You can watch the short DD intro video on the homepage to learn of all the unique opportunities, benefits and advantages of DD. There are many sites online where you can buy domains, but only DD has discount fair pricing based on third party valuations, the opportunity to trade domains with credit for your original purchase, domain parking that pays guaranteed cash and cash awards from multiple generations of referrals. DD is the only domain site that awards unlimited cash benefits with no purchase required.

Considerable planning and preparations for DD were underway for a long time, resulting in the public launch of DD on March 1, 2021.

The concept, development and operation of DD is the work of our experienced private team of seasoned innovative website developers and others involved in implementing creative ideas that can profitably benefit many people worldwide. Over the years we've had our own success using and marketing quality domains, so we know firsthand their potential for value and profitability. Millions profit from using or selling domains every day. We're “golden rule” people who love developing win-win ideas and ventures. DD is about providing a unique website that's clear, fair, honest and easy to use, where many can acquire quality profitable domains and refer others to find great domains as well and profit from their involvement with DD. We want you to enjoy using and profiting from your free DD account. If you do then our goals for DD will be realized.

Anyone in the world 18 years of age or older may register and have a DD account.

Yes. DD accounts are available to anyone anywhere in the world who is 18 or older.

It's fine for DD site visitors and account registrants to use the same computer or phone. However, an email address or bank account for receiving benefits may not be used with more than one DD account.

Yes. Any company, family or group may register and have a DD account. To register an association an authorized agent 18 or older should register the name of the association in the first name space and the agent's full name in the last name space. The agent's name may appear on only one association's DD account. The agent may also have a personal DD account. It's entirely up to the registered account agent to make sure that only authorized parties have the login information to access the association's account. DD will not be involved and will not intervene in any way with regard to any disputes arising among or between parties who may access or use any DD account.

We want to keep it simple. Each registrant agrees to always provide to DD accurate, truthful information and abide by DD's written terms, conditions and policies. DD relies on the accuracy of the information that registrants voluntarily provide. Each registrant may have only one active personal DD account at a time, and may also be the named agent on only one group account at a time, if so desired. Laws and regulations governing the sales and financial activities offered on DD will vary from place to place. Each registrant is solely responsible to know and follow any regulations or laws in effect where he or she lives that may in any way affect or govern the registrant's participation with DD. Each registrant is thus solely responsible for all of effects of a DD account.

Yes. Not only is every DD account completely free, but DD will instantly award $15 to each new account just for registering. The $15 makes a DD account better than free.

DD provides its generous cash benefits to those with free accounts for reasons that are easily understood. First, instead of paying a lot of money to ad companies in order to promote the DD site, DD channels most of those advertising dollars directly to its users who make the effort to refer others to the DD site. Besides this, DD also shares some of its profits from domain sales with those who refer others to DD, whenever any of those in the referrer's extensive referral generations buys a DD domain. Cash benefits are also awarded to those who buy a DD domain and keep it parked with DD for at least a year to patiently let it's value grow while the domain helps attract others to the DD site and its advertisers. For these reasons all DD cash benefits make good economic sense because they are a win-win approach for all around success.

Our registration system and referral benefits program work easiest and best with a uniform style of account identification consisting of just six characters that are assigned.

Yes. Involvement with DD is always entirely voluntary. You can easily choose to cancel your DD account at any time via your Profile page without providing DD with a reason why you decided to cancel, unless of course you'd like to contact us and provide a reason.

Yes, normally all personal information is deleted after 30 days has elapsed since the date of cancellation. For security reasons, cancellation requires a user to select to cancel via the Profile page on DD after logging in then click an emailed confirmation link to make it final. Clicking the link starts the 30-day delay period before deletion of personal information. This 30-day delay is put in place because some accounts may be canceled by mistake, or users canceling their accounts may change their minds and want their accounts to be reopened soon after cancellation. In addition to the personal information being deleted after the delay period following cancellation, any residual cash balance remaining in such an account will no longer be payable to the user. If an account has one or more domains parked with DD the account information will not be deleted for 90 days after cancellation is confirmed by the user. If 90 days have elapsed after cancellation confirmation with no attempt by the user to claim one or more parked domains, DD will then assume ownership of all such unclaimed parked domains. As with all aspects, policies and practices of DD with regard to its site and benefits, DD always has the right to modify any common practice at any time.

An account will only be canceled by DD for the reason of inactivity if it meets ALL of three criteria: 1) The user has not logged in to DD in six months, AND 2) The user has no new direct (first generation) referrals in that same six months, AND 3) The user has no domains cash-parked or posted for sale on DD.

Never. Junk or spam email will at no time be sent to you from or in cooperation with DD. Unless you intentionally choose to receive general promotional emails from DD or any of its onsite advertisers you won't receive any communications from or through DD except those direct messages deemed by DD to be important to you as a DD registrant.

Definitely not. Your privacy and the security of your private information will always be strongly protected by DD. Except in the rare event of some legitimate court order for legally required compulsory compliance issued to DD, DD will never allow your private information or email address to be shared, traded or sold without your permission.

You can change your email address or other information at any time via your Profile page when you're logged in to DD.

If any issue or disagreement arises between a site user or account registrant and DD that remains unresolved after an attempt is made at congenial communication to a point of mutual satisfaction, the site user or registrant may then either choose to continue to go forward using the DD site, leaving the disputed matter as one unable to be resolved, or the account registrant may choose to simply cancel the DD account. The voluntary use of the DD website and the likewise voluntary opportunity provided by DD to be a DD account registrant is entirely in the nature of a privilege and not in any sense a right of any party. Thus, the final disposition of any matter is ultimately determined by DD. DD has the sole right and option to deal in any way deemed to be in its best interest without any further recourse of or compensation due to any DD site user or account registrant.

Even great things can be improved, and DD is among them. We don’t have a monopoly on all of the good ideas out there, so if you have an idea or suggestion you think could make DD better or easier to use, even if it's a small one, we'd like to hear about it through our Contact Us page. We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to be helpful to us and those who use the DD site. Perhaps you'll see your suggestion appear on DD as a welcome improvement.

No. Our site users and account registrants are not in any way contracted with DD, nor are they in any sense employees, commissioned agents or representatives of DD. Any cash benefits or “earnings” arising from any activities on the DD site are voluntary awards provided by DD. They are not in any sense obligations, tips, wages, salaries or payments for services. Any statistics or accounting on the DD site are there strictly for the benefit of the voluntary DD account registrants for their personal disposition. Until and unless there are changes in the law affecting DD site benefits and awards we leave all outside accounting and tax-related matters up to registrants, their accountants and their relationship with regulations or laws of their jurisdiction. DD will simply display all of the site records and statistics of registrants, which are there for the benefit of the registrants who may do with any of them as they alone may choose.

No. DD does not limit the amount of awarded cash an account registrant may receive or accrue at any time. Just the opposite is true. We love to see how much each registrant can acquire in cash awards, so every registrant can go for the greatest amount possible.

Cash awards are generally posted in DD accounts instantly at the time they are awarded. Once posted in an account the cash is instantly available to be used at any time on the DD site to apply toward the purchase of domains or other things offered by DD. Cash awards in a DD account may also be delivered or left in the account to accrue as long as desired. DD makes its quarterly electronic cash deliveries on or before the 5th day following each quarter to those choosing to have their awarded cash delivered to them. Whenever the balance in a DD account reaches $50 or more by the end of a quarter, the balance will be delivered in the payment following unless the account registrant has selected to hold funds to accrue. Cash deliveries must be $50 minimum.

DD will always attempt to use and over time expand the number of trusted digital methods for making purchase payments to DD and delivering cash awards from DD. DD always has the right to use, add or discontinue the use of any payment or cash award delivery method at any time and for its own reasons. Site users are encouraged to request that DD consider using any delivery method that they may prefer. DD will take all such requests under consideration as we determine which methods will work well with the DD site and will serve our account registrants best. At present the payment methods used by DD for purchases are credit or debit card and/or use of a DD cash balance. The method of delivery for cash awards is ACH/Direct Deposit to bank account.

At any time during the first year following the date a domain is purchased from DD and cash-parked with DD that domain may be traded for any other domain offered by DD. This can be done through the registrant's Dashboard when logged in to DD. The purchase price of the domain being traded in will be fully applied toward the price of the domain that's being acquired in the trade. No cash will be refunded if the acquired domain is priced less than the price paid for the domain that's being traded in. If the domain being acquired in the trade has a higher price than the price paid for the domain being traded in the difference due may be paid to DD using any payment method available on the DD site, using any cash balance in the trader's DD account, or a combination of both.

Virtually every week there are new selected domains added to those for sale. We don't want the available number to become overwhelming, so we attempt to strike a balance between the number and the variety of the domains for sale. There will always be at least several hundred domains for review and for sale, and at times there could be over 1000. We encourage all to come to the DD site often to see the quality domains recently added.

DD primarily offers dot com (.com) domains for sale. This is because among all of the growing number and types of domain extensions (.com, .org, .net, .biz, .shop, .club, etc), dot com has always been and is still by far the world's standard extension. Dot com domains have from the start been the best known, most widely used, most easily remembered, most popular, and overall the most valuable domains online or bought, sold and held as investments. Other domain extensions of course can be useful and valuable, but it helps to have a specialty in this realm, and DD specializes in dot com domains. Domains with other extensions will be offered for sale at times by DD, but the vast majority of offered domains will be dot coms. Among the millions of dot com domains there exists a great range of quality, value, appeal and potential for web use. DD endeavors to maintain a balance among all of these factors within a pricing range that is not only affordable to the greatest number of DD buyers, but which also provides the best opportunity for DD site users to acquire multiple domains in their portfolio with a reasonably low downside risk and an attractive upside potential for considerable profit over time, whether the domain is to soon be developed for website use or held for profit.

Once a domain is purchased from DD and the transaction has been completed, the buyer has the opportunity to have the domain transferred to the buyer's full control or the buyer may leave the domain to be parked with DD (the default purchased domain status) for a 5% annual cash award for as long as the buyer determines, up to three full years. Domain controls and options are found on the domain “Dashboard” page, accessible when logged in to the DD site. Whether the purchased domain is promptly transferred to the buyer at the time of purchase, normally accomplished within 72 hours from initiation of the transfer, or whether the buyer transfers the domain later after a period of time of cash-parking it with DD, the domain will be transferred to the buyer by DD by simply placing the registration of the domain into a new account with the same domain registrar. This is known as a domain “push”. The domain registration will also be updated to reflect the buyer's contact information. The buyer can then immediately have sole control of the domain and change the DNS (domain name server) settings to direct the domain to any website of the buyer's choice. There is no transfer cost involved when DD transfers the domain to the buyer using this method. In a lease-to-own plan the transfer does not take place until and unless the lease has been fully paid, at which time a transfer of the domain can be selected promptly using the process described here. Once a buyer selects to have a domain transferred using the domain Dashboard, DD will contact that buyer via email with specific instructions, usually within 24 hours.

When a domain is purchased from DD it is cash-parked with DD by default until and unless the buyer chooses to sell, transfer or exchange it. Domains which remain cash-parked will accrue a cash benefit of 5% of the purchase price at the end of each 12-month parking period following the date of purchase, for up to three consecutive 12-month periods from the date of purchase. The 5% cash benefit is posted to the buyer's DD account at the end of each year of DD parking. We know of no other domain site that pays a fixed generous cash amount for parking a domain. If a domain purchased from DD is not intended to soon be used for a website or put up for resale, cash parking can be a great way to go. Not only is the domain potentially growing in value over time as it is cash parked with DD, but while this potential value growth is taking place the buyer can begin earning an immediate above-market-rate annual return on the cost of the domain. But there's more benefit to DD cash parking than the 5% cash earnings. As long as the domain is cash-parked with DD the re-registration fee due annually to the registrar will be paid by DD for the domain owner. Also during cash parking, DD will try to generate traffic for the domain that will hopefully assist in better traffic and profits for DD. The traffic can be very good for the domain owner because regular known domain traffic typically makes any domain more valuable. Please note that once a user selects to sell, transfer or exchange a cash-parked domain, cash parking benefits will cease and cannot be resumed. Domains acquired by exchange on DD are not themselves eligible for cash parking.

With each DD account comes automatic free tracking and cash payments from the ongoing domain purchases of 5 full generations of DD referrals. Each registrant is provided a special referral link leading to DD that can be passed on to others or used with any click able banner or ad so all of those who visit the DD site using such referral links and register for a DD account will automatically be credited to the referrer's account from that point on. Referrals on down through all 5 generations will be tracked and credited to the original direct referrer. The referrals in each generation will be able to be tracked in real time on the registrant's account dashboard. Exponential growth of the number of referrals in any DD registrant's 5 referral generations can produce a very large total number of referrals, even if only a small number of referrals directly refer others down through the generations. For example, in 5 referral generations, even if the original referrer has only 5 direct referrals and each succeeding generation has just 5 referrals per referrer, the 5 generations would still total nearly 4,000 total referrals. DD pays cash awards of 3% of all domain purchases of direct (first generation) referrals and 1% of all of the domain purchases throughout the remaining 4 generations. Even if only a small percentage of those in the 5 generations purchase one or more DD domains, the total cash awards paid to the original referrer can amount to thousands of dollars. Better still, an additional generation of referrals will be added to the initial 5 generations each time the original referrer chooses to purchase a domain from DD, up to 5 additional generations, making a potential total of 10 referral generations. Each additional referral generation can add more referrals than the total number of combined referrals in all of the prior generations before it. Just as with generations 2 through 5, DD will pay a 1% cash award for all ongoing domain purchases in generations 6 through 10. It is not at all unrealistic that referring others to DD could become a very profitable part time or full time pursuit, or that doing so may at least produce significant ongoing cash.

There is no activity requirement to receive ongoing cash awards from referrals except a DD account can be canceled due to general inactivity if it meets ALL of three criteria: 1) The account registrant has not logged in to DD in six months AND 2) The registrant has no new direct (first-level) referrals in that same six months AND 3) The account registrant has no domains on DD.

You'll find your unique referral link on your Referral Tools page after you login to DD.

If your contemplated method of contacting others can be justly called spam, don't do it. You may only contact others, or display banners or other ads, and/or provide your DD referral link that brings others to the DD site, where and when a request for it has been confirmed, the information will be welcome, and/or permission has been specifically granted to distribute or display the DD ad, link or information. Be sure you know your audience when referring to DD. If there is a question or a need for clarity regarding any specific method or venue, please first direct your concern or question to DD by using the contact form on the Contact Us page. Spam complaints received by DD that indicate a violation of DD's spam policy or that in any way damages DD's reputation will generate a written notice and warning about the issue from DD. If there is no correction or ongoing observance of the DD spam policy, the violation may result in DD canceling the violator's DD account.

Yes, as long as the conditions of the lease are faithfully kept. DD continues to be the registrant of record for every lease-to-own domain until the lease terms are fulfilled. During the lease period the domain settings may be changed to point to a website meeting the lease terms by simply requesting that specific DNS settings be used. A request form for this purpose is found on the DD account dashboard. Reasons DD may deny a request for a DNS setting change may include an overdue lease payment, a request to point the DNS to a website that offers the domain for sale, or to a website that in the view of DD may diminish the value of the domain before the lease-to-own terms are entirely fulfilled.

Reasons why emails sent to you from DD may not be received by you include a possible mistake in the email address that you provided to DD, or the email sent to you went into your spam folder or was automatically sorted into another group of emails, or perhaps you have some email filter setting in place that automatically disallowed the DD email sent to you because the DD email had some characteristic that the filter was set to identify as unwanted email. Please first check the above possibilities, and if none seem to apply please contact DD and provide one or more email addresses to which you want DD to send a test email and we will try that.

If you have a referral that you believe should have appeared on your first referral generation but they do not, it may be due to one of several possibilities. It may be that there was an error or problem with the referral link that your referral used to go to the DD site so you would be credited with the referral, or your referral didn't use your referral link at all and just used the normal DD domain to go to the DD site and register. Or, perhaps you gave your ID to your referral to enter to credit you when they registered for their DD account, but your referral either didn't enter your ID or they made a mistake and entered a different ID. To attempt to discover what went wrong you should first check with your referral to find out what they did. Also ask them for their DD login ID. If you contact us and give their name and six digit DD account ID we can sometimes find out what took place and perhaps we may be able to do something to correct any error involved. However, we cannot assure that every referral error or problem can be discovered or corrected.
As we encounter other common questions sent to us we will do our best to add those questions and answers here.
