  • Is the domain I won in the Expired Auction renewed?

    Yes, the expiration date is extended by one year when you win a domain through our Expired Auction. For instance, if the domain expired on February 1, 2018, the new expiration date would be February 1, 2019.

  • If I win a domain in the Expired Auction, does the creation date change?

    No, the creation date for a domain won in our Expired Auction would not change as it is not a newly registered domain, meaning it was not released from the central registry and registered as a brand-new registration. For instance, if a domain was registered (created) on February 1, 2015, the creation date would remain February 1, 2015.

  • 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 “My Marketplace” from the left-side menu bar, then click "Active listings". In the "Quick Info" column, click on the "view listing" link. Your marketplace listing will open up in a new window. To make changes to your listing, you can edit it by clicking on the domain under the "Domain Name" column.

  • How does selling a domain using the Make Offer system work?

    1. First, you would need to create your listing. 2. When a potential buyer sends you an offer, a chat will be created between you and them. 3. You will be able to view your chats by clicking My Marketplace in the left-side menu bar, then clicking Offers In/Out from the dropdown. 4. If you do not like the initial offer, you can choose to send a counter-offer. 5. Once you have agreed on a price, you will be prompted to finalize the sale by unlocking your account and selecting the currency for the order. 6. The link will be sent to the buyer, and you will be sent an email to notify you once the buyer has submitted the order. All messages can be access through your Dynadot control panel.

  • Which TLDs are supported in your backorder system?

    You can place a backorder for a domain that is about to be re-released to the public in our marketplace. While we support numerous backorder TLDs (top-level domains), Dynadot does not drop catch our full list of TLDs that are available for domain registration. We frequently add new TLDs to our supported backorder TLDs list. View our up-to-date list below or visit our backorder page and click the dropdown menu to see the full list. We support backorders for many TLDs including: .com .net .org .info .tv .cc .biz .io .me .sh .ac .us .bz .ag .mn .lc .vc .sc .mobi .pro .red .blue .black .pink .green .kim .organic .lgbt .poker .vote .promo .archi .bio .ski .com.co .net.co .nom.co .cn .中国 .xyz .xxx .adult .porn .sex .global .asia .eco .vegas .onl .pr .ca .bet .co .com.cn .net.cn .org.cn .voto .移动 .shiksha .gg .je What is a backorder, aka drop catch?

  • 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. We also use EstiBot Domain Appraiser to provide an estimated value of the domain name in our auctions. According to EstiBot, they use a "statistically derived model to calculate the value of a domain name based on over one hundred internal and external domain attributes. Internal attributes include domain length, extension, word count, pronunciation and other characteristics directly linked to a specific domain". More information about EstiBot's methodology is available here.

  • How do I participate in your Expired Domain Auctions?

    Our Expired Domain Auctions 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. Our expired auctions use proxy bidding. If you have the winning bid, you will be sent an email when the auction closes. There will be a very limited payment window (48 hours) before the order is cancelled, so we recommend using auto-pay for auction orders. NOTE: In rare cases, a domain won at auction will not be added to your account because it was renewed by the original registrant. If this occurs, your account will credited the full amount of the order. Because of the nature of the life-cycle of a domain, we must auction expiring domains at the tail-end of the original registrant's Renewal Grace Period. In most cases, this will not cause a problem and the domain will be added to your Dynadot account in 3-4 days. How do I place a bid on an Expired Domain Auction?
