childish behavior
I ordered a domain from them and everything was good then they cancel my account and keep my domain.

I'm still shocked at what happened and I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else.

Very poor service
Hi,

Well, Dynadot was one of the worst experiences I've ever had with any web hosting company (and I have tried quite a few).

First i subscribed to their cheapest hosting plan just to find out that it has no cpanel, and only their own made panel which literally useless so I added like 60$ to upgrade my plan and get a Cpanel. their plan said that you get a bandwidth of 200GB but soon enough I discovered that just a handful of visitors at the same time caused lags (very bad lags), I contacted them various times to check where was the problem and they always replied that my website is not optimized, and that their server CPU can't handle my websites load. I barely get 2000 visits a day and their hosting which has like "200GB" bandwidth or what not can't handle it.

I can't stress how bad their service is, my website was experiencing lags, downtimes, and everything in between.

From humble beginnings, we have grown steadily and now serve thousands of customers from 108 different countries around the world.

Company Philosophy
Our goal is to provide our customers with world class registration and hosting services for a reasonable price.

Financial Stability
Dynadot is a debt-free, privately held company. Our solid financial infrastructure provides stability in an industry where companies appear and disappear frequently. We plan to operate and grow this business for a long time, and we do not intend to go public or become acquired by a faceless corporation.

* We support bulk modification of whois info, transfer locks, and name servers.

IDNers (Internationalized Domain Name Investors)

* We have an engineer on staff with extensive IDN experience. If he doesn't know the answer to your IDN question, he will ask the central registry on your behalf.
* We offer IDN pre-orders prior to a new language release. As soon as the new language is online, we will try to get the domain for you.
* Our registration software was designed from the ground up to support IDNs. Domains are displayed in both Punycode and UTF-8 in the account area.
* We are constantly adding new IDN languages to our system, as they become available.

Wikileaks Gag Sparks Freedom Debate - Following an order last week from a US federal judge, the US arm of whistle-blower website Wikileaks.org was taken down, sparking a debate online concerning free speech, and whether free speech applies in these circumstances.
On Friday, February 15, Swiss bank Julius Baer (juliusbaer.com) succeeded in obtaining an order demanding that the site's host take down Wikileaks, a site that enabled insiders to anonymously leak incriminating documents to the public. Dynadot (dynadot.com) the US-based host that served the Wikileaks main site, reportedly agreed not only to take down the site, but to block the wikileaks.org domain from being transferred to another provider, and to turn over records related to the site, including IP addresses and other data used by people accessing the domain name's account.While the US site is currently down, overseas versions of the site remained active as of Wednesday. A mirror of the site is online here.Wikileaks caught Julius Baer's attention when a former ... [search all dynadot.com news]

I have been Banned from there auction site for for not paying for a domain I purchased when in reality it prepaid before I even placed a bid on the auction. the customer service team is extremely rude and now not even replying to my phone calls or emails, after a while they did credit back my PayPal account for the prepay , but will not respond to my request to lift the ban.they continue you ramble about there great security in preventing false registrations, I guess you are guilty until proven innocent with these guys, good luck transferring or selling domains out of this registrar, I have an email from them stating how they have kept peoples domains for themselves ,because the customer did not meet there security standards.
At this point I can only complain about there low level customer service department, because I have not been able to get through to anybody higher up in the firm and I can not believe the company policy is to treat there customers so badly..

I suffered attacks and and was defrauded by Dynadot.com I complained on the them to the Better Business Bureau. When they found out Dynadot decided to act like the typical criminal and deleted my account. Currently they are being investigated by the Attorney General. Keep away from this nightmare Dynadot.com
To clarify a few things, Mr. Johnz never ordered web hosting with us. He only registered domain names with us. We were never his WebHost provider.

The complaint Mr. Johnz brought against us was dismissed in our favor by the BBB. We also have an A+ rating with the BBB:

We are not under investigation by the Attorney General. You can contact them using the information found here:
