I do appreciate the feedback as we want to improve as much as possible!
The fact that Dynadot was voted #1 registrar of the year indicates that you are already doing an excellent job.

So, hopefully you can find a way to help new customers have access to withdrawing their funds faster than six months, while still keeping the scallywags and scoundrels away!

Well done Dynadot. Thanks for finally making it easier to push domain names to other Dynadot users. Explaining to people how to find their forum names was a hassle for both parties. Now it's easy. Just tell newbie domain buyer to create Dyna account and ask them for their username and email associated with account and, bam, done. Dyna even made it possible to create a unique username to transfer to other than Dyna login username. Add the email address association with account and boom, done. Super easy, way better than before with "forum name" method.

Hi Everyone,

Just a Reminder, we currently have a huge .COM Register and Transfer sale!

$8.75 for all .COM Registrations
$8.95 for all .COM Transfers with code: COMSWITCH at checkout

Both sales are active until the end of the month!

If you’re not familiar with how to Bulk Register and Bulk Transfer domains to Dynadot, here’s a quick breakdown on how to get started!

The Bulk registration tool is an excellent way to find all the domains you’re looking for at once! On our domain search page, simply select Bulk Search from the Domain Search page, and then type in the keywords you are looking for! You can search up to 20 TLD’s at once for every keyword entered! You can also do an Exact Search in which you can specify up to 2000 specific domains for our system to search for! The System will tell you which domains are available, and you can add them to your cart right from the search page!

For Bulk Transfers, you can transfer up to 1000 domains at a time, by selecting Bulk Transfer and then adding the domains and auth codes to the transfer section.

The domains should be formatted with the domain, comma, then the authorization code immediately after like so:
dynadot.com,1a2d3f4
dynadot.net,13425

If you have any questions regarding either of these or anything else Dynadot related, please feel free to either let me know or reach out to our support team at [email protected].

Cheers,
Caleb

Now the way you show the pricing for expired auctions has changed it has created some confusion as when you view an auction on the app it doesn't show the renewal price. Can you have this changed please or users are going to get stung (as I nearly was) and knowing how ruthless you guys are about banning non payers from the auctions I don't thing it's very fair if you're not showing the total cost. Thanks.

Thanks for the comment! If you select the domain auction it does show the renewal price (albeit at the bottom of the page), but I definitely see what you mean in that it could be more obvious. I'll check with my design team if we can move the renewal price to be more in focus on the expired auction page on the app!

It does on a browser but not on the app. Doesn't show it at all on the app.

'Order Received' email arrived @ 14:13 on 20th January 2023. What time did you manually cancel the renewal order because of the $40 late fee that was not requested at checkout?

I am asking given your email to me as screenshot'd, and the Whois data screenshot too.

Fix this now, Dynadot. Restore the 4 names at your cost and return them to my account.
We met middle-way and domains now restored to my account. Thanks for listening, Dynadot. 🙂

Please help
I wish I hadn't used the company's virtual debit card, and now I have to deal with Validation.com Additional Verification. ( I do not have the credit card font, which is needed by Validation.com)

Could I get the refund? Could I skip Validation.com Additional Verification and use the bank wire payment only for the company's account?

I'm too lazy for my company's sake. :)

Is there any plans to let users pay for auction wins on the app? Currently when trying to select a payment method it prompts "please visit our website to pay". Would be a lot easier to use the app as you can for renewals etc.

I know we've discussed it in the past, but I'm unsure if we have any immediate plans to add that to the app. I'll check with our team if we're still looking to add that. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks Caleb. Out of interest, what's the reasoning behind allowing payment for regs and renewals but not for auction wins? I assume its all the same payment processor/gateway?

My apologies, it appears we've already added that function! On the app, select your name in the top right hand corner, select "Summary", and then select Open Orders right from the top! You can then submit payment for any auctions right from there. Let me know if you do not see it!

As of yesterday I was still prompted to go to the website to make payment when I tried to edit payment type. I'll try again with the next one and send you a screenshot if I'm unsuccessful. Thanks.

The "Push Username" is now available in the Dynadot settings and can be edited. I think it is great that we can change it so it is not similar to our username.

That is correct! The Push Username is live as of today. If you would prefer it not to match your username, please edit it on your account settings page here: https://www.dynadot.com/account/info/settings.html

Design and function improvements on the auction listings page would be nice.

Adding a greater than ">" condition instead of specifying a range in existing filters.

Also adding these new filters:
  • By remaining time (eg "Ends in X days")
  • Minimum number of bids
In addition, it would be practical to save the adjusted filters as a template and call them quickly. In fact, it would be great to send personalized mail as new listings are added according to these filter templates.

I bought a closeout domain a couple of hours ago and was expecting to see it in my account by now. Contacted Dynadot support and found out that closeout orders are completed in "about 3 days."

Why does it take so long? Seems unnecessary : )

We may have to workshop the last point to see how feasible it would be, but I think for the most part most of those ideas are do-able! Thanks for the feedback!

We actually already have the ability to save filters. When you select the filters you're looking for, there's a blue "save" button to the right!
