WhyPark Officially Launches Domain Apps

July 6, 2010craig rowe, Domain Parking, Domaining, Domainnamewire, whyparkComments Off on WhyPark Officially Launches Domain Apps

Domain parking alternative releases major upgrade today.

I’ve been excited about WhyPark‘s Domain Apps since WhyPark founder Craig Rowe first started talking with me about them at Domainer Mardi Gras. He then gave me a sneak peak at TRAFFIC in Vancouver. Today they are available to install on your WhyPark domains.

Domain Apps let you instantly ad relevant content modules/pages to your domain names, and some of them help you earn money, too. Want to pull in a comparison shopping feed? Just click a few buttons. Need a hotel directory? Ditto.

Craig is obviously is familiar with his product, but it literally only took him about 30 seconds to add each module.

Among the more interesting Domain Apps:

-Web directory – create categories of businesses relevant to your domain, then charge a monthly fee for listings

-Local listings – show local businesses based on a keyword, and display them on a map

-Comparison shopping – add a comparison shopping engine for products relevant to your domain name

Information about WhyPark’s Domain Apps is available here.

Mardi Gras Special Ends Today, WhyPark Gives Auction Details

November 13, 2009craig rowe, Domain Services, domainer mardi gras, Domaining, Domainnamewire, rick latona, whyparkComments Off on Mardi Gras Special Ends Today, WhyPark Gives Auction Details

Here are a couple news notes from Domainer Mardi Gras and WhyPark.

Domainer Mardi Gras special ends today: Domainer Mardi Gras is giving away a 500 GB external hard drive to anyone who signs up to attend by midnight tonight. Registration rates are as low as $595 if you also stay at the conference hotel. This is the lowest fee you’ll ever see for attending an industry-wide domain conference. It’s a lot of fun, too. I recommend taking advantage of this offer if you’re sitting on the fence about attending Domainer Mardi Gras 2010.

WhyPark announces auction details: WhyPark is teaming up with Rick Latona Auctions to test out the latter’s Latonas.com auction platform for WhyPark’s upcoming charity domain name auction. Not only is the auction for a good cause, but I’m excited to see what Latona has developed. His company has used Proxibid.com for its previous auctions, but the system has serious limitations.

To learn more about the auction, listen to the DNW Radio interview with WhyPark founder Craig Rowe.

DNW Radio: Craig Rowe of WhyPark

November 11, 2009craig rowe, DNW Radio, Domaining, Domainnamewire, whyparkComments Off on DNW Radio: Craig Rowe of WhyPark

Our first ever episode of DNW Radio.

DNW RadioAbout a month ago I announced I was working on DNW Radio, a radio show that will feature domain industry leaders. Better late than never, here’s the first episode.

You may recall that I’m not a huge fan of using video when you can get something across in text. The same thing goes for audio, but that’s why the solution I’m using for DNW Radio is perfect: not only can you stream the audio, you can also read a transcript. If you want to download the podcast and play it in the car, you can. If you want to stream it in the background while you’re bidding in auctions, go for it. And if you’d rather just read the transcript, that’s an option, too.

WhyPark founder Craig Rowe was kind enough to be our guinea pig on DNW Radio. In this episode, he talks about how WhyPark got started, the acquisition by Parked.com, and new features the company is working on. GeoDomain owners will be especially interested in what he has to say.

Please keep in mind that DNW Radio is a work in progress. I’m working on getting the right mix on audio, length, etc. If you’d like to add this show to your web site, feel free to click the link in the widget below. You are free to redistribute the audio. However, the transcript is copyrighted.

Stay tuned.
