    The bid winner will surely feel like he took a collective punch in his stomach after realizing it was L. 🤣🤣🤣

    Dynadot should fix the way domains are displayed.

    They need to be displayed in both upper and lower case to avoid this type of thing.

    I think that sale will be a hard flop. Hard to imagine they were intentionally bidding up a typo. They thought it was the real word.

    Can you imagine paying 20K for what you think is a high value dictionary word and find out after the fact you bought a typo?

    That "l" is the difference between a $20k domain and $20 domain!
    That's why I use this tool i or L checker

    the buyer took an L in multiple ways 🤭 on a serious note have seen the same thing happen on squadhelp multiple times - still surprised people aren't pasting names directly into google before committing money (or replying to suspicious looking emails)

    You should watch-out of domains typo. It's will be better if you copy and past the domain on google to double check.

    It's happened to me yesterday, I have almost bid on the following domain amercianeagle.com on Namejet, I thought it was American Eagle.

    I saw this when it was still at 500 bucks and copy and pasted the name into a search bar which shows what it is. To be fair to Dynadot they listed the name all in the same case (lower) which is probably the default. More fool the bidders I say.

    GD auctions already showing that simple lower/upper case variations of the domain name:

    It's not that hard at the programming side.
    This is shame of dynadot. They should think it while developing that page.

    If I were them, I would make a full refund to the buyer and ban that scammer in a moment.

    I wonder if you can actually request a refund for this kind of situation (false advertising).

    @Dynadot should definitely do something about and start displaying both variations.

    i have sold a domain on Dan, later the buyer said he had mistaken and asked for refund Dan refunded it.
    Dan paid me some money as excuse I appreciate it but I decided do not use Dan anymore and removed my portfolio from the platform.

    Good luck with that, a very embarrased "buyer" I would think.

    I believe that previous owner has renewed the name. At Dynadot you need to wait 3-5 days after winning the auction to take control over it. Name is now on "Make offer".
