I had about 6 domains and had been happy with dynadot until I had to move one domain out... They just blocked me by saying my account name doesn’t match my ID card...

Very inefficient, customer careless and unprofessional support.

Based on my experience, I don't recommend them to anyone looking for a clean and transparent experience..

I have an additional four domains on Dynadot, and have just transferred my primary domain over to it from GoDaddy, since it was up for renewal shortly. The transfer got me a one-year extension for $10.99, and privacy for $3 extra. GoDaddy's prices seem to have been going up and up, as renewing there would have cost me $15, plus $10 extra for the privacy option. When also considering the constant upselling mentioned by everyone else who has used GoDaddy, I'm quite happy to have left GoDaddy for good in favor of Dynadot. Dynadot manages to act like a reputable business and doesn't try to take money for things I don't want at every opportunity.

Absolutely a ripoff. I paid $10.99 per domain and there was no order confirmation before my dynadot balance was charged. They simply and quickly charged my account balance. No courtesy shown when I asked support that I will prepay another $400 and you credit me the extra $2 charged after I add $400 prepay so I could be eligible for the bulk pricing. This was just minutes after I paid 10.99 and asked support.

Such Ripoff. Not recommended

While they rarely have big sales, pricing is very consistent with no hidden fees or charges. In the 5 years I've been with them, the price of a domain has changed by less than $1. Straightforward, upfront, and with great customer support too.

The marketplace is a nice feature too.

Been a Dynadot user for nearly 5 years (Dec '09).

They aren't the cheapest registry around, but you can be sure that their prices will remain constant. There are no hidden fees and renewal costs are minimal. I have full faith that they will be around for many more years to come and are my go-to when needing a new domain.

The control panel is nice, easy to use and lets you have full control over the domain and nameservers. This includes using Dynadot's email, DNS and domain redirection free of charge.

They provide two-factor auth and also have an API for you to manage your domains.

I've been using Dynadot for over two years and I've been really happy with them. Their prices are some of the cheapest I've found, and while they don't usually have $0.99 sales like some other registrars do, I know I can trust their pricing to be stable and not have hidden fees or a huge increase upon renewal.

I like the management interface and how it allows grouping domains into folders so that settings can be changed for multiple domains all at once. The ability to quickly transfer domains between accounts at Dynadot is nice, and two factor authentication is also a nice security feature.

I like that they provide additional basic features like email forwarding, basic DNS, and domain redirection. This allows me to quickly set up a decent placeholder for a new domain without having to log in to my hosting provider's control panel. Their API is nice, but one downside is that it only allows one request at a time.

Their support has always been helpful and very responsive when I have had a question about any of their various services.
