Sounds like a case of Lost in (Google) Translation.

I would like to hope that "cogged" means "trademark and/or TM domains" but I guess that would be wishful thinking.

Re: Just received this email from Dopa.com

Is there a parking service for Chinese domains that someone can recommend? Namedrive is blocked by the great firewall so it isn't an option.

Recently I moved all my Chinese domains that I had parked at ND for years, that has never got any traffic, across to Bodis, and some of them get traffic now.

Re: Just received this email from Dopa.com

@thefabfive 5% of China's computers are not blocked.

@alpha The difference is worth the trouble?
