Sedo Stats Down after DDoS Attack

Domain owners using Sedo for parking have probably seen a dip in their numbers.  Sedo sent an email today referring to a “malicious D-DDOS attack” (distributed denial of service attack) last week.  They have had some monetization problems since making changes to the site to prevent such attacks.  In their words:

Last Friday, we informed you of a malicious D-DOS attack resulting in a variety of technical consequences. Most of these issues were resolved within a few hours. However, based on your good feedback and internal analysis, it has become obvious that we have not been monetizing optimally since that day, therefore showing lower revenues in your account than were shown before March 9. This is mainly caused by the feed used for the related links.

Please be assured that we will be compensating you for the parking decrease, should you be affected by it. Details will follow as soon as possible.

 (I don’t seem to have received the first email that they refer to.)  Keep an eye on your Sedo earnings.  They are one of the services that has still paid reasonably well in this difficult climate – so we don’t recommend moving away from them at this time.

  1. The DDOS attack cost a lot of clients money, but it's inevitable for online service providers like SEDO to get malicious attacks every now and then. It only matters that the company has committed to improving their system.
