if you sell your own domain name on Dynadot marketplace and if you don't list the domain name in your Sedo account ... the chances are high that you may see someone else (largely automated process) has already listed the domain @ Sedo & set a higher price than is @ Dynadot. If you make changes to your price, front-running script may change the price as well. However, if you ask Sedo to delete/remove the domain name from Sedo market, this doesn't guarantee success, bc somehow the front-runner/s auto-relist your domain name again (1-3 days).

(* There are a variety of ways in which frontrunners can play w/t aftermarkets. This is an example of [email protected] A-Market >> [email protected] B-Market)

Are you sure that Sedo's listing is not some ''leftovers'' from this name's past?
If that's not the case that I would do one of 2 things:
1) to list it on Sedo yourself. This should solve the problem, as you'll clearly be putting your TXT verification.
2) just leave it as it is. I assume if this guy by somehow is selling your domains for a higher price and someone buys from him, he'll automatically buy it from you right away for whatever price you have on that day. Hey, free commercial, you don't even need to spend 5 minutes to register it on Sedo yourself. :)

P.S. I also can tell that his price is more adequate than yours, but it's pure imo. ;)

1. 100% sure (tested and monitored since September)

2. btw. pricix is not my domain name

Regards

If you (or someone else) don't care about listing on the same platform - just leave it. If you have your landing page with your price - what to worry about? And if someone is selling it for 15000 anywhere online - let him do it :)

The point is:
In order to sell your domain name on Sedo, you will need to verify domain ownership by using DNS/TXT or proof. Once the verification process is complete, then you will be able to list on Sedo for sale. The front-runner/s may not be able to prove ownership. So, the Sedo's process of ownership verification - flush. #Large-scale

Very interesting thank you very much. Very interesting indeed
This is similar to putting a for sale sign on your car for $800 and listing it on FB marketplace.
Someone sees the listing and puts your car on other groups, local classifieds, craigslist asking $1500
Maybe you cant compare domains to cars but principle is the same. Dont sell whats not yours


This my opinion, not the opinion of namepros. Don't hold them accountable for what i say or do

Nasty one.

Discovered more pretty shady things (scam alert) going on with Dynadot market. Once I have at least 1000 examples, I will post more info

Spoiler: the domain name is listed @ Dyandot market for $1-5 but redirects to a long time developed website (different domain name & never uses - see bellow). For an inexperienced investor, looks like a jackpot.

#1 Due diligence before buying anything @ dynadot marketplace.

Example;

acspslitbolt .com redirects (masked) to the website

the real domain name for the website is

A large-scale frontrunner(s) campaigns (organized groups and a bunch of individuals) targeting registrants and investors has been detected @ DAN, Sedo & Afternic-GD. The domain may be locked for transfer for 60 days but frontrunners already made account (some of under a different email address) for each registrar - counting on push transfer.

However, there is another type of frontrunners who uses different tactics to not help you sell your domains by registering 1:1 social names. Unfortunately, some of frontrunners can obtain your personal information and use it to initiate DM ( "steal" ) contact with the prospects @ twitter, FB, Instagram etc on your behalf.

The tips above can help you recognize common tactics.

Think of listing your domains on multiple marketplaces ...

(A schematic presentation coming soon.)

This is interesting. It makes sense.

It was largely my priced domains that had conflicts @ Dan.com. The lower the price, the more conflicts culminating with around a 50% duplicate rate on the lowest ones.

Most of these domains are ones I have owned for many years, some over a decade.

The unpriced domains had a very low failure rate.

Dan.com (and others) need to do something about this practice. People are listing domains via their system that they don't own, nor have any rights to offer for sale.

Dan.com support was great and did remove the listings after they failed, but it is still a major issue in their system. As a buyer I have had several purchases canceled and refunded because the lister no longer owned the domain, or never owned the domain.

Your example and others have steadily deteriorated buyers trust (...failed transfers) and resulted in many registrants wondering if they have lost control over their own domain names / registrar accounts or aftermarket accounts. Ppl also need to be concerned about the ways that frontrunners might be affecting:

1) aftermarket assurance,
2) verification process
3) the legitimacy of transactions (fraud/scam, stolen domains, etc)

If there is one thing I am sure of, it's that domain listing verification process is outdated.
