Domain Parking Services - Create A Money Making Tool From Parked DomainsDomain Parking Services - Create A Money Making Tool From Parked Domains

Domain parking services are a growing industry as people discover new ways to make money on the internet. The services grew out of the booming affiliate marketing movement. Affiliate marketing is all about getting people to click through links that create a commission for the site owner. Domain parking services are utilizing a formerly unrecognized space to create affiliate marketing sites: parked domains.

What is a Parked Domain?

In essence, a parked domain is a website that hasn't been built yet. Companies like to buy the domain names they'll need just as soon as they realize they need them because domain name competition is pretty fierce. A company might buy three or four domain names years before they intend to actually create content for those websites. The result is that several companies have bought domain names that are sitting dormant on the internet.

Domain parking services offer to remove the "coming soon" sign from a parked domain and make it earn its keep a little bit. A parked domain is still a billboard on the world wide web, and it should be useful to its owner in some way. Domain parking services will create targeted content that can earn commissions for the site owner as the domain sits and waits to become a real website.

Is Resale Lucrative?

Some affiliate marketers have taken the idea a step further and begun to purchase domains that may be more popular. The resale value of a good domain name can soar into the millions very easily. If a savvy marketer should take advantage of expired domain names that seem lucrative, like or, they can resell them. Someone who is interested in creating a burger site or a movie site may be willing to pay top dollar for the privilege of owning that domain name.

It makes sense to buy as many domain names as possible so that you will have more opportunities to sell them at a higher price. Domain parking services provide the opportunity to put something potentially lucrative on the domains that are just sitting around waiting to be resold.

Why Hire a Service?

The best reason to hire domain parking services, especially if you have several parked domains, is that they will create marketing content for your site based on their understanding of search engines and web traffic. They can also create a link on your parked domain page for people who may be interested in buying the domain to contact you directly.

Domain parking services are run by internet marketing specialists, which means that you're hiring someone who understands how to get people to visit your parked domain - and how to get them to click on a link once they're at the site. There's no reason to leave a parked domain sitting out on the internet uselessly when you could hire someone to create dynamic content that may help pay for the site's existence. Think of it as a billboard that can make you money just because you own the name.
