Step 1 : Purchasing a domain name
Search for a domain and click Buy Now, a checkout window will open to complete the payment using Paypal
After successful payment confirmation, an email is sent to the email address associated with the Paypal account, this email communication is required to initiate ownership transfer of the domain, this process is detailed below (Step 2)
Step 2 : Gaining ownership of a purchased domain name
- Domains are managed at Dynadot.com, to transfer ownership of a purchased domain name, a Dynadot.com account will be needed, if the buyer does not have one, a new account can be created for free, to know more about account creation : How do I create a Dynadot.com account?
- As stated in Step 1, after successful payment completion an email is sent to the email address associated with the buyer's Paypal account requesting the buyer's Dynadot.com forum name to initiate the transfer
- A forum name is used to transfer a domain from one Dynadot.com account to another (Caution: do not confuse this with the Dynadot.com username), only the forum name is needed to transfer domain ownership, to know more about forum name : How do I find my Dynadot.com forum name?
- Buyer sends the Dynadot.com forum name by replying to the email, a domain transfer agent then initiates the ownership transfer within 48 hours of receiving the Buyer's Dynadot.com forum name
Buyer will then receive an email from Dynadot.com to accept the ownership transfer, on accepting, the buyer becomes the new owner of the domain, the process is now complete and transaction is marked as fulfilled, Buyer can start using the domain eg. configure DNS, change Contact Details etc
