  • My payment has been made, why am I being asked to verify my order?

    We realize that we take a stricter approach to fraud prevention than most other registrars. With "card not present" orders (or orders placed online), the onus is on the merchant, and we are responsible for all fees associated with the chargebacks and reversals we receive. Aside from these unwanted and costly charges, we are disheartened when we discover a stolen credit card or hacked PayPal account has been used to fund orders made with us and, thus, do our best to avoid such occurrences. Because of this, we have developed a sophisticated fraud filter that selects which orders require verification. If you receive one such request, please do not take it personally as there are many factors at play and the request is by no means an accusation. "I paid with my verified PayPal account, do I still have to do this?" Yes, we do receive reversals from even verified PayPal accounts. "How many times will I be asked to verify?" Once you verify an order, a note will be made in your account. In most cases, you will not be asked to verify again.

  • What is a trademark notice?

    You may need to acknowledge a trademark notice when you register a domain with us. Here is what the notice will say: You have received this Trademark Notice because you have applied for a domain name which matches at least one trademark record submitted to the Trademark Clearinghouse. You may or may not be entitled to register the domain name depending on your intended use and whether it is the same or significantly overlaps with the trademarks listed below. Your rights to register this domain name may or may not be protected as noncommercial use or "fair use" by the laws of your country. Please read the trademark information below carefully, including the trademarks, jurisdictions, and goods and service for which the trademarks are registered. Please be aware that not all jurisdictions review trademark applications closely, so some of the trademark information below may exist in a national or regional registry which does not conduct a thorough or substantive review of trademark rights prior to registration. If you have questions, you may want to consult an attorney or legal expert on trademarks and intellectual property for guidance. If you continue with this registration, you represent that, you have received and you understand this notice and to the best of your knowledge, your registration and use of the requested domain name will not infringe on the trademark rights listed below. There will also be trademark information regarding the domain name you entered listed below this content. If you acknowledged the trademark already and would like to see the trademark information for the domain name you purchased, you will need to create an order for that same domain name using another top-level domain (TLD) as the extension. (Please be aware this notice may not show for all TLDs.) Then you can select "Money Order/Check" as your payment type and hit "Submit." You should see the trademark information on the next page. Then you can simply edit your cart to remove the domain name.

  • One of your customers is violating my copyright. Will Dynadot help me?

    Dynadot respects the intellectual property rights of others and is committed to protecting such rights where they exist. If you believe your copyright or other intellectual property right is being violated by one of our customers, please submit a Copyright Complaint. Be sure to forward us any evidence or proof of infringement so that we may better serve you. We will initiate an investigation and take action where we find conclusive proof of infringement. Please be aware that in some cases we may require you to provide us with a court order or administrative order before we are able to assist you. We reserve the right to take no action on copyright complaints without the backing of an order issued by a court of law or an administrative body. You may also obtain resolution by contacting the domain or website owner directly and demanding that they "cease and desist." You can find out who the owner is by using our Whois Lookup. If the owner is using our domain privacy, you can call, email, or mail them at the contact information provided and we will forward your message on to them. We encourage all complainants to utilize this approach before submitting a formal copyright complaint to Dynadot. Has someone claimed you're violating their copyright?

  • What is a Counter-Verification?

    A Counter-Verification is a signed and certified document that you submit to us in order to dispute a Copyright Complaint that a third party has lodged against you. By submitting a counter-verification, you are certifying under penalty of perjury any facts and/or evidence that refute the claims of copyright infringement regarding your domain name and/or website. A counter-verification must include all of the following: Your full name (first, middle, last). Your address (physical address, not a PO Box or mail service). Your telephone number, including country code if not the United States. Your fax number, if you have one (optional). Your email address. A submission of documents, evidence, and/or an explanation to negate the copyright infringement claim made against you. Your declaration that it is your good faith belief that the use of the material complained of is authorized by the copyright holder (aka the complainant), or otherwise permitted under the law, or that the complainant does not have a legally enforceable copyright claim. Your declaration, under penalty of perjury, that the information you are providing regarding the infringing material and the copyright is accurate. Your signature (may be electronically signed). Let us clarify the types of evidence we would accept to support your counter-verification with a few examples. We would accept, for instance, evidence that the complainants gave their express permission to you to republish or resell their materials. Also, we would accept identification of and copies of the text of a statute, law, or regulation recognized by either United States law or the International Berne Convention, that lawfully permits your use of the material. Still another example is if you can provide documents or proof that the complainant somehow does not own a legally enforceable copyright. If more than one copyright complaint has been lodged against you, we will require you to submit a separate counter-verification for each complaint. We must receive counter-verifications by the deadlines specified in our notices and emails. If we do not receive your documents in a timely fashion, you run the risk of your services being terminated. You may submit your counter-verification to us by fax, email, or postal mail, as follows: Fax: +1 (415) 869-2893 Email: [email protected] Mail: P.O. Box 345, San Mateo, CA 94401 Once we receive your counter-verification, we evaluate it for completeness and accuracy under the standards set forth above. If we determine that the counter-verification is satisfactory, then we may restore your services (if disabled), and/or request that the complainant seek a court or administrative order to disable your services.

  • Someone stole my Dynadot account! How can I get it back?

    If this is the first time this has happened to you, we will make a one-time exception and help you get your Dynadot account back once you have proven that you are indeed the true account owner. In regards to any subsequent account break-ins, we cannot help you get your account back since you and you alone are responsible for the security of the account. Dynadot has invested a good amount of effort into maintaining the security of our system. It is the sole responsibility of the creator of the account to keep the account safe and secure. This is clearly stated in our Service Agreement under Part 1, Section 6, Account Security. We urge you to choose a password with a healthy mixture of numbers and letters and change it often to keep your account safe to avoid any account break-ins.

  • Do you have a Payout Policy?

    Yes, we provide payouts for account credit with the following conditions: Please request a refund to the original payment method if the order is still eligible for a refund. There is a 5% fee on account credit that is paid out to cover costs associated with the transaction. The minimum payout amount in USD that can be requested is $100 USD. The minimum payout amount in CNY that can request is 700 yuan. Payouts are made via PayPal to the email that you specify. Payouts via Alipay are available for account credit in CNY and are made to the account associated with the email or phone number that you specify. Payouts by check are also available for account credit in USD. Because PayPal charges extra fees to payout International accounts, there may be an additional cost for payouts under $500 USD. Requesting a payout of less than $500 USD can result in additional fees. You may be required to verify account details. Updating your account information will trigger a month long waiting period. Payout requests can be denied if we are unable to verify the account holder, fraudulent activity has been identified, or is suspected in connection with the account making the request. First time payout orders will take longer, it can take a minimum of seven to ten business days to complete. Subsequent payout orders can take two to five business days to complete. NOTE: Dynadot is not responsible for any additional fees that may be charged by PayPal. Accounts must be active for at least 6 months if you are requesting a payout. Withdraws of prepay credit upon which a bonus have been received or granted will result in the bonus being forfeited.
