Parked Domains?

Last Update: July 20, 2015

OK Guys,

I must be honest with you all, perhaps I have been a little naive I think regarding reading fully the t's&c's of some domain providers. I have purchased quite a lot of them in the last few months but haven't done anything with them at all. I mean nothing at all, just parked where I purchased them from. They are not currently up For Sale, (I don't think) just parked. I typed in several of my domain url's just out of interest to see what came up on my screen? And low and behold : wait for it; it was a lovely landing page/ advert for the companies that sold me the domains. All sorts of links involved. Totally taking advantage of that domain just sitting there with nothing doing. Like I said, is this me being naive to think I own that site yet they have an ad for themselves on my domain! So if you have any domains that you own that are at the moment parked only, please check them out to see what is on your url.

I would really appreciate any feedback/education on this subject please WA'ers.

Perhaps this is just the norm rather than having a blank page? I don't know......

Cheers

Darwyn

Hi Darwyn

If you are planning to use WP with your domain names, then I would advice 2 things that you can do right away -
1- there are various plugins that you can download. one such plug in is for setting up "coming soon" page.

2- write some good quality content (blog post) and set that up as a lead gen. By adding a optin form at the bottom of that post.

You can even link to WA as an affiliate and briefly mention what you are doing at WA and if anyone is interested - give them your affiliate link for WA on that page.

Good luck
Harin

Hey Harin, thanks for the reply. This is quite an old post and I have since moved my sites over to WA hosting. If you had have been here a few months ago I would have implemented your advice. Nice tactic for monetizing a parked domain. I must remember that.
Thanks again for your reply.
Cheers

Thanks for the reply Loes. I see your page has a lovely image on it. Did you have to set that up yourself?

Yes I did put it up myself, I have copied the content to WA, the site was allready in the air, but because of my lack of knowledge back then, it wasn't indexed at all. This domainname I purchased for a year, and it will run to november.
