Sedo is top parking company, but many newcomers rank in the top 10.
Sedo and SedoPro are the top domain name parking companies according to respondents in Domain Name Wire’s 7th annual domain name industry survey. But a lot of new parking companies are challenging it.
In absolute numbers, Sedo was ranked top. Google’s self-serve Adsense for Domains program, which is closing, ranked second.
A good way to look at the parking rankings is to consider what percentage of people who have used a particular service voted for that service. Most people have tried multiple parking services so they have a good idea of relative experience.
Here are the top 10, ranked by percentage of people who have used the service that voted it as their favorite. All companies in the top 10 were used by 47 or more survey respondents.
1. Sedo/SedoPro 76%
2. Google Adsense for Domains 70%
3. InternetTraffic 61%
4. HotKeys 38%
5. The Parking Place 37%
6. NameDrive 36%
7. Voodoo 35%
8. Bodis 34%
9. Rook Media 34%
10. Domain Advertising 33%
Amazingly, four of these companies weren’t around during last year’s survey: InternetTraffic, The Parking Place, Voodoo, and Rook Media.
