Lightbulb Intrview with NameDrive LLC

This is for russian auditory, but still.

Интервью на русском языке можно прочитать тут: http://www.idnblog.ru/2007/12/namedrive-llc.html

Interview was represented by Ed Russell President NameDrive LLC.

Hello Ed, could you please tell us something about you.

I have been involved in the domain industry since 2004. In August 2005, I was one of the original founding members of NameDrive. I am President of NameDrive and my role involves client support, system development and public relations. I studied languages at the University of Newcastle in England and am originally from London.

The earning chances provided by the "Domain Parking" service aren't widely known. Could you briefly explain how does domain parking work.

Domain parking is a way of making money from domains which do not have active websites on them. Many domains which are registered but not used for webistes still have traffic on them. Parking is a way of making money out of this natural traffic. It is important to note that domain parking only allows natural type in traffic, it is not a way of making money by generating traffic and driving it to your parked domains. This is not allowed on our system.

NameDrive offers many different services. Could you describe some of them?

Our core product is domain parking. It is what we have done from the start, what has made us a real player in the domain industry and what we will always continue to do. The other products complement domain parking in different domain areas.

Park&Sell is a unique way to sell domains. These sales are not done based on the generic value of the domain, but based on what the domain actually earns. As the most important commodity on the internet is traffic, we offer users the option to buy and sell based purely on traffic earnings. In this, Park&Sell is a unique platform.

BrokerSelect is a premium brokerage program for generic domains. While we focus mainly on traffic with our domain parking and Park&Sell platform, we also have a background in brokerage and have sealed some large deals, most notably blackjack.de for €300,000 (the biggest-ever .de domain at the time in 2006) and televisions.com for $215,000.

BuildingBlocks is a platform for bringing generic domain owners together with potential domain developers to build out full projects, however, this is still in the beta phase.

NDCorporate is basically the NameDrive products packaged for large portfolio owners or companies or administrate large domain portfolios, such as registrars. It is an opportunity to offer NameDrive as a parking solution via your own page.


I was asking at different forums, which questions the users would like to ask NameDrive. The most frequently question was „When it will be possible to receive payments via such systems as Webmoney or Яндекс?“ In Russia it’s not possible to receive payments via PayPal. What could you tell us about this subject?

We are working very closely with WebMoney and we hope to have this implemented very shortly so Russians can use NameDrive as easily as other countries around the globe.

Another question was „Is ND planning to have a Russian homepage?“ Many domainers are not using NameDrive service because it doesn’t have a Russian interface.

This is another question I can answer in the affirmative. It is currently being translated but I can’t give a concrete date for the launch.

NameDrive is supporting IDN domains. In 2008 ICANN is going to lunch IDN.IDN (http://пример.испытание). Will NameDrive support these domains too?

Again, yes. The system is already ready to receive these, it’s just a case of changing the configuration.

Could you please give some advice to domainers using ND? Popular keywords or layouts, any advice?

Each domain is different. However, we are finding that the Marquee and Marquee II templates perform well as layouts.

For keywords, it is important to always use the most relevant keyword to your specific domain. This will increase the click through rate, the return for the advertiser and will ensure the best payouts from our advertising partner as, the better a domain converts, the more they pay.
If you are not sure how to optimize your domain, it is worth looking at the searches your users make on the page to see what they are searching for and then optimize for what the users are looking for.

If you have Russian terms, setting a Russian term (we support IDN characters for the keywords) would certainly help to get the best click through rate on your domains.

Could you tell us about ND planes fort he future: New ideas, new projects, new services.

We are working on expanding our parking options so that we can get better earnings for our clients. We will also be bringing out some new products to expand our support for the domaining community in 2008, but I don’t want to say too much as it’s still under development!

Your wishes for the domainers.


We are very proud to be the most international parking program and have our homepage in 6 languages already. Russian will soon be added and, as the parking company who was first to implement IDN support, we feel we are very well placed to provide Russian domainers with a premium service unavailable elsewhere. We look forward to seeing you in 2008 and hope you enjoy using NameDrive in the New Year and beyond.

Re: Intrview with NameDrive LLC

By the way, I've had just a couple visits to my Georgian site and finally a click (from Europe). When I go to the test site on ND it's mostly about the state of Georgia in the US. Any idea if ND plans to support Georgian?

I should ask.

I have many georgian IDNs, and they all have 3-5 clicks for all time they parked.

Also I have two georgian sites - porn.com and games.com (developing now)

Can You give Your link?

Sure. It's მუსიკა.com. I believe this is the proper term for "music", is it not? Thank you.

Perfect one!

I think it is correct.

I use russian keywords for georgian domains as most of georgians know this language - they study it in school
