Check Your Parked Domain Names After Buying


It is the responsibility of domain owners to ensure their pay per click links are set accurately and the "for sale" link (if applicable) is working as anticipated. It is a good idea to check on this after a domain name inquiry.

Last week, I sold a domain name to another investor. When I owned the domain name, I had it parked, and I forward inquiries for almost all of my  parked domain names to an inquiry page. For some reason, when the buyer added the domain name to his parking account after I deleted it, the link to remained. I have reported this issue to the parking company.

There are also people who think that a better looking landing page creates a better user experience for visitors, and they will stick around longer as a result.

My company doesn't do enough parking to really test these theories enough for me to take a guess. However, I've recently seen a couple of nice looking landing pages and wanted to share them with you.

The first one is for, which appears to be a Dotzup lander based on the DNS. The pictures match the domain name and theme perfectly, and the center links make the lander look like a developed website. I would imagine the links are hand selected to give visitors the options they would expect on a camping supply website. I don't know the owner, but I believe he has a number of good domain names.

The second landing page I like is a weight loss theme from Domain Advertising. Although they can't link to → Read More
