Dynadot is a great company. Nowhere better to register one’s domain names.
- fair prices
- great backend interface
- fast loading website (for a domain registrar where one spends a lot of time doing repetitive actions, speed is extremely important
- telephone support
But lately Dyandot has been getting a lot of bad press for purportedly selling names their customers are searching for.
When doing bulk seraches for available names, make sure you stay away from DYNADOT. In the last few days I had few names I queried about (that were avaibale at the time) registered by somebody else withing 24-48 hrs. (including some by that notorious serial registrant "Mrs. Jello" from this board).
Dynadot is obviously selling their query logs to the likes of that slimy character, so beware.
Okay, world, take a deep breath. This does happen. Last year there was a domain that I really, really wanted. I’d spent a week thinking about the name, looking at what was available and finally leaped, two days after having queried initially. Bingo, the domain was gone. This was on the .at registrar.
This was not a topical, news type domain name so it had nothing to do with collective consciousness or spiritus mundi.
