Domain Cash Parking

cash parking
In all my online money making years, I’ve never looked in to one popular way some webpreneurs make money: Domain Cash Parking.
What is it? Basically, you buy a domain name and choose a place to ‘park’ it where you can get paid through some kind of revenue sharing system.

This is good if you own several domain names that are not being used and/or ‘under construction’. Instead of leaving these domains on their own, you can park them with a domain parking service and you can earn money by doing so.

There are several services that offer domain cash parking. And, depending on the number of domains you have, you might want to look at different services. Some cash parking services are free and some charge a fee.

If you have less than 50 domains that you wish to park, one popular service is Sedo. It has a free and a paid (Pro) version. I’ve heard some good reports about Sedo, but haven’t really had a first hand experience.

Another popular service is called Parked. A couple of other options: plus1.net and iMonetize.

All these also handle more than 50 domains. However, these cash parking services prefer to deal with bulk domain name parking (50+): Active Audience and Traffic Z.

How much money can people make with domain cash parking? It depends. Some people have reported earnings of a few cents to earning $50+ a week per domain name.

If you have experience in domain cash parking, please let us know what you think about it and recommend your favourite service.

  1. parked at godaddy also and am doing well. I do not like how they try selling and adding fees for everything.
    check out http://www.rgvflood.com
    Thanks.

  2. Hi

    I have some parked at Sedo, and find that they are def. worth checking out (for parking small numbers of sites.)
    check out http://www.museumdiscovery.com
    Thanks.

  3. This article does not make much sense to me…why would someone pay to have a domain just sit? Does anyone have more information? Thanks!

  4. Keep up! We want more!!!

  5. I use domain cash parking for quick, temporary solutions to create income, BUT you could always get your own “custom domain parking site.” You avoid sharing profits and it doesn’t come with a monthly fee and they’re much cheaper than a website.
    Check out http://www.vividmint.com and ask for a “domain parking site”

  6. hi,
    can some one tell me how can i do it ????
    i mean cash parking.
    what do you think is it usefull enough ????????

  7. I just started trying cashparking with godaddy and I agree they try to push more fees on you. check me out at http://yikes.cc

  8. I still dont get what happens to the page rank for your domain if you cashpark it, what about when you want to use it for something else. http://www.dazedandconfused.co

  9. me to i just started with cashparking with godaddy and I agree they try to push more fees on you. check me out at http://www.allobid.com.

  10. I never looked into cash parking before. It seems to offer some good options for making money.

  11. i think godaddy is not a very good option for cash parking, while sedo is relatively good one.
    cheers

    Domain parking can be very profitable, especially if you have a large numbers of sites. Check us out at http://www.maniapix.com/

  13. Google has his own domain parking program. You are able to keep all the payments for yourself!

    Without daddy or sedo

  14. I first tried NameDrive and recently got suspended from there. still waiting on a reason why, but no response as yet.

    I have now signed up with http://www.123-parking.co.uk

    Will see how things go… im a few Pence up so far

  15. I have been hit and miss at the whole parking game. Seems that hot categories work like shopping online and unique products but tech and gaming doesn’t. Folks not into the nuts and bolts of the net click on ads more. If all parked owners clicked on any parked site that they came across we would all benefit.

  16. i do agree so far that godaddy isn’t the best option, making more money off of you seems to replace trying to help you make more money for yourself.

  17. Google domains are purely scam free! Internet Money Making Scams: Godaddy, Sedo etc6

    Why you need any middle hand monetary robbers??

  18. Well, I have had 30 domains parked at both Sedo and Whypark for about 3 yrs and made a grand total of 1.30 combined. Not very pleased

  19. I currently own more than a hundred domains that are cash parked with godaddy. This is all very new to me. I had a few bucks burning a whole in my pocket, so I started buying them up. I pay $7.67 a domain (tax included). This is a price I pay with a promo code. I hear about people making some good cash with parked domains. A friend of mine turned me on to this. His Cash parked domains earn him enough every mo. to pay his rent and bills. He has roughly 300 domains. After you own 250 domains with godaddy they put you on what they call “executive status”. At this point you can buy domains from them for roughly 3-4 $$ a piece.
    I personally have only made $1.37 total earnings in the past month that I have owned them. And I have some pretty good domains. All of which are .com extensions. I am currently building a site to promote these cash parked domains. ( there is a difference between a “parked” domain, and a “cash parked” domain. If anyone has any tips in regard to earning more revenue with my domains, I would love to hear your input. here is a link to a blog I started working on yesterday. This is not however the site that I’m working on, as that will take a bit more time. This is more or less a quick resolve of sorts. And even this blog is nowhere near done. Feel free to check it out. http://domainmanager007.blogspot.com. As I’ve said it”s a work in progress…

  20. best earning way

  21. Info Guy says:

    It seems the biggest problem with cash parking is how will any anonymous person find your website if they do not appear in a search results. I have added my godaddy cash parking sites to the google bot and bingbot so that they can crawl the sites. I haven’t seen them appear yet in the search results. I figured godaddy submits the keywords to the different search engines but now that seems in doubt. What can be done to drive people to the parked sites?

  22. Info Guy says:

    oops, I meant how will they find the cash parking page.

  23. info guy says:

    iam parked right now at sedo and it seems great, check out the website http://www.investopediaonline.com

  24. It’s a relatively simple idea, but relies upon type-in traffic or links from pre-existing websites.

  25. It’s really not that hard, although GOdaddy says you get an 80% return. I’m not doing to bad per click off of pages like geekclassic.com

  26. It has been my experience that the best way to make money with your domains is to take some time to build your own websites, and then turn them into money makers with advertising or affiliate links. I haven’t found a good domain parking service that is worth using because your parked domain doesn’t show up in search results and they have strict terms about sending traffic to your domains. I started with very little knowledge a few years ago with MS Frontpage, and then found a much better website building software that I absolutely love that has enabled me to easily churn out dozens of quality websites that provide value to the user while helping produce a nice income for me and my family.

  28. You can make a few bucks if you have a domain waiting to be put into service. The best one so far is listed here…http://www.worldslamest.com

  29. What a great way to make some cash. What do you all think of this here http://www.stereoclassics.us

  30. OK very interesting. I use sedo park and 123-park.co.uk.

    Both are useful, however 123-park take ages to pay out!

  31. Domaineering Domain Parking says:

    As identified by Prof. William Lorenz, “domaineering” is the web-based marketing business of acquiring and monetizing Internet domain names purposely focusing on their use specifically as an advertising medium rather than primarily speculating on domains as intellectual property investments for resale as in “domaining” where generating advertising revenue is considered more of a bonus while awaiting a sale. In essence, the domain names function as virtual Internet billboards with generic domain names being highly valued for their revenue generating potential derived from attracting Internet traffic hits. Revenue is earned as potential customers view pay per click ( PPC ) ads or the Internet traffic attracted may be redirected to another website. Hence, the domain name itself is the revenue generating asset conveying information beyond just functioning as a typical web address. As the value here is intrinsically in the domain name as an information carrying vehicle and not in a website’s products or services, these domains are developed for advertising, ( i.e, “parked” ), and not into “conventional” websites. As with traditional advertising, domaineering is part art and part science. Often to be the most effective as an advertising tool, the domain names and their corresponding landing pages must be engineered or optimized to produce maximum revenue which may require considerable skill and keen knowledge of search engine optimization ( SEO ) practices, marketing psychology and an understanding of the target market audience, including demographics and buying habits. Domaineering generally utilizes a firm offering domain parking services to provide the sponsored “ad feed” of a word or phrase searched for thus creating a mini-directory populated largely by advertisers paying to promote their products and services under a relevant generic keyword domain. Occasionally content is added to develop a functional mini-website. Ethical domaineers contend that their product, i.e., “domain advertising”, is a bona fide offering of goods or services in and of itself which provides rights to and legitimate interests in the generic domains they use. This serves as a rebuttal or defense in addressing occasional spurious accusations of cybersquatting on trademarks. Domaineers and some of those who advertise online using generic keywords believe domaineering provides a useful, legal and legitimate Internet marketing service while opponents of domaineering decry the practice as increasing the ubiquitous commercialization of the world wide web. Domaineering aka “domain advertising” is practiced by both large organizations which may have registered hundreds or even thousands of domains to individual entrepreneurial minded domaineers who may only own one or a few. The earliest known verifiable identification and defining of domaineering as a distinct Internet advertising practice is widely attributed to Canadian Professor William Lorenz.

  32. Great post. More ideas coming soon?

  33. I think it’s a great way to make money
    see http://www.footstreaming.fr for ex.

    but did anyone try to do cash parking by themself?

  34. I now own about 135 domains. I use google adsense to create revenue for both my domains with websites and my parked domains. The parked domains at google are great revenue makers these alone generate 350-500.00 a month income. My domains with websites use the google adsense for content and search options. These too generate a nice monthly income between 200-350 per month. Using google makes the best sense, consider these facts: 1. If you are an want to place an ad on the web, who would you place it with? 2. What company offers ad placement and operates the worlds largest and most successful search engine? Remember google makes money from from parked domain also so it is to googles best interest that your parked domain which has their ads on it, is found during google searches. I know it is said that parked domains DO NOT SHOW UP IN SEARCH RESULTS…but they do. I can assure you they do.

    Sedo I’ve used their services, but be careful. Do a search of sedo on the net, you’ll find that many people report being ripped off and even having their domain stolen from them while at sedo.

    Its real easy use google, they are an AMERICAN company, located in California and they pay on time every month. On the 15 th of every month I get a large electronic deposit of my earnings no hassles no confusion just cash!!!
    good luck to all!

  35. Visit http://www.mygadget.in/ and get awared of new mobiles,laptops,tabs.etc.etc

  36. I have owned many domains over the years and tried many things. I am very busy with my career so Cash Parking with godaddy.com is easy to me. I hear some people don’t like it. But I do. Because it is easy. I made about $15 this week from cash parking on one domain http://www.rebp.org Some of the others made $0
    Some times it is luck with the promotions. You have to do a little work to drive traffic.

  37. http://www.buystructuredsettlements.us
    This is a new one that is performing well.

  38. I put them up for sale and that drives some traffic.

  39. I think it’s a great way to make money
    see http://www1.thuocladientu.com

    Thanks.

  40. I know that it is much better building a real website and putting ads on it yourself. It could something as simple as one article that will draw traffic to it. Otherwise, one website can make anything between 0 – 10 dollars a month being cash parked. The ones that make more money are the ones with names closer or similar to popular websites. Otherwise you can advertise your real website at http://www.plutofind.com and increase your online presence.

  41. im parked with godaddy and i use quick content which enables me to get paid for parking and add some content too please check me out at http://www.imgoodatgames.com or email me and we can swap ideas about how to make money =]

  42. This is going to be my 1st time trying it. I own about 40 domains with my most popular one being http://www.texastrainers.com. I will let everyone know how it goes after a couple of months.

  43. This is so interesting, I dont understand What is the benefit of parked domain for this system? How do this work ? Can someone tell me?

  44. Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
    to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but
    have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  45. Hey! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate!
    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this page
    to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for
    sharing!

  46. Have you ever considered I’d like to see how much is my car worth?

    There are loads of options, so it can be overwhelimg unless you are shown who you can trust.

Speak Your Mind
