Familiar faces top results from survey.
Sedo and Parked.com were selected as the best domain name parking companies in the 5th Annual Domain Name Wire Survey.
Sedo took top honors with 23% of the vote, followed by Parked.com at 18%. Here are the top five vote-getters:
1. Sedo 23%
2. Parked.com 18%
3. NameDrive 13%
4. SmartName 6%
5. DomainSponsor and Google Adsense for Domains 6%
SmartName is new to the list this year. The company has combined its three parking platforms into one, giving customers previously on GoldKey and ActiveAudience access to SmartName. The company has also launched new parking products including content sites and shops.
It’s also interesting to look at the percentage of customers that have used a service that rate it ‘best’. By this measure, SmartName takes home top honors, followed by Parked, NameDrive, and Sedo.
Amongst domainers with 1,000 or more domain names, Parked.com takes first place followed by Sedo.

Curious that Fabulous isn’t in the top 5. Well, guess I’m to blame for not voting. 😛
If online polls accurately revealed a bit more about the voters, such as the voter’s top 50 domains, I’d find far more value in polls such a this.
That’s because Fab ain’t so Fab anymore with respects to payouts compared to others.
I even moved my gambling domains away from them it got so poor.
From my years of experience Fabulous is a great company when it comes to registering domains but not so much on the parking end.

This was to be expected.
Parked at great for com/net/org and Sedo are great for ccTLD’s and languages other than English.
No surprises there!
