How to Remove Unauthorized Listings from Sedo

It is frustrating to see a domain name I own listed for sale on a sales venue without my permission. Sometimes these listings are from a prior owner, sometimes they are done in error, and sometimes they’re fraudulent. Not only can this prevent a domain registrant from listing names that are already listed, a potential buyer could see the name listed for a lower price and have that price in mind when subsequently negotiating a purchase.

When I see one of my names listed for sale somewhere without my permission, I quickly contact my account manager or the support team to request the removal of the listing ASAP. Every sales venue has a procedure for reporting unauthorized listings.

This morning, a tweet from someone I don’t know came across my timeline, and his question was one I could answer. Cemel mentioned that some of his domain names were listed for sale via Sedo without his permission:

In my experience, Sedo customers and domain owners can send an email to security@sedo.com to report unauthorized listings on the platform. The team managing that account will either request more information to verify that the person who emailed is the rightful owner or will delete the listing because they can see the submitter is the registrant.

I think it can be helpful to submit a screenshot of the domain name in your registrar account or some other form of verification to avoid a long back and forth.

  1. Well – the brut force way to find unwanted listings is list them all on NameJet – and they will reject any domain that is listed elsewhere
