    what I see is a redirect to

    dan.DOMAIN.com
     
    The views expressed on this page by users and staff are their own, not those of NamePros.

    Are you staying there though?

    As if you don't have a (detectable) adblocker active then you will see what @Don Gondon posted and DOMAIN.dan.com in the address bar, however if you do have one then you will be redirected to the typical DAN domain for sale landing page: dan.com/buy-domain/DOMAIN

    If you are experiencing something different to that, then it sounds like both DAN and Bodis need to know about it.

    @frank-germany it's working on my end too. Try to use a browser without any types of ad blocker

    Messing around with DevTools and I have to say that the ads on the left on large screens and top for small devices looks good. It might be worth offering up an option to users as to how they wish to have their pages displayed. :xf.smile:

    1_xyB4qkiw9ELNbvJFx4IWxg.png I feel the design of the links section that Dan showed on their Medium post and Twitter looks better. Or is it just me?

    Why there is trustpilot logo on landing pages with parking? Parked domains do not participate in trustpilot rating. In other words, if the URL is dan .com/buy-domain/ domain -- then trustpilot may be shown, since dan.com is the URL. But, if the URL is dan.kfx.com or similar - then trustpilot should not be shown, as kfx .com domain never joined trustpilot. So, trustpilot here is misleading imho.

    Yes, but if you follow the source to it, it shows the trust pilot is for Dan.com. The content is still owned by Dan/Bodis, so I don't see an issue with that.

    Is it possible to use the hybrid page without using DAN nameservers?

    I also feel the for sale section should be on the right.
    Ads on the left.

    I think that should be left as an option so that people who are more concerned about clicks on mobile, can choose that option while those who are more concerned about sales, can leave it as default.

    I checked the forwarding sequence offered in different scenarios to visitors of sonnenliegen domain used in the above examples. It is too complicated and illogical. Should be fixed. Any type of request should be immediately forwarded to dan subdomain with https. Right now there are too many hops:

    1) http ://www .sonnenliegen .com --> http ://sonnenliegen .com --> http ://dan .sonnenliegen .com --> https ://dan .sonnenliegen .com

    2) https ://www .sonnenliegen .com --> https ://sonnenliegen .com --> http ://dan .sonnenliegen .com --> https ://dan .sonnenliegen .com

    3) http ://sonnenliegen .com --> http ://dan .sonnenliegen .com --> https ://dan .sonnenliegen .com

    4) https ://sonnenliegen .com --> http ://dan .sonnenliegen .com --> https ://dan .sonnenliegen .com

    I don't know if this is the case, anyway Sedo has a distribution network, it means someone go to one registrar to search for domains and get on the results Sedo domains listed as premium. I sold some in this way, but they had a fixed price, I don't know if the "make an offer" names are listed on other websites...

    Hi @legendarynames,

    It can be used by either using our A-record or Nameservers.

    Have a great day.

    @LaszloSchenk @DAN.COM

    In hybrid landers why do users need to click on of the links before the Ads are shown? IMO showing the ADs directly is much better for CTR (the extra click step will reduce CTR a lot)

    We fully agree with you, however, this is Google policy that we implemented here. If we had the choice we would have shown the full ads directly.

    In the near future we hope to experiment with new ad forms like product affiliates and direct advertisers from ads.com.

    Have a great evening,

    Dan

    Does this eliminate any trademark risks of using combinations for example PSN.whatever and results coming up with PlayStation stuff? My worry is any takeover action of allowing ads on all domains.

    Do I have to add the domains after activating the service to my account in Bodis as well?

    Good morning @Nona99

    Yes, the domain should be added to your Bodis account as well.

    Have a great weekend.

    how long after doing all the steps do the ads start showing up? (ad blocker disabled).

    UPDATE: about after 30-40 mins or so, some lines did show up that look like ad links, but when i tested one by clicking it, it brought to a blank page (so far). Maybe needs more time to propogate.

    UPDATE #2 : about 1 hour after that , it seems that it's working now.

    So probably overall 2 hours to get stuff properly going.

    @DAN.COM

    I request urgently
    to undo the minimum amount


    I ask for a zero min amount
    no amount at all


    the reason is "anchoring"
    it triggers a 3 fig price expectation in an uninformed mind

    no price showing gives more room for imagination of a higher price tag


    to comply with your needs to avoid extreme low price sales
    just create a minimum fee

    a minimum fee will make low sales useless
