Domain parking is actually the largest source of passive income. Although not as many as a few years ago, it is still a very lucrative business and one of the best kept secrets of the Internet.
What is domain parking?
A very simple and precise definition of domain parking involves the purchase of domain names for the sole reason of “parking”. A parked domain is a web page that only shows ads, adding Google AdSense type ads. Since it is web pages against Google AdSense TOS that only show ads, parked domains need to be hosted with a domain parking company.
Is any risks in domain parking?
There is very little risk associated with this activity. While it costs about $ 9 per year to register each domain, there are domain name registrars who let you test the domains and remove them within a grace period for a short period of time for 5 days. Currently the so-called deletion fee is approximately $ 1. If you decide to delete (return) the domain, you get the balance credited back to your account so you can repeat the process. You can test as many domains as you want at a time, and keep only those who are going to pay their annual registration fees in parking revenue.
Where to Park Domain Names?
When you test your domain names for revenue, and after you decide which domains to keep, you must park these domains with the parking company. There are many to choose from, and you’ll have to run a Google search for “domain parking” to get a list of some of them.
Once you team up with the domain parking company and sign-up, all you have to do is point the domain’s nameservers to those points in the parking company and add the domain to your account. The entire process takes a few minutes.
Most parking companies will supply several options to help you optimize the look and appearance of your parked domain to increase CTR (click-through rate) on your ads. The higher the CTR, the more revenue you will receive. It will also be possible to choose a keyword for your parked domain. The choice of keywords should be relevant to the topic of the domain and will be one of your most important choices. This will affect your CTR and the value of each click.
