- Do you have reseller accounts available for your services?
A reseller is a company or person that buys domains from a domain registrar or another domain reseller on behalf of their customers. Often with resellers, the domain you purchase is not owned by you, but is instead owned by the reseller, which is something to be aware of. For many years Dynadot did not offer reseller services. However, we are currently working on bringing the best possible reseller service to market. Please check back in the second quarter of 2023 (Q2 2023).
