    Yes ,Alex L has been very very helpful after the initial delay. Hope you have a sensational long weekend Alex!
    More recently Alex has answered my many emails quickly with clarity.
    I have had a go at listing a portfolio in bulk for free.
    The flippa system tells me that all my com.au and net.au have a private whois and I need to insert a fippa generated code in the TXT record to verify ownership.
    whois at Ausregistry clearly shows a non private contact including my genuine email.
    I conclude that it is only possible to list any com.au and net.au on Flippa is if you host the names you want to list to enable insertion of a TXT record
    So I need to change the DNS for each of these bulk portfolio names to my host, and create cpanels for each name and insert the TXT record
    Hey you gurus, is that correct?
    And then after hosting each of the bulk portfolio names, wait for verification and go and change the DNS again, this time to Flippa to take advantage of their hosted for sale page.
    Sounds like a lot of fun eh?

    Rather than do the above, just contact Flippa direct - they understand the AU verification issues. They are very helpful.
