Domain Name Rejected for SEDO premium auction... Any advice?

7 replies
Hi guys I found a pretty cool domain name for my Google news site I am trying to build after buying the famous WSO. I thought it was actually a very good domain name newsonline247( . )com (do not go there I am working on the news site and its a mess I am still trying to get to grips with the WP theme)

I thought I would apply for a Premium Auction slot on SEDO and this is extract form there rejection email

Quality domain, but auction full = Your domain is of sufficient quality, but we have already received applications of even higher quality. Due to the limited space in our auction event we have given preference to these domains. Please feel free to apply again for the next auction event
I thought that was promising but one of there other reasons for rejection was this

Whois details do not match = The WHOIS information of the domain does not match the contact details listed in your Sedo account
Its definitely my domain name bought from my namecheap account under my real name so how do I go about getting this to reflect on my 'WHO IS' information.

    If you log in to namecheap, you should have the option to update your registrant details. Make sure name and address match.

      Hello.

      I read somewhere a while ago that many of the Premium names are usually those from registrars and Sedo's peers / contacts.

      Also, what one platform calls Premium, another doesn't.

        I don't know if this is related to your registrant details problem.

        I buy most of my domains through Namecheap, except for .co.uk domains. For some strange reason, which Namecheap couldn't explain, if I try and buy through that account these domains are rejected and I'm told my details are incorrect. Yet all my details there are up to date and correct.

        I can buy similar domains for my clients via their own Namecheap accounts, so it isn't a global NC problem. I buy my co.uk domains from a different registrar - freeparking.co.uk

        So to cut the long story short - I guess I'm suggesting using a different registrar! Or even just try setting up another Namecheap account and pushing the domain to it.

    Never had that problem with Namecheap and I have a lot of domains through them. Just make sure you don't have their free privacy activated for the domain. That would cause the whois info to be private and Sedo would then say the whois info "doesn't match".

      Never thought of that I doubt I would have but there is a chance I will check.
