how to make a domain point nowhere / blank page ?


Guys, I have a few domains that I have whois privacy on for personal reasons.
Until they are developed, I dont want them pointing to the registrars standard page, which is full of ads etc...
Now, i cant point them to my server, as that would make it a no brainer as to who owns the domain, and it would make the whois privacy useless.

Is there a secure way I can point them to 'nowhere'?
I mean either a blank page or an error like if the domain doesnt exist?
Is it possible for a domain not to have any nameservers whatsoever, and if that is possible, is it safe?

Thank you very much!

You can have NO nameservers (e Nom/Domain site allows)
... while some registrars do not allow you to enter none (M oniker?)

or an invalid Nameserver (that will not resolve)

you can point it to your host, an empty index/default page
(deter'ing all spiders as well)

Thanks guys.

I'll try the no nameserver solution at eNom.

The others are at Moniker.

I can not host it as I have my own dedicated servers with my own nameservers so If I point it, a simple whois to the nameserver will show me, invalidating the privacy.

Hey, that sounds excellent!
I will use the domain itself as ns1 and ns2 and it should loop back and nothing should happen.
Thanks!

If the domain is adult in nature, could you just forward to a program via an affiliate based link? If it is a TM issue domain, no suggestions, but adult that might even garner a buck or two, by accident.

not adult nor TM.
its a personal domain that I want to launch in the future for a product of mine, but I dont want it to be 'polluted' by the registrars ads that are in no way associated with what I will be launching.

P.S.

I tried using its own ns1.domainitself.com (example), but I cant since I need to register it as a nameserver (enom gave me an error)
So at eNom, I just place no nameserver.
I wonder if that will work at Moniker.

If it is a specific product, I have seen redirects from domain names into the eBay affiliate program. Kind of irritates me when I run into one, but perhaps redirecting the surfer into eBay via an affiliate link would get you to a product page within the niche you need.

Main thing would be to check on TOS for eBay, to make sure that is okay. Other programs might make it even easier, you can find anything on Amazon. Allposters.com pay a healthy 20-25 percent commision, why not forward them to a product page depicting artwork on the topic? Heck, while they are there, they might pick up some Xmas gifts for the family.

Anyways, if you are paying for the expense of registering the domain, might as well go for a product specific affiliate link, if you can find one.

Yes, but I am about to launch some products that are not in the market.
In any case, I will take a look at amazon, that might work. I shouldnt have a problem once the products are out if it used to direct at amazon.

Still would be great to find a way though to just show a balnk page without using a server.

i don't think there is a real way, your domain always need a nameserver even if you don't put anything your registrar will do it for you. anyway i wish good luck on your business adventure.

If you put in the nameserver info. provided by your registrar and then you go to the domain forwarding section and put in a broken URL and save it, the page will be a blank, white page when you try to pull it up.

This has always worked for me. You would need a registrar that allows forwarding using their nameservers. Godaddy is where I usually do this.
