    Hi all,

    Just a quick poll on how important this is to you. I know things now are different than they were 15 years ago in terms of payouts.

    Mine are parked at Sedo but I'm not bothered about click revenue, I'd prefer if there was an option on Sedo to not show any ads at all.

    Anyone interested in the domain will contact anyway. Why not make as much as possible out of any traffic opportunities.

    Well, only have a handful of parked domains with them, but I made 0.06 Euro from Sedo last month (That's off of 286 visitors so that's an effective CPM of 0.21 Euro).

    Champagne all round...

    Bodis has this option. Show no ads and auto redirect to sales lander commission free.

    @JamesTuplin, thanks, but I can't be bothered moving all my domains to Bodis, too much messing about.

    @meslam123, last September I asked Sedo how I can change all of my domains to go directly to the sales pages, without first going to the adverts page.

    Their reply was:

    That's not possible through the Nominet control panel, all you can do is set nameservers. I don't know why Sedo can't have an opt out of domain parking button to avoid having an adverts page showing first.

    Ok, thanks for confirming that, I don't know really why they complicate the process, anyway I have noticed that even if you opt out domain parking at Sedo, my browser adblocker block Sedo parking page, this is may potentially cause loss of few sales as end users will see a blank page, so it's better to move to undeveloped or any alternatives IMHO.

    I'd never used an adblocker until a few months back, I decided to try it out of interest, but have since uninstalled it.

    Same as you, if I visit a domain parked on Sedo, rather than just blocking the ads, it blocks everything on the page, including the buy this domain link that goes to the sales page.

    I did sign up at undeveloped, but again, I can't be arsed moving domains, so I'll leave them on Sedo.
