    Hi, today I bought a domain.. http://www.greece--vacation.info
    I also bought domain forwarding with it and forwarded to
    a CPA Offer. But instead of going to the CPA Offer when
    I click that link I'm taken to a kinda parked domain.

    I emailed the company about this and they emailed me back
    saying:
    I tried that and nothing new, anyone has any idea on whats
    happening?

    Tnks in advance.

    Don't panic. You shall let some time and recheck later (after 12-24 hours) as domain propagation is not possible in an instant.

    I'm not giving it much thought..after all it's just a $1.79 domain + $0.50 forwarding fee.
    I panicked a bit at first coz it's actually the first time I'm buying a domain and not using
    a free forwarding service so i instantly thought "Scam! I just paid for someone else to park
    a domain".

    The only thing that's bothering me is that in the email they state that it's working for
    them and are redirected to a CPA Offer.

    I'll check back in a day or two and hopefully if it's working I'll start spreading the link
    a bit ;)

    wait some more time for the DNS to propagate. I have always known that url forwarding comes free with every domain bought. Where did you take it from?

    Hi, surf4fun
    I'm going to use Nick Flame's "Youtube Traffic Thieves - Blackhat guide".
    I'm just going to experiment and try to find out what gets people to click
    on a link, more of a learning thing than trying to earn money.

    It'll be working for them instantly because they'll be checking via their own network which will pick-up the forwarding from their own DNS server... It just takes a little time for other DNS servers around the world to pick-up the change as DNS servers hold a local copy of the data and may only refresh from the source every few hours or a day.

    netrepreneur: Tnks, I thought they only accepted visa.

    scriptkiddy & plainjane: I found out the link is working and
    I have a worm on my pc thats forwarding the url to meanwhile.com,
    guess I'll have to send snag.in an appology email...

    I would never suggest godaddy as they are some sort of moral police. One spam complaint and if you fail to prove your innocence in 24 hours, godaddy will block your domain.
