Thanks for this information.
What I am trying to do is follow up on an email from Ebay requesting me to confirm ownership of my URL. I am trying to link to them on my hubpage. I have gone through the initial procedure and they have given me a unique identifier. I also have the Ebay links on the hubpage. I have the Ebay capsule on the hub.
I'll copy part of their email so that you can see what I am told to do by Ebay. Note the first thing they say!
'The process is easy:
1. Create a plain text file from a text editor and in the contents put only your unique identifier (provided below).
2. Save the file as 'epndomain.txt'.
3. 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.
4. Visit the Domain Confirmation Page when your domains are ready to be validated and click on the 'Confirm Domains' button.
Our system will look for the file and your unique identifier and confirm appropriately. Don't worry if you have additional domains that you'd like to add, as you will be able to add them in the future if you are accepted into the network.'
Have you any further ideas please?
