Hi there, ive recently signed up to ebays partner program. The problem im having is they have now asked me to confirm my domain. Please read below a copy of what they have asked for. My question then would be is there any way i can do what there asking through the synthasite site builder software? Thanks in advance.
We require you to confirm ownership of the domains that you will drive traffic from within 72 hours.

The process is easy:

Create a plain text file from a text editor and in the contents put only your unique identifier (provided below).
Save the file as 'epndomain.txt'.
Upload the file to the base directory of each of your domains that you would like to register.
Example: If your website is www.ebay.com, your file would be located in http://www.ebay.com/epndomain.txt.
Visit the Domain Confirmation Page when your domains are ready to be validated and click on the 'Confirm Domains' button.

Hi Wendy,

eBay does offer this alternative on their support pages:

I can't validate one of my domains. What do I do?

On the Domain Management page, click the checkbox that says "I cannot validate one or more of my domains" and explain why you cannot validate those domains. When you click the Update button, the explanation you type will be attached to your account information.

During the application process, it is very important for Customer Support to know why you cannot validate one or more of your domains. If you have already been accepted into the network, this information is still important because it will help our Customer Support, Account Management, and Network Quality teams serve you better.


Once you've submitted your site's information using the above steps, you'll need to wait for eBay to get back to you.

I hope that the above information helps.
