They weren't helpful at all when I had a problem with the payment, I told them everything the bank told me, I sent the money as soon as I could, but there was a delay and they wouldn't assist me "until they received the money", they didn't care about me having sent the money from the start, I have now been waiting for more than a month. They closed my account not even informing me at the begining, so I took longer because I had to talk to the bak and figure ou what happened, a very unpleasant experience

Stole my domain and then auctioned it off without notice. They have hidden $10 USD "late renewal" fee. Avoid these scammers.
We are very transparent about our late renewal fee and information about it can be found in help files such as this one:
https://www.dynadot.com/community/help/question/late-renewal-fee

Additionally, we send out frequent domain expiration emails before your domain expires to ensure that you renew your domain without the added fee. We're more than happy to look into any issues you may be facing. Please email our support team at info@dynadot.com with the subject line "WHTop Review" so we can assist.

Dynadot News / Press release

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 ...

DYNADOT do NOT register domains straight away!!!

You register domain names @ Dynadot and they will still be unregistered and left for ANYONE to register more than 24 HOURS LATER!!!

The last thing you need!

Every single time you register domains @ Dynadot you have to then contact them directly to ask ‘permission’ to register domains. EVERY TIME!

Absolutely NOT user friendly or domainer friendly!

Totally unbelievable that Dynadot does NOT register the domains straight away in 2019 !!
Hi there, sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with us, and thank you for the feedback. To clarify, orders are processed automatically after payment is received, however, if our system decides an order needs manual approval, it must be reviewed and processed by our orders team.

Do not trust Dynadot with your domain name.
Dynadot has the world's slowest response from the accounts team.

Just take a look at the complaints on their own forum and judge for yourself when you see how they respond.

Do not trust Dynadot with your domain name.

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.

All in all, stay away from them, or at least don't go for their Lemon server because It's like [read more...]

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..
Buyer beware [read more...]
Hi Philip, we apologize for the negative experience you had with us. I see that you were able to resolve the issue with our customer service team to lift your auction ban. If there is anything else we can help you with, don't hesitate to email us at info@dynadot.com.

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:
