First Agenda of the Year: sahibinden.com Domain Crisis


On Wednesday, January 3, in the morning, there was an access problem to sahibinden.com, the online trading platform that contains advertisements in various categories such as real estate, real estate and vehicles!


Among the prominent claims arising from the long-lasting problem of accessing the site was that the "Sahibinden.com" domain name had expired and was therefore purchased by a foreign company. The platform's officials forgot to extend the domain name, and this was put forward as Florida-based networking company Network Solutions LLC purchased the domain name until 2025.


The short-term domain crisis that occurred at the beginning of the year was quickly resolved. On January 4, 2024, sahibinden.com announced through its Instagram account that it had completed the technical work with the company providing the domain service and was reopened for access.
