Other Domain name parking options:

  1. AFD – Adsense for domain (AFD) started in Dec 2008.  You can display google ads on your domains if you have a valid adsense account. Their templates have much less features compared to others. You cannot add any custom content on the parked pages. Google inserts a “No Index / No Follow” meta tag on your pages.  Earnings are much less and you cannot mark your domains for sale.
  2. DDC – It has competitive earnings per click and some excellent landing pages. It has Yahoo advertising feed. Approval may be difficult.
  3. DomainParking.co.uk - High payouts and affiliation to Yahoo. You can edit each aspect of your parking page, from keywords, related links, imagery, directory headings, sub category fields, navigation tabs, banners and much more. Also provides in depth statistics. Slow customer service and slow payouts. Be careful.
  4. Domain Sponsor – Performs well for some categories like finance related domain names. Their advertising feed is via Google. Approval is required and can be difficult.
  5. Fabulous – Mainly for high end domaineers, who have 750+ domains and you must  generate US $750+ per month. Otherwise its really fabulous company with high earnings per click and excellent selection of templates and highly optimized 1 click landing pages. You cannot add custom content to your pages, neither can you select the title and meta tags. Customer service is excellent.
  6. Incomate – Good for gambling domain names. You can customize your designs, Landers or layouts. Usually you can make good money from incomate with your gambling domains.
  7. Sedo ProYou need an endorsement code from an existing SedoPro member to get accepted , or you must have at least 200 domains or $200+ per month in PPC revenue. You may receive up to 30% bonus , advertising feed is via Google.
  8. Skenzo - Skenzo is only open to large domain portfolio holders. I have never got a response from their customer service. So cannot write much about this.
  9. Revenue Driver– Started in June 2009 and based in Rome. Excellent templates, they share 80% revenue, Ad feed is via Yahoo. They are currently accepting traffic from some European countries and will soon start USA traffic.
