War for parked domains escalates.
Happy Leap Day! Here’s some domain name news you can use…
Adam Strong wonders “If I register domains today does that mean I don’t have a renewal date for next year ? Do I get 4 years for the price of 1.â€ Good question, Adam…
…Domain parking service DomainSponsor announced a promotion for March. New clients will automatically receive a 20% bonus on their March payouts for all domains transferred to DomainSponsor. Existing clients can also receive a 20% bonus on the March commissions for newly transferred names as long as their total March average daily traffic and revenue is 20% higher than their February average daily totals. Existing clients must sign up to be eligible. If you haven’t tried the service yet, now might be a good opportunity to give it a one month test run.
As competition intensifies, you can expect to see more bonus offers like this. Growth from customers who have never parked their domains before is virtually non-existent, so the parking companies must compete for each others’ clients…
…Today is the last day of Ask.com’s Google sub-syndication feed. This will affect a number of parking services that used the feed. Parked.com uses it for traffic it can’t monetize with Yahoo’s feed. Not coincidentally, Skenzo announced yesterday that it has inked an ad deal with Yahoo.
What was the verdict on the leap year registration?!
Annoyed a missing the domain sponser offer, hadent heard of them before now.
