At the heart of every good website lies a domain name. Because nobody wants to spend their time navigating to websites based off numerical IP addresses, the modern miracle of the domain name was invented.
There are a million and one domain registrars out there, but today I am talking about the one I use the most. In this Dynadot review (all updated for 2019) I’ll be taking a quick look at the key features of this platform and whether or not it is a good choice for your domain name registrations.
What Is Dynadot?
Dynadot is a domain registrar, hosting provider (they may just be a reseller themselves, I’m not actually sure) and provider of other associated services like SSL certificates.
The company has been operating under various guises since 2002, and is currently headquartered in San Mateo, California. One of Dynadot’s claims to fame is being an early registrar for Wikileaks.
How Do I Use Dynadot?
As mentioned above, Dynadot offers a broad array of hosting and domain registration services. However, I only use Dynadot for the purpose of registering domain names for my affiliate websites, ecommerce sites and so on.
I haven’t actually used their hosting, SSL, or website builder service. Next time I build an affiliate site I might give their hosting a try and then update this Dynadot review.
How Much Are Domain Registrations?
This depends on exactly which TLD you purchase. However, Dynadot’s current prices are available here. As with all good registrars, you save quite a bit of money by purchasing multiple years at once.
- ICANN fees are included with your registration price.
- Bulk and super bulk pricing available if you register large volumes of domain names.
- All top TLDs available, including all those crazy new ones you’d probably never use like .pizza
- Sometimes there are some great discounts on specific TLDs, like Buy 1 Get 1 Free on .info and so on.
Is Dynadot a worthy choice for your next domain registrar? I certainly think so! I have been using Dynadot exclusively for the past few years with no real problems of any substance to report (excluding NZ domain names where I use 1st Domains – I will be reviewing this particular registrar soon).
I cannot comment on their hosting or website builder options, but from the perspective of getting domain names registered for an affordable price, I don’t think you can go far past Dynadot. Their prices are reasonable, service is good, and a variety of payment options are available including Paypal.
Go give Dynadot a try today … you won’t be disappointed!
