Helga, a famous “Sedobot.”

The average domain investor spends too much time doing things that should take care of themselves.

Repeating small tasks across a portfolio of hundreds or even thousands of domains, adds up considerably.

Consider this, for example: Adding domains you acquired, to your Sedo account.

Selling a name at Sedo begins with listing the domain name, by using the “Add Domains” interface.

The problem is, no matter where you bought your domain, from an auction, a domain forum, a private seller, or a drop catch service, there is a decent chance the name is already in someone’s account at Sedo.

It might even not be that of the previous owner.

In that situation the domain is not added to your account immediately, and enters the “Pending Verification” state.

Sedo employees, also known as “Sedobots,” are usually pretty good about getting the names added quickly, by checking the WHOIS data.

But quite often, it just doesn’t work that way.

After several days, if Sedo cannot verify the domain’s ownership, the name stays in the other party’s account.

No worries, we have a solution for you.

If a name you own is not added to your account at Sedo, and is still listed for sale, there is a sure fire way to get it removed from the suspect account at which point you can easily add it to yours.

  • Step 1: Make an obscenely high bid, in the eight or nine figures USD.
  • Step 2: Wait for the suspect account owner to get up off the floor, after they realize they no longer own the domain; then reluctantly delete the domain from their account.
  • Step 3: Add the name your account.

That’s it. 😀

    Sounds like a logical solution. It could also become pretty funny if the previous owner attempted to pretend to still own it to sell to the current owner, not knowing they are dealing with the new owner. :p

  2. Solution: don’t use Sedo.
