Company created to challenge domain parking is now just a domain parking company.
It has come full circle.
DomainApps, which came to life as WhyPark and an alternative to domain name parking, will now become just a parking company.
The company sent an email to customers this morning stating that it will discontinue content sites effective October 1. Instead, DomainApps will “continue to monetize your domains with our top-tier advertising partner, bringing you the highest revenue possible.”
In 2006, WhyPark came onto the scene and billed itself as an alternative to flagging domain parking revenue. The system created (mostly) auto-generated content sites on domain names. That worked for a while, until Google caught on and didn’t give good rankings to the sites.
Domain name parking company Parked.com acquired WhyPark in 2009. In January 2012, WhyPark changed its name to DomainApps. Parked.com then shut down, and DomainApps essentially took over standard domain parking for Parked.
Now DomainApps will just offer domain parking.
The only constant is change…
