Order Process

  • How do I renew my Email plan?

    You can easily renew your Email plan(s) right from within your Dynadot account. Please follow these steps to renew: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Hosting" from the left-side menu bar. Check the box next to the website(s) you want to renew. Click the "Renew" button. The item will be added to your shopping cart at the top left corner of the page. To checkout, click on the shopping cart and then click the "Check Out" button. Our system will take you through the check out process to submit your order. You will receive an "Order Complete" email from us when your order has finished processing and your hosting has been successfully renewed. If your Email package expires, your email will go down. Make sure that doesn't happen by setting up auto-renew for your Email plan!

  • How come my domain order has not processed yet?

    Thanks for choosing Dynadot as your domain registrar! There are a couple reasons why your domain order has not been processed: You have not completed payment for your order. This can be due to a declined credit card or in the case of PayPal, Skrill, and Alipay, you may not have clicked on the payment link or we may not have received your payment yet. We requested verification and it has not been completed yet. The order requires manual approval. Please contact our customer service department if you are unsure why the order is pending.

  • What is your Refund Policy?

    We give refunds in the form of account credit for the following scenarios: New Domain Registrations If the domain name is less than 5 days old, you may be able to request a grace period deletion. You will be credited the domain's registration cost minus the applicable grace deletion fee stated on our grace deletion page. Domain Transfers If a domain transfer fails for any reason, we can give a refund. This also applies for failed .EU and .BE domain trades. Expired Auction Orders If an expired auction order is cancelled because the domain was renewed by the original registrant, we can provide a full refund of the payment for the expired auction order to the original payment method. Web Hosting We can cancel Email Hosting if we receive the refund request within the first 30 days of purchase. Please transfer all your files, databases, and/or scripts from your hosting before you email us for a refund because we will delete your web hosting package before we issue you a refund. Website Builder If you upgraded to a yearly plan, we can cancel your plan within 30 days of purchase. Please email us to cancel any upgraded plans. SSL Certificates We can issue a refund within 7 days after the SSL certificate is issued. NOTE: All refund requests are handled MANUALLY. Our system will automatically issue you an account credit. You must EMAIL us in order to receive a refund. All refund requests must be received / processed within 60 days of the order date to be considered. Scenarios for which we cannot provide refunds: Domain Registrations If a domain has no grace hours left (typically, older than 5 days) or the TLD does not support grace deletions at all, you will not be able to have it deleted for credit. Domain Renewals In some cases we may be able to refund a domain renewal. The request would need to received by our support team within 5 days of the order completion date. If the renewal can be refunded, it will require immediate deletion of the domain name. Any such request should be emailed to [email protected] as soon as possible. Please include your acknowledgement of the domain deletion in your message to help speed up the process. Account Prepay Prepay orders are non-refundable. Requests may be considered only if none of the credit has been spent. Marketplace Domain Sales An order for a domain purchased through the Domain Marketplace cannot be cancelled/reversed unless both parties (i.e. buyer and seller) agree. User Auctions An order for a domain won through User Auction cannot be reversed/cancelled since bids, including a winning bid, cannot be cancelled. Backorders & Backorder Auctions When a backordered domain is caught by us and paid by you (either because you were the only customer to have requested the domain or because you won it through backorder auction), the domain would be automatically added to your account. Domains added from backorders cannot be grace deleted. Installment Payments Installment payments are non-refundable.

  • How do I change the payment method for my order?

    If your payment has not already completed, then you should be able to change your payment method. Depending on the status of your order, there are two ways to do this. If your order is still in "Waiting for Payment" status (and is not in payment pending status), you can change your payment method within your Dynadot account by following these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Find the "Open Orders" section at the top of your account "Summary" page. You can also access any open orders by going to "Pending Orders" from the notifications area along the top bar. If you are able to edit the payment method for your order, you'll see an "Edit" drop-down menu that you can use to edit your payment method. Selecting "Edit Payment" will take you to the "Payment Type" page where you can choose an alternative payment method. The same payment methods that were available to you at checkout should be available here. Depending on the currency you're paying with, your options may include account balance, credit/debit card, PayPal, Skrill, Alipay, bank wire, money order, cashier's check, personal check, eCash, bank transfer, or ApplePay. If your order is in payment pending status and there is no "Edit Payment" button available, please email us at [email protected] if you still wish to change the payment method.

  • I got a "Credit Card Problem" email. Can I try charging my credit card again?

    Yes, you can attempt to charge your credit card up to 3 times for each order before our system will prevent you from attempting again. To try charging your credit card again, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Find the "Open Orders" section listed at the top of your acocunt "Summary" page. You can also access any open orders by going to "Pending Orders" from the notifications area along the top bar. You will see a drop-down menu under the 'Payment Type' column. Use this to edit your card info, change your payment method, or cancel your order. If you are still able to charge your credit card, you will see a "Charge Card" option. Click on the "Charge Card" button to attempt to charge your credit card again. If you do not see the "Charge Card" button, then you will need to contact us to charge your card. If your credit card is being declined, you may want to check your credit card information to see if you have accidentally mistyped one of the credit card fields. Alternatively, you may want to contact your credit card company to see if there is any reason why they are denying the charges. You can also edit your payment type to choose a different credit card to charge or select another payment method to complete your order. Discover more on Dynadot: Want to earn account credit?
