Well, let’s say that you’ve got a great idea for a website, but you’re in the middle of another project and you won’t be able to get to it for a while. In the meantime, you don’t want anyone else to snap up that great domain name. With domain parking, you can simply buy and park it until you have time to develop the website.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when parking domains:
In most cases, it will work best if you choose a .com extension. They are still the most popular, and will be for a long time to come. Finding a domain name that is a highly searched term will help you attract free-targeted traffic. That is always a good selling point for a domain so make sure to take some time and do your research when choosing a domain name.
It’s a fairly common practice to buy misspellings of domain names. By doing so, you can assure yourself that anyone who misspells the word will still end up on the right site, eventually. This can help decrease the amount of wasted traffic.
It’s not hard to find a company to park your domains with. Usually the one you purchase the domain from will offer this service. It will take a little time and some research to find the best company for you, there are a lot of them around. Just check out each one that you’re considering doing business with before you sign up. Make sure you are completely comfortable with all the terms and conditions they offer.
Most domain parking services place ads on your parked domain and will share the profits with you. Look for a company that offers you at least 80% of the revenue earned by your parked domain.
