Ez ... edo agian ez. Niretzat ez, dena den.
What is Domain Parking? It's when you have a great idea for a domain name, you check to see if it's purchased. It's not… so you buy it. Instead of utilizing the domain for a website, you ‘park' it. Domain parking is a means of additional income and some of the largest owners of domain names make millions at it. There are two ways to make money with domain parking:
- Jendeak batzuetan a idazten du URL hura bilatu beharrean. Domeinuaren izena baduzu, aplikagarriak diren iragarkiak jar ditzakezu helmuga orrian. Jendeak iragarkian klik egiten badu, iragarleak ordainduko du.
- Jendeak domeinu izena nahi du eta, beraz, eskaintza bat egiten dizute.
Gaur artikulu bat irakurtzen ari nintzela, horren berri eman behar nuen negozio honen proba gogorarazi dit. Duela urtebete baino gehiago, Domain 2.0 aldizkariko Domain Parking baliabideak eskaintzen zituzten Business XNUMX aldizkariko zenbait gune irakurri nuen. Garai hartan, Sedo aurrez kargurik ez zuten domeinuko aparkalekuen konpainietako bat zen. Blogeko mezu bat idatzi nuen, tiro bat emango nuela esanez.
Zorte onena izan nuen domeinu izena izan zen navyvets.com. After a year of having the domain parked, I had 93 hits that made $1.22 with no offers for the selling price of $2,500. Since I pay $14.95 per year for each renewal of the domain, that's a nice loss.
Hori izan zen nire estekarik onena.
Of course there are ways of making this actually work. If I had thousands of domain names parked with a registrar that offered me lower rates, I managed the advertising myself… possibly putting content on the sites with some behavioral advertising – I could turn a profit. If I made a dollar a year on each name, I could buy 100,000 names and make a tidy income. But I don't have the time to do that. As well, the best names have already been bought up so it would take a lot of time to simply wait on expired domains or a lot of money to try to purchase others that may turn a buck or two.
So, my domain parking career is almost over. My last shot will be to put my best domain up at Sedo for $39 to have it on the front page to see if I can find a buyer. I'll point the rest of my domains to this blog, which generates a much better click-through rate on its advertising than Sedo ($0.10 EPC). I'll let you know how it goes!
