    just noticed at domainstate

    Hello,

    Sedo is currently experiencing difficulties. The Sedo homepage and parking are both affected.

    Our tech team is currently working to resolve the situation. As soon as there's an update I will post again.

    Hello Everyone,

    As a response to a flooding attack starting at about 7pm on May 1, Sedo has moved all domain parking traffic to its DDoS protection provider Prolexic. The attack resulted in a downtime of approx 2 hours in the evening of May 1.

    All customers were fully compensated for the loss in parking earnings.

    The flooding worsened in the morning of May 2, and Sedo is working together with Prolexic to mitigate the attack. Because of the filtering of the attack, an error page from Prolexic might be displayed in rare occasions after an IP has been flagged as potentially malicious.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and are working with all resources on resolving the situation.

    Has any compensation for the later attack been given yet?

    Thanks

    Hello everyone,

    All accounts affected by downtime on Tuesday have been compensated. By Wednesday morning this issue had been brought under control - on 02 -05 all traffic was being filtered ensuring that all legimate views were registered. Please contact info@sedo.co.uk or your account manager if you notice any major anomalies in traffic stats over this period.

    Have a nice weekend!
