I just received the press release below announcing that WhyPark is now officially known as Domain Apps. If you are a WhyPark customer, there is some important information that you need to know in order to make the transition seamless. The full press release is below with all of this important information.
What do you think about the name change?
Press release sent to WhyPark customers:
Thank you for being a valued WhyPark customer. We continue to look for new ways to earn revenue for our customers while making domain monetization as simple as possible. Starting today, you will manage your account and domains through Domain Apps (www.domainapps.com) rather than WhyPark.
How This Affects You
The WhyPark dashboard has been retired and forwards to Domain Apps (www.domainapps.com). Login with the same email and password that you previously used on WhyPark.
The first time you login to Domain Apps, you will complete a very quick, five-step migration. When finished, all of your domains will be available to manage, view reports, etc. through Domain Apps.
Domain Apps Advantages
More monetization options; Choose to develop your content sites as you previously have through WhyPark, or monetize through traditional domain parking from one interface. You can switch back and forth at any time with a single click.
More payment options; receive payments via PayPal, check, direct deposit (US only) or International Wire Transfer.
New reports; view your estimated revenue for the current day, prior to any final stats being received by our advertising partners. Revenue from your parked domains and content sites are consolidated into a single report.
Future growth; we’ve laid the groundwork to enable even more monetization options to be added in the future.
New, but familiar; The Domain Apps brand more accurately reflects a wider range of monetization options than WhyPark. We feel we’ve outgrown the original brand with the launch of our apps in 2010 and our future plans. However, the Domain Apps interface and functionality will be very familiar to WhyPark customers.
What You Need to Do
The first time you login to Domain Apps, you will complete the migration process. That’s it! Your domains will remain unaffected and you will be able to quickly start managing your domains again. You will receive an email when the migration process has been completed. This can range from under 1 minute to several minutes, depending on the number of domains you have with us.
In order to take advantage of the ability to switch between parking and content sites, be sure to change your nameservers to use ns1.domainapps.com and ns2.domainapps.com. Please note that our existing nameservers will stay online. Your domains will continue to resolve without issue, but will not be able to be switched between content and parking. Any changes you make will continue to be live.
We’re Here to Help
Even though we feel these new additions will be a benefit to our customers, we also understand that change can be difficult. We’re here to help and answer any questions you may have. Please contact us through live chat in your account or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Best wishes for a successful 2012!
