    Why would people do this, I can understand for brand protection why a company has names that they point at a dead DNS but why investors? Parked.com was taken offline a long time ago and had a lot of domainers that pointed their domains to it and I was one of them, but when it was taken offline, I changed the DNS to something else. My question is why are there still so many that after all these years still have not changed the DNS and kept the domain name renewed? Of the 5000 names I checked, 34.64% were still pointed to the ns1.parked.com dns. 27% were expired. That may be a little high with a few 100 of them being .ca and I think it was classifying them as available.

    So out of 5000 names, only 2000 of them were moved to some other service. These were supposedly people who were registering these names for profit.

    In my research I found another name that is connected to Alibaba, it has 605,663 domains pointed to it, but no DNS set up on it. I understand sometimes they have names in the corporate world for brand protection that they don't use for traffic, which I view as dumb, I mean if you pay for the domain name, forward it to the home page or to a sub page, but that's their strategy.

    For regular people hoping to make money in parking, however, this is amazing that they would continue to renew a domain name that they have no way to make money from since it is not pointing to anything.

    A guess. These domains are set to auto renew.
