Domain name service drops upfront fees.
[Update: What I couldn’t write about yesterday but can now is that Parked.com has purchased WhyPark.] Domain name parking alternative WhyPark has dropped its upfront fees and is now free. Previously, WhyPark charged $99 for the first 100 web sites. Add-on services, such as article writing and search engine submissions, are still available for a fee.
WhyPark enables domain name owners to create dynamically updated web sites on their domain names. Using article feeds and various other content sources, clients can quickly develop their domain names. The system is flexible and allows users to customize templates and add their own content.
WhyPark is a good solution for domain names that receive little type-in traffic. A properly designed and promoted WhyPark site can get into organic search listings, driving visitors and revenue. The system includes an integrated two-click advertising system, similar to what you find on most domain parking pages.
Some people shied away from the system in the past because of the upfront fees, so I expect WhyPark to rapidly grow its user base going forward.
