Bodis Acquires TrafficZ

0

During the last week of December, TrafficZ announced that the parking service was shutting down at  the end of 2014. I was a bit surprised that they chose to shut down rather than be acquired, especially after a commenter reported that there were still quite a few domain names using TrafficZ DNS.

According to an email I received this morning, Bodis has acquired TrafficZ. The email was sent to me because I have a  TrafficZ account (rather than as a news article to report), and there aren't any details about the terms of the acquisition.

Here is what the email said: (more…) → Read More


TrafficZ Shutting Down

2014 has been a year of changes for Thought Convergence. In September of this  year,  Aftermarket.com was acquired by Igloo.com and Agreed Escrow was acquired by Escrow.com. Both companies that were acquired were owned and operated by Thought Convergence.

In an  email update to clients this morning, Thought Convergence announced that its TrafficZ parking service will be shutting down for good on December 31. According to the email that was signed by Ammar Kubba and Kevin Vo: (more…) → Read More


TrafficZ Clarifies Yahoo “Revenue Cap” Notice

4

In light of yesterday's article regarding the monetization change at Yahoo impacting .CO, .TV, .US, .INFO, and .BIZ domain names (referred to as a "revenue cap"), I want to share an update on that I received from TrafficZ this evening.

Craig Rowe of WhyPark posted something similar in the comment section of yesterday's article relating to how WhyPark and Parked are dealing with this situation.

The full update is posted below:

"We've received a lot of feedback and questions on the notice that we sent out yesterday. As such, we'd like to offer some additional clarification with respect to the recent Yahoo! revenue cap implementation. Specifically, Yahoo! is just one of many advertising partners that TrafficZ works with to monetize your domains and traffic. And although Yahoo! may have imposed a cap on certain TLDs, TrafficZ will continue to monetize all high quality domains and traffic through our multiple advertising partners, regardless of TLD, revenue and/or volume.

Furthermore, TrafficZ clients with exceptional .INFO, → Read More


VisitPuertoRico.com: Great Trafficz Lander

I was watching the World Baseball Classic yesterday and saw the Dominican Republic vs. Panama game in Puerto Rico.   Behind home plate, there was a url being advertised: GoPuertoRico.com.   Personally, I am not a huge fan of most call to action domain names, but I really don't like this one, because the keyword phrase "Go Puerto Rico" doesn't exactly make sense.

I decided to take a look at some similar sites, including PuertoRico.com and VisitPuertoRico.com. Both sites look professionally done, and I was intrigued by the "inquire about this domain name" link found on the second site.   The link took me to Most Wanted Domains, so I knew it was one of Mike's great domain names. If you don't know already, Mike has one of the nicest privately owned domain portfolios assembled.

After a bit more searching around the site, I saw that it is a custom-built Trafficz site.   I really like what they did for Mike, and it goes to show that if you have a great domain name that gets traffic, you might want to ask your parking provider to → Read More
