    I came across a few threads about domain parking and realized that out of the 70+ domains I have, 60 are not in use and are parked with godaddy. I decided to use my shared hosting and make one parking page with 10 Am@zon affiliate pics/links (but could have used any affiliate or cpa offer) and then did a 301 to my lander/park page from all 60 domains. So now if I buy a new domain I can just 301 it to my park page in a couple of clicks. My domains will not generate a lot of traffic, but its better to be putting those few cents in my pocket and not in godday's. Who knows it may even pay for my domain renewals. Hope this helps someone!


    Questions and feedback would be great!

    I'm just starting doing the same with my domains. Any positive results yet, OP?

    Just finished doing this 5 minutes before I started the thread, so I don't really have any numbers yet. I think if you have a decent park page that you will see some results. It's still better than godaddy getting my money and I have complete control over it.

    If those domains are EMD and .com they will bring you a few typeins a month, which could convert rather well.

    You should keep track of which domains are performing best, it will be useful in the long term.

    Most of my domains are emd and .com. I will be checking stats for traffic and conversions and that's another reason I wanted to do this, because I will know exactly what the numbers are versus parking somewhere else and either not know or wonder all the time if I getting cheated by who ever it's parked with. Plus I've noticed on one parked page for ringtones it had ads for wedding cakes, I don't know about you but I can make a better generic lander that most of the crap I've seen out there.

    I started this yesterday and had to stop so I only got a few domains parked on my own page yesterday, but I found out one of the domains got 19 views in less than 24 hrs. I would have never have never have known if I would have left it parked with godaddy. Hope to have some conversion numbers for all domains soon.
