  • How do I create email addresses in my Website Builder business plan?

    Our Website Builder's business plan has email built right in! There are two types of email addresses you can create: personal email and shared email. Shared mailboxes allow multiple people to access the same email inbox. This is great for businesses because, for example, each member of Team Dynadot has a personal email as well as access to shared emails such as info@dynadot.com. To create a personal email address in your Website Builder, please follow these steps to add a new user: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select the "Website Builder" tab in the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Click on the "Settings" icon (the one that looks like a gear) on the left-hand tool bar. Select the "Email" tab. Click on the "Add User" icon (it looks like a person with our Dynadot logo as its head and has a plus next to it) on the top right-hand side of the page. Enter the user's first and last name, email address (you only need to enter what will appear before "@yourdomain.com"), password, and check off if you want this email address to be "Catch All" email. You can also upload an Avatar image for them (png, jpg, jpeg, gif and max 2M). Click "Create New User" to save your new user and their personal email address. To create a shared email addresses in your website builder, please follow these steps to add a shared mailbox: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select the "Website Builder" tab in the main menu.

Click "Create" to save your new email address. Learn how to give a user access to a shared email address or how to log in to your website builder email.

If you want to connect a domain that is at another registrar to your Website Builder, you will need to transfer your domain to your Dynadot account.

Enter your username (your full email address) and password to login and check messages, create folders, or view the settings for your email address. Forgot your email password?

  • What currencies does your Website Builder shopping cart support?

    Our Website Builder business plan comes with a built-in e-commerce shopping cart. Our shopping cart is able to accept payments through Stripe. Our shopping cart supports the following currencies: USD - US Dollars ($) GBP - Great Britain Pounds (£) EUR - Euros (€) CAD - Canadian Dollar (C$) AUS - Australian Dollar (AU$) Please note that you cannot choose to offer more than one currency using our shopping cart feature. The default currency for our shopping cart is USD. You can select a different currency under the "General" tab of the shopping cart section.

  • What is a dispute within the Website Builder shopping cart feature?

    Owning and operating an online store means sometimes dealing with customer disputes. A dispute occurs when one of your customers questions your charge with their bank or credit card company. When there is a dispute, Stripe will notify you and a dispute will be created in the "Disputes" section of our Website Builder's shopping cart editor. To view your disputes, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select the "Website Builder" tab in the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Click the "Shopping Cart" tab (the one that looks like a cart) on the left-hand tool bar. Click on the "Disputes" tab. Here, you can choose to view "Open Disputes" or "Closed Disputes". Please note that you will not be able to manage your disputes from this page. This page will simply list the dispute ID, order it is associated with, and the status of the dispute from Stripe. To manage your disputes, you will need to login to your Stripe account and handle the disputes from there. Don't have any disputes because you don't have an online store? Get one (the store, not the disputes) by purchasing our Website Builder Business plan, which includes everything you need to start your store and sell your products online.
