Survey: domainers have a new favorite domain parking company

InternetTraffic selected as top domain parking company.

Less than two years after opening his own domain parking platform, domain investor Frank Schilling is at the top of the heap.

Participants in Domain Name Wire’s 8th annual industry survey have selected InternetTraffic as the top domain parking service.

Data show that the domain parking business is still fragmented. InternetTraffic received 22% of the vote but seven companies received at least 6%.

Here are the top parking companies according to the survey:

1. InternetTraffic 22%
2. Sedo 17%
3. Voodoo 8%
4. Bodis, Rook, GoDaddy, SmartName (6%, tie)

Domain owners continue to report relatively low RPMs on their parked domains.

38% reported earning less than $10 per 1,000 page views in 2012:


42% of respondents said their domain parking revenue was down in 2012 compared to the prior year, with 15% reporting a drop of at least half.

29% reported an increase while 28% said it was flat.

Domainers aren’t bullish about 2013, either. 34% think parking revenue will go down while only 24% predict an improvement.
