I've been on a domain buying rampage the past few weeks and have been
investigating a few domain parking solutions. A few are pretty standard in that
they simply offer paid advertising links on the domain, usually with a direct
line to the domain owner if it's being sold. Good, but not great.
Many of the domain in my domain
portfolio are being listed currently at Sedo,
perhaps the most popular solution for the domain management trinity (buying,
selling, parking) for professional domainers (there is no cost for Sedo parking)
but there are many others worthy of note.
service offers a basic plan for $3.99 a month and a premium plan for $9.99 a
month with a 60% and 80% ad revenue split respectively;
Parked.com also offer exceptional domain parking
services. While my personal preference is to develop custom content on domains
and feature some lead generation or straight affiliation programs, those who are
strapped for time should look into managed domain parking services if splitting
the revenue is not a real concern.
The one domain parking service that caught my
attention recently however was WhyPark.com
- a service which essentially adds actual dynamic content to parked domains. The
rationale is that instead of advertising being displayed on the site (which
visitors are quickly becoming used to and avoiding), WhyPark lets domain owners
optimize their domains with keyword rich content. Content is updated daily
and an automated XML sitemap is created for submission to search engines. The
price for this customization is a one-time fee of $99.95 and you are only
allowed 100 domains but for those looking for alternative parking solutions,
this may be the best of the bunch.
What domain parking solutions do you use?
