    SoI just logged onto my efty page to load some domains and do some work and after I loaded my domain name

    VRAR.MEDIA

    I notice the website is showing a BIN button for $2995 That I did not add! I haven't even set the background for the page looking further at it and after sending EFTY one message I then realized the Email contact at the bottom of the webpage ...is not Mine!!!!! I don't know who [email protected] is but thats MY DOMAIN NAME !1 I don't want it sold for the BIN how do I fix this ASAP...efty doesn't even have a phone number ?!?!

    @Doron Vermaat @lionel_efty @DomainSherpa

    Contact Doron and Lionel .. they'll likely need you to prove ownership.

    Do you actually still have control of the domain? If not then there isn't much they can do, you'd likely need to check with your registrar if someone stole your domain itself.

    Sometimes it takes a few hours for DNS to update

    but your page VRAR.MEDIA is going to a godaddy park page on my side

    How can it be in his efty account ..when it's in my registry account and I switched the NS back....unless it's been in his account for awhile and I just noticed when I went to list it on efty?

    Currency conversion USD$2700 => £2071.35

    Relax, you have control of the domain, which is a good thing.

    Previous owner listed the domain on efty in the past (before you).

    I doubt the previous owner has anything to do with this. It's likely a glitch / conflict / bug in the application.

    Contact Doron as suggested earlier, he will be able to address the issue for you.

    I have went to www.wordr.com ,I have done a search on this site for VRAR.MEDIA ,it does not show up on this site ,which means that domain is not in this account ,the only VR Domain I seen on this site was VRHS.co.uk

    As long as you have control of your domain at GD then that's what matters most.

    What likely is going on is that the other person likely had the domain before you in the past and so the prior Efty data related to it took hold again after you forwarded the nameserves to Efty.

    I seem to recall this is expected .. When you add domains to your account, conflicting "duplicates" in the Efty system I think are marked for a manual check.

    In all fairness it's likely done that way to protect you and it makes sense. Because after you prove it's yours, even if 1000 people try to add it to their account, it will not move and stay in yours!

    Since you removed the nameserves away from efty's, I'd suggest getting in touch with @Doron Vermaat or @lionel_efty to figure out the best way to proceed with verification! :)

    Hi everyone.

    The domain name was previously managed and listed by another Efty user. Whenever somebody ads a domain name to our system which is already in the database the domain name is placed under "Review". Our system will then verifies the ownership based on the current Whois data.

    This has just been done and the owner (@DomainBarracksRob) has now been notified. The landing page for this domain name should show his own landing page now.
