    Pretty crappy service by Dynadot on its expired auctions platform. I'm aware that names sometimes get renewed and, in that case, you don't end up with the name even if you win the auction. But in my case the name wasn't even renewed. Was a name at another registrar that Dynadot auctions off on its expired auction platform and the other registrar confirmed that the name was not renewed and will be deleted, but for some reason Dynadot says too bad. Although I haven't read the terms, it seems like that should be violation of the expired auction terms. In any event, it is crappy.

    I'm sorry to hear about this, would it be possible to PM us with the domain name and your Dynadot username so we could look into what happened there?

    Domain names would be listed for auction 10 days prior to the end of their grace renewal period, and the auction would last for 7 days. For most domains that would be 30 days after their expiry date, although that would vary for TLDs that don't have a 40-day grace renewal period.
