Post Survey: domainers have a new favorite domain parking company

InternetTraffic selected as top domain parking company.
Less than two years after opening his own domain parking platform, domain investor Frank Schilling is at the top of the heap.
Participants in Domain Name Wire’s 8th annual industry survey have selected InternetTraffic as the top domain parking service.
Data show that the domain parking business is still fragmented. InternetTraffic received 22% of the vote but seven companies received at least 6%.
Here are the top parking companies according to the survey:
1. InternetTraffic 22%
2. Sedo 17%
3. Voodoo 8%
4. Bodis, Rook, GoDaddy, SmartName (6%, tie)

Re: Survey: domainers have a new favorite domain parking company

I think a skewed survey. Especially since he won't let the "everyday" small portfolio guys in.

But I do think he is doing a pretty good job of everything he does, and especially for him to "expose" the traditonal parking companies for their 'greed' was good to see.

How has he exposed anyone? All he is doing is giving away 100% of parking income, and hoping to make money from the sales platform instead.

Some might say because of his enormously deep pockets, he is just trying to put other parking companies out of business by giving the parking package away free. Who can compete with that kind of "dumping" practice?

He was very keen on monetizing my Thai portfolio a while back, and then I made the mistake of mentioning I was developing my own Thai sales platform. At that point, he just stopped talking to me, not even an explanation. Oops!

Re: Survey: domainers have a new favorite domain parking company

I read somewhere that in certain circumstances (or is it all circumstances), parking companies decide what income to apportion to what domains based on some criteria, like sector, genre and geography.

If this is true, then paying out 100% is pretty meaningless to me. I'd rather stick to PC, where I know they pay out well for the domains that I own.
