How to maximise profit from your parked domains
Domain parking is one of the fastest-growing corners of the internet. As we have covered in one of our other topics, there are more than 920 million unused website names just gathering dust online. This has led to an increase in the amount of domain parking services offering desirable propositions to those of you who may own a website name but have no current planned use for it, or no use at all. They provide a financial incentive by allowing you to earn money through schemes such as affiliate schemes, allowing you to earn passive, risk-free income from your website name, that otherwise would have just been gathering dust. Today we are going to look at the best practices when it comes to how to maximise profit from your parked domains.
How can I earn money from my parked domains?
If you have some websites that you don’t currently have a use for. You may be now considering how can you effectively park them so as to return your passive income on your investments so far in them. Well, that is what we are going to cover in this section. As you may be thinking it may be too good to be true. Being able to earn a passive income from something that otherwise wouldn’t have been earning you a single penny. And to run you through this we are going to run through how the domain parking industry works and then how our innovative proposition at DomainUI can help net you maximum profit.
Firstly, you’re going to want to choose your domain parking provider. You want to choose one that is reputable and has credibility attached to its name. There are plenty to choose from, each offering you different ways and means to earn passive income from your domain. For example here at DomainUI, we offer something innovative that has disrupted the market allowing you to earn money from your parked domain through an affiliate scheme. Once you have signed up to your chosen parked domain providing, you then need to point your DNS or ‘Domain Name Server’ settings towards their parking servers. If you choose to go with us at DomainUI we can help you with this.
How to start earning money
Now you have got yourself all set up with your chosen domain parking provider. You now need to establish how you are going to maximise profit from this service. Typically, most companies will use your domain name as a ‘landing page’ with adverts that are relevant to your name or niche. For example, if you have a website name that is connected to arts and crafts, you may find that they list items that are related to this market on theirs. And so the stronger a domain name you have, the more traffic you will find will be driven towards these adverts. Thus, therefore, maximising the chance of people hitting adverts that are relevant to their search and interests, converting into sales and more commission for you.
And so if you want to maximise your earnings from your parked domain, a lot of it lies in how strong your domain name is and how popular the sector you’re targeting is. You’re also going to want to make sure to do your research on the provider you choose. You’re going to want to choose a provider that offers adverts that have credence backing them to reassure a user that they are safe to go ahead and click on the advert and subsequently make a secure online purchase. And that’s why we have chosen Amazon as our affiliate scheme here at DomainUI. A brand that almost everyone on the planet is familiar with.
How do clicks turn into money?
We will briefly explain how the model works in an affiliate scheme, and use ours as an example. If you choose to park your domain with us. We will run adverts on your parked domain. Of course, as closely linked and relevant to your domain as possible. When someone clicks on the advert, it does go through to the Amazon website, but the URL will have your affiliate tag attached to it. The easy way to think of this is as a referrer name badge attached to it. So if the customer clicks on your advert, goes through to Amazon, and eventually completes a purchase. It will then be determined that your advert was behind the sale, Amazon will then pay a percentage commission to your Amazon Affiliate account.
Do I still have control of my domain whilst earning profit via a parking domain service?
When you use a domain parking service, you are pointing where your website name directs people and nothing more. And in this instance, pointing it towards their parking servers. You still have full control over your domain name. At any moment in time, you can take back control by pointing your DNS servers back at your original domain provider. However, up until this stage you can passively earn commission through our affiliate scheme. Essentially this means you can earn income and profit from your website up until the point you want to take back control, or when you want to establish a website, by which moment in time your website name will have already started accruing traffic.
