Where have you had more success?

  1. Parking on your own server/hosting

    42.9%
  2. Parking at Parking service like Dan, Sedo etc.

    57.1%

    Just thought i would throw it out there on where everyone is getting more success from.

    I have parked domains on my own landing page and at Dan but for me my own parking gets more leads.

    Interesting question, I have been looking into this myself recently and have been exploring a lot of different options. In the last few weeks I have tried:

    1. EFTY - the software was nice but more geared up for the American and European market as the DAN integration can only accommodate USD or EUR payments. They also had SSL issues to begin with, but where excellent at helping to resolve them. I would have stayed if GBP was an option with DAN.

    2. DOMAINMANAGE - sadly their DNS servers are blocked by default on BT Web Protect which is enabled for all of BT's business and residential account holders unless it is manually deactivated. So I couldn't really give them a proper try.

    3. SEDO - Their landing pages seem to be blocked by Adblockers and I am aware a lot of people use them (including me) so I gave up with them.

    4. FLIP - Nice and simple but I felt there were too many low ballers on there and before I had time to set my minimum offer requirements I was bombarded with £50 offers for names like gio.co.uk and bia.co.uk and one user trying to claim that I should sell him decorated.co.uk cheaply because somebody was in the process of registering the trademark decorates.uk and decorated infringed on it. This all happened in the same day so I removed them until I had time to add my minimum offers correctly.

    5. REDIRECTING TO MY CRAPPY WEBSITE - This wasn't really an option until I have more time to sort out the website or pay someone to do it. I've had once decent 2K sale through the site but the name was parked at DAN. I think they approached directly because their first offer was below the minimum offer on DAN.

    6. DAN - This is still the best for me and the service is great, but the fees are actually quite high if you get a big sale. I am still not convinced that BIN prices work, as most of my activity comes when I have no parameters set at all, in fact my highest sale so far came this way. There are also a lot of non-payers on DAN which is a little frustrating.

    7. MY OWN LANDING PAGES - I haven't had the time or the effort to look into this properly yet. I felt that DM of EFTY would be better than creating my own and wasn't expecting the issues I ran into.

    Have you got an example of your own parking pages and are the parameters the same i.e. minimum offer or BIN set to the same level?

    @gimpydog Can you try in incognito mode for me. If that works, then you would need to clear your cache.
    Let me know how you get on.

    DAN is by far the best for me.
    However I am in the process of creating my own landing pages because I want more control over the entire process (no more anonymity, choosing which escrow to use or not, custom TXT DNS records for verification on other platforms, SEO benefits, and more)

    Flip would be great to use as landing page if it did some things similar to DAN:
    • buyers could place offers without the need to create an account
    • easier bulk import and edit - I want to simply upload a list of domains, not a predefined spreadsheet
    • a way to verify ownership and transfer a domain from a previous owner who listed it on Flip; I buy a lot of domains which have already been listed on flip, so when I try to list them there I get an error and the only solution is to ask the previous owner to remove it; not practical for hundreds of domains

    Cool, If you are using Chrome and want to use it in normal mode, just paste this into your chrome browser.
    chrome://settings/siteData?searchSubpage=flip

    Then delete flip.uk from the list

    Cheers, Colin
