    Could I please have some feedback on the following

    1) thoughts on the best parking service - not necessarily in monetisation opportuinity but in ease of set up, good look of pages etc

    2) am specifically looking for a service that allows the pages to say this name is for sale but in a good look and feel

    3) are there any parking services any of you know of where the owner of the domains can access a panel to change meta data

    I know there are lots of different parking services but I have never really looked into them all in much depth - ideally I am looking for a UK one

    Any feedback would be appreciated

    Thanks :)

    InternetTraffic.com - who also give you access for free to their sales platform (DomainNameSales.com), which is a great sales platform.

    Ok - when I checked it went to one straight off although I know this doesnt happen with all domains. I have had loads of domain queries using Bodis so some of the time it must go to a proper lander.

    Are you in New Zealand? Maybe that is affecting what they are delivering to you.

    I've seen this with other parking companies, an attempt to derive income or better by sending the visitor directly to a paid link. I don't like it myself because you loose the domain sale lead/potential and you can't control where they end up. DomainSponsor was sending some of my domain traffic to adult chat sites. Totally unexpected from the user at the other end I bet. InternetTraffic.com does not do this, another positive.

    Thanks - maybe I will give them a go. Does it take long to sign up and do you need to do much work to optimise?

    Thanks
    Stephen.

    You have to sign a contract. Hands off parking. The sales platform is where you'll make the money.

    Here is the interview that convinced me to move - http://www.domainsherpa.com/frank-schilling-internettraffic-interview/

    I get the impression they only want high type-in traffic. I have some decent traffic - maybe 50k views per month but it's not type-in. Is it worth applying?

    Shame, probably irrelvant to all but a handful of UK domain owners then unless you have other extensions.

    There can't be much type in traffic domains these days, with autocomplete in browsers?

    Hard to see how those type ins arriving at the domain are making any money from that parking page but fair play if it does

    Thanks for the replies - does any one know of any uk specific parking platforms - I think these ones are non uk based (unless I am wrong?) and before I look into these I am just interested to know if there is a UK platform that people think is ok ( not Sedo though , I know about them) - thanks

    So if youre domains dont match this criteria, they wont accept you? I really want to move away from SEDO and this looked like a really good option until I read that :(

    Rather buy or create your own template(s) and make websites there. Why pay 10-15 % commission to a domain parking company?
