Verifying ownership of a domain

Before a domain can list for sale your ownership must be verified. There are a number of ways that this can be achieved.

Summary:

  • Validating Using DNS Text Record - adding a text code provided by Flippa during the listing process as a DNS TXT record via your DNS management console. 

 

Validating Using DNS Text Record

This involves adding a text code provided by Flippa during the listing process as a DNS TXT record via your DNS management console.

If you are unsure what this then please do some further research before selling a domain we have links below to explain how to edit a TXT record and its purpose. 

 

For more information about setting TXT records:
Adding a DNS record at Go Daddy
Adding a DNS record at name.com
or contact your registrar.

Checking your TXT records

Using the MX Toolbox you can check the TXT records that have been added to a domain. Once loaded remove google.com and add in your own domain to confirm. This will allow you to validate before opening a ticket with Flippa Support.

It may take a few minutes for the change to be visible to us so please wait up to 30 minutes after the TXT record has been uploaded before contacting support.

 

If the txt record does not work after the 30 minutes then please try removing this and re-adding it. As strange as it sounds sometimes this works as a kind of 'reset'. If you still experience problems then please contact our support team.
