  • Why is my domain in "Buy Lock" status?

    When you purchase a domain through our Domain Marketplace, our system automatically places it in "Buy Lock" status for 30 days. The domain can still be used during this time, i.e. you can still set your name servers, DNS, etc. However, you will not be able to move the domain to another Dynadot account or transfer the domain to another domain registrar.The reason for this lock is to prevent fraud. This lock helps protect our sellers from not being compensated for their domain and then losing the domain because the buyer transferred it out.After the 30-day period has passed, the "Buy Lock" will automatically be removed. NOTE: This is different than the "Auction Lock" that is placed on Expired Auction domains.

  • What is the "Domain Sale" process for your Marketplace?

    Our Marketplace has many domains listed for sale. Our "Domain Sale" process is structured to help potential buyers purchase the domain they want immediately without the hassle of contacting the seller directly. This benefits the seller too since it helps them sell more domains with less work. Here's how it works: A seller lists a domain for sale at a specific price in our Marketplace. An interested buyer sees this domain for sale and decides to buy it. He/she adds the domain to their shopping cart, checks out, and submits payment. If the domain is registered with another registrar, the domain transfer fee will be displayed on the domain listing page and added to the final price. Our system automatically moves the domain to the buyer's Dynadot account so they can use the domain immediately. The domain will stay on a "Buy Lock" status for 30 days. This prevents the buyer from moving the domain to another Dynadot account or transferring the domain to another domain registrar. The sale proceeds are credited to the seller's Dynadot account (minus a 10% Marketplace commission fee) after the processing period ends. NOTE: Dynadot marketplace commission fee is 10% of the sold price. There is no listing fee at this time. The processing period will take 5-7 days. The sale proceeds are credited as Dynadot account credit, but can be paid out on request. What other ways can you earn on Dynadot?Participate in our Refer-a-Friend program.
