New CashParking Pages to Boost Domain Parking Revenue

Domain parking has long been dead, especially when parking subpar domains.

I own a handful of domains, redirecting to GoDaddy’s CashParking service, that have managed to pay for themselves as a handful of domains within the portfolio on an annual basis.

Now that’s not saying much since I currently operate and manage a domain portfolio just over 2000.

Nevertheless, every bit of parking revenue helps supplement between my buy-now Afternic strategy and 3rd-party negotiations.

That’s why today’s email from GoDaddy about their launching of a newly designed CashParking page layout was music to my ears.  Here’s the email from GoDaddy:

The new CashParking page is designed to drive revenue.

Our new CashParking landing pages have been redesigned with a new layout optimized for searches and ads. This is to help you easily monetize traffic on your undeveloped domains to increase revenue.

Improvements include:

  • Higher click-through rate resulting in higher revenue.
  • Faster page load times.
  • Customizable and optimized keywords.

You don’t have to do a thing. There’s nothing to click, set-up or review. We continue to improve our products to serve you better, so just relax and enjoy your domain being monetized.

Check out your domain to see the new design.

I likely won’t, nor will you, become a millionaire simply parking domains (but hey, never know!). However, anything to help easily monetize traffic and increase the number of legit domain inquiries is a help. It’s certainly better than a goose egg.

GoDaddy appears to have already rolled out the new mobile-friendly changes based on visiting a few parked domains (see example below).

I believe it to be a step in the right direction. Previous pages were designed using a lighter experience, much more white space, and blue underlined text links for ads as well as the “Interested in this domain” text link to an inquiry form.

While I prefer the darker experience with a pop of green for the notification bar with a link and phone number to purchase domain when it’s for sale, only time will tell as will my bank account.
