Dynadot’s site builder enables users to create blogs, set up an e-store, or launch a professional website with just a few clicks.

Sites built through Dynadot are hosted on their Virtual Private Servers (VPS) at no additional cost.


Overview

While Dynadot might initially seem like the right website builder for your needs, it’s no match for more popular website builders like Wix.

Dynadot’s site builder enables users to create blogs, set up an e-store, or launch a professional website with just a few clicks. With the drag-and-drop editor, users can add photos or text, put up forms and social media sharing buttons, and configure SEO settings with ease. The built-in style editor allows the customization of fonts, colors, transparencies, and page metadata settings. Plus, there’s also a Code Editor so that more advanced users with programming knowledge can insert custom code onto their web pages. Companies considering Dynadot as a host will also be happy to know that the platform allows the creation of multiple contributor accounts with varying levels of access, so companies can assign accounts to employees without giving away full administrative control.

Dynadot sets itself apart by not only providing a website building platform but also domain registration and transfer services. SSL certificates are available (and recommended!) for e-commerce sites. Sites built through Dynadot are hosted on their Virtual Private Servers (VPS) at no additional cost. Dynadot also offers e-mail hosting services with the inclusion of a static website, making it convenient for companies to do e-mail marketing via their platform.

Dynadot’s website builder is free to use. However, remaining on the free plan limits you to a single created page, albeit a mobile-friendly one. For unlimited pages, your own registered domain, removal of ads, access to the custom code editor, e-commerce functionality, and unlimited collaborators, you’ll have to opt for the Commercial plan.

Competitive price - incompetent support

The suppport is not competent to help with anything remotelly more complicated - like transferring DNS records from another registrar. i just needed to copy DNS records and since they have slightly different entry fields asked their guidance. It took an hour for them to understand what is needed. then finally got detailed instructions on how to do it. Asked them to review and confirm that all is good. as a result site was down. next day the support again could not figure out that somebody needs to enter DNS records. Were given clearly nonsensical guidance. after lot's of back and forth got problem resolved, but it is a huge time and energy waste. Unless you can know things yourself and do not need their support, you should better stay away from this time drain. a few saved bucks are not worth it.

DYNADOT IS THE WORST COMPANY!!!

DYNADOT IS THE WORST COMPANY!!!DYNADOT DEALS ARE BS!!!You place an order, they take your money, don’t register the domains, steal your time, keep you waiting and still don’t register the domains!!! Even in the small chance they register the domains after repeatedly telling them to they cancel the order so it is still the same as not registering the domains in the first place!!!DYNADOT = BS!!!

BAD DYNADOT

DYNADOT do NOT register domains straight away!!!You register domain names @ Dynadot and they will still be unregistered and left for ANYONE to register more than 24 HOURS LATER!!!The last thing you need!Every single time you register domains @ Dynadot you have to then contact them directly to ask ‘permission’ to register domains. EVERY TIME!Absolutely NOT user friendly or domainer friendly!Totally unbelievable that Dynadot does NOT register the domains straight away in 2019 !!

Bottom line on dynadot
