credited as Dynadot account credit, but can be payed out on request.

How do I place a backorder request for a pending delete domain?
- What is an Expired Domain Auction?
When a domain is not renewed by the registrant, it is auctioned off. The highest bidder for the domain may then receive the domain in their Dynadot account. 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. This will happen, at most, once per auction. You may also 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. If you are the highest bidder when the auction ends, you have 2 days to pay for the auction. Once you pay, the domain is moved into your Dynadot account in about 4 days, provided it is not renewed by the original Registrant. To bid on an auction, first create a Dynadot account if you haven't already. We require at least $2 account spending before you can participate in our expired domain auctions. You can prepay $2 into your account and use the account credit to pay for your first won auction or other purchase with us. NOTE: An Expired Auction may be cancelled if the original registrant renews the domain.
- 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. If a bid is received in the last 5 minutes of an auction, the end time will be extended by 5 minutes. This will happen, at most, once per auction. 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
