    In a recent thread (http://www.acorndomains.co.uk/general-board/45790-parking-vs-sale-landing-page-vs.html), I was unable to sleep as per usual and I was already in dreamweaver so I knocked up a simple parking script.

    I have put about 4-5 hours code in so far and am developing a 'holding' page version of name drive, this can have ads so you take 100% cut of your ad money or plain to avoid DRS city but all run from your own hosting.

    I currently have the site test bed with

    goosedown.co.uk - Goose Down Pillows, Duvets and Bedding, - Skindustrial Developments
    pornservers.co.uk - Porn Servers - Adult Web Hosting Guide - Skindustrial Developments
    24i.co.uk - 24i - 24 Hour Information - Skindustrial Developments
    Holding Page - Default Holding Page - Skindustrial Developments

    All those pages are generated by the single file script, this would run from a single £2ish a month hosting account would run this easily.

    At the moment the script is messy and ugly as its still growing on the ugly tree, once its working how I want I'll add custom header/foot options, optional CSS styling and some other stuff.

    Would there be an interest in such a script ?

    Hi Skinner,

    I only just noticed this post. Sounds like a great idea. Are you going to release this open source?

    i thought this looked good
    domainzaar
    i know a certain member on here has tried it out and thinks it needs someone work but if his pestering pays off this might be a credible solution.

    especially when PPC is slow low

    I have added a basic header now and worked a bit on the layout, I still need to add the code to remove the contact box on domains that are not for sale. Also need to add a captcha box for the contact as it gets randomly spammed.

    I will probably release it open source.

    I posted most the code in another thread by edwin, called parking vs mini site vs ? or something like that :)

    That sounds great! :)

    I'm currently trialing a free script at HeMan.co.uk that I picked up, with a PHP Contact form I also whacked in myself.

    It's all a bit rough and ready but does the trick and pulls in content/Google ads etc and hopefully lets people know the DN is for sale - all in the space of a few minutes work. :D
