Sedo and Parked.com Tops for Domain Name Parking

February 23, 2010Domain Parking, Domaining, Domainnamewire, Parked.com, sedoComments Off on Sedo and Parked.com Tops for Domain Name Parking

Familiar faces top results from survey.

Sedo and Parked.com were selected as the best domain name parking companies in the 5th Annual Domain Name Wire Survey.

Sedo took top honors with 23% of the vote, followed by Parked.com at 18%. Here are the top five vote-getters:

1. Sedo 23%
2. Parked.com 18%
3. NameDrive 13%
4. SmartName 6%
5. DomainSponsor and Google Adsense for Domains 6%

SmartName is new to the list this year. The company has combined its three parking platforms into one, giving customers previously on GoldKey and ActiveAudience access to SmartName. The company has also launched new parking products including content sites and shops.

It’s also interesting to look at the percentage of customers that have used a service that rate it ‘best’. By this measure, SmartName takes home top honors, followed by Parked, NameDrive, and Sedo.

Amongst domainers with 1,000 or more domain names, Parked.com takes first place followed by Sedo.

Domain Name News Bytes for September 15

September 15, 2009Domaining, Domainnamewire, Parked.com, sedopro, Uncategorized, whypark, xsite pro, yahooComments Off on Domain Name News Bytes for September 15

News bytes to start your Tuesday.

Here are a few domain name news items for the week:

Domain Name Wire Radio is coming. More later.

Parked/Why Park Forum. Parked.com and WhyPark have created a user forum at forum.parked.com. Parked’s Donny Simonton has always been active on message boards, so you can rest assured you’ll get direct access through this forum. Hint: register for the forum to get more content.

Got travel traffic?. If you have a good portfolio of travel domains getting xx,xxx visitors per month, shoot me a note. I have someone who wants to talk to you.

Yahoo’s updated traffic quality algorithm has gone into effect. Some domain parkers are complaining, but many of them probably only make a dollar a day, anyway. Remember: quality of traffic matters!

XsitePro thoughts. I’ve long raved about Xsite Pro. The only problem is I still can’t find anyone that creates good custom templates for it. They’re always so amateur.

SedoPro Partner Forum. Just a few weeks until Sedo rolls out the red carpet for VIP parking clients. Most enjoyable few days you’ll ever spend with fellow domainers.
