Last Friday, Sedo informed its parking customers about a malicious Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack the company was facing, which impacted its parked domain names. Apparently, Sedo techs were able to alleviate most of the affects of the attack within a few hours.
This morning, the company provided an update to SedoPro customers informing them that the company has “not been monetizing optimally since that day.” In light of this, the company wants to inform customers that they aren’t going to lose money as a result of this attack and stated, “we will be compensating you for the parking decrease, should you be affected by it.” Details about how this will be done have not been released yet.
I don’t park domain names with Sedo, so I am not exactly sure how much of an impact the DDoS has had on parking, but hopefully the company will make everyone whole. More information about this will be provided when I hear more.

“Last Friday, we informed you of a malicious D-DOS attack resulting in a variety of technical consequences. Most of these issues were resolved within a few hours. However, based on your good feedback and internal analysis, it has become obvious that we have not been monetizing optimally since that day, therefore showing lower revenues in your account than were shown before March 9. This is mainly caused by the feed used for the related links.
Please be assured that we will be compensating you for the parking decrease, should you be affected by it. Details will follow as soon as possible.
Obviously our parking tech team is working non-stop to resolve it today, before the weekend, so that your earnings are displayed correctly again.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience and will update you as soon as possible with news. Your Account Manager is available for any questions you may have.
Thank you, and wishing you a sunny weekend!
