Want to register a new domain name for cheap? Looking for an affordable web hosting service provider? Dynadot might be your answer.
Dynadot is an internet company that was founded in 2002. It is an ICANN approved registrar that provides the following three services:
- Domain registration.
- SSL certificates.
- Email Hosting.
- Web hosting.
Registering a new domain name is easy with Dynadot. The user must enter the domain name of his/her choice in the text box they see on the Dynadot website. Then, they must click the search button.
If a DN is available for purchase, you’ll see a “The domain is available” message on the screen and the pricing. If it is not available for registration, Dynadot will display alternate domain names you can register. DN is one of the cheapest domain registrars. Like Namesilo, it charges only $6.99 for new .com domain registration & $7.99 to $90 for renewing domain names. Here’s the pricing of popular TLDs on Dynadot:
|Extension||Price in USD|
Once you buy a DN and log in to your account, you can manage renewals, nameservers, etc. Dynadot lets users enable privacy for their domain. When you enable this feature by clicking the toggle option, DN will hide your address, phone number, etc from appearing in whois search results.
Why should you opt for domain privacy?
If your whois details are public, marketing professionals will call you to sell a service, product, etc. They’ll use a website scraping tool to get your email address from the Whois database. If the Whois information is hidden, no one excluding the domain owner and the registrar will know the website owner’s contact details.
Apart from .com, you can register over 50 types of domains with Dynadot. If you look for a domain on Dynadot, DN will show a list of the same domain ending with all supported extensions.
Apart from registering a domain name, Dynadot enables users to purchase SSL certificates. The domain registrar is selling a normal SSL certificate for $17 and wild card certificates for $80. The certificates employ a 256-bit encryption algorithm. They are detected by 99% of browsers. The domain name registrar has partnered with GlobalSign for issuing SSL certificates.
