> Hello Ali,
> On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation
> will take effect. This means the WHOIS will “disappear”. In the new public
> record system, personal data will no longer be visible either to
> individuals or Sedo. So far we were able to verify from the WHOIS records
> that you are the legitimate owner of the domains you listed for sale. This
> means it will be much harder for us to match your account data with the
> WHOIS information *in order to clear your domains for sale* on our site.
> The Solution: Our *Owner Self-Verification*. With the Owner
> Self-Verification, you can quickly prove your ownership of any domain you
> list for sale. Even on weekends and holidays!
> *3 steps to Owner Self-Verification*
> 1. Sedo provides you with a personal ID in your account under \”Domain
> Management\” under the tab \”Owner Self-Verification\”.
> 2. Copy it and enter it at your registrar. To do this, visit your
> registrar and make this update within the DNS settings.
> 3. Enter your verification ID into the TXT record field of your
> domains. If your registrar needs you to submit a Hostname, simply enter
> “@”. Also, if you need to enter a TTL value, please enter “3600”.
> Your ownership will be verified once the DNS information is updated. With
> your support, we can ensure that only domains that have owner-verified
> credentials are still listed on the marketplace.
> Fetch ID and Confirm Ownership
> *No Owner Self-Verification = longer wait times*
> If you do not perform the Owner Self-Verification, it will take *at least
> 3 business days* for your domains to be listed for sale. During the
> review period, we will randomly check individual domains and may contact
> you to request proof of ownership (e.g., in the form of an up-to-date
> screenshot of the domain entry).
> *Owner Self-Verification is not available for domain parking*
> If you already use Sedo\’s domain parking and forward your domains through
> our domain name servers (DNS), Owner Self-Verification is currently
> unavailable. DNS forwarding enables your domains to be automatically listed
> for sale without waiting time. As of now, nothing changes for you.
> We want to provide buyers and sellers with* a safe and user-friendly
> platform* at all times and look forward to your support. Do you have
> questions about owner verification? Our Customer Support
> Team is happy to answer them.
