    Domains using our forwarding service should still automatically have an SSL certificate generated and applied, would it be possible to PM us with the affected domains so we could investigate that further? Thank you.

    I'm sorry, we don't have any transfer discounts available for .COM domains at this time, unfortunately.

    Well, this is a first for Dynadot. I stay away from other registrars & go to Dynadot because of such stories.

    What was the domain? I've seen some members here dig up some stuff when such things happen, stuff to help the domainer. So it might help to share it publicly.

    Not to heap on the pain but I recently took part in a Dynadot auction and initially did not win the domain.

    There were only two bidders in this auction. Myself and one other bidder.

    Unfortunately the other bidder did not pay so I was then crowned the winner as the second highest bidder (and only other bidder).

    I was surprised when I was asked to pay my full proxy bid even though it was a 'fake' buyer who bid this auction up.

    I was then told my account would be banned if I did not pay.

    As many complaints as there are about GoDaddy at least they roll back to the lowest real bid, but this is obviously not how it works at Dynadot.

    When such things allegedly happen at GoDaddy, their rep. usually addresses some aspects of a situation here on the forum, which is a positive.

    Maybe someone from @Dynadot would do the same here? Since Dynadot is beloved & this is highly unusual. Hope you can clear things up

    Our team can review auctions such as this on a case-by-case basis to check for proxy bidding, we'd just need to ask you to contact our support team if this occurs in the future. You are also under no obligation to pay for an auction if you are offered the domain as the second-highest bidder, and no bans or restrictions are placed on your account if you decide not to pay for the auction if you were the second-highest bidder.

    @Dynadot, I have several CC.org domains registered with you, but when buyers enter them into search, they see an error instead of information that the domain can be bought. Could you please clear up this misunderstanding?

    I'm sorry about that, and thank you for letting us know. I have forwarded this on to our team for investigation and we'll let you know when we have an update on this.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond.

    Is it not possible to update your billing system to default to the lowest valid bid?

    It's a little misleading to send an invoice for the full proxy bid when that is not the lowest valid bid.

    I can imagine many users have simply paid your invoices as the second auction winner without realising their auction may have been manipulated.

    Does Dynadot have a Discount Club for better pricing, similar to GoDaddy?
