A Few Good Domain Parking Solutions
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. GoDaddy's CashParking 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; RevenueDirect and 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.
