Hello, fellow domainers. I decided recently to focus more on making money from domain parking rather than reaching out to potential buyers to sell domains as it became a very time-consuming job.

I was able to earn about $800 the last month from domain parking alone (Bodis + custom parking pages) and thought to share the strategy I use, plus show the stats of one of my domain names that earned $160 USD the last month (purchase price $5 USD).

Here are the stats from October 7 (the day I parked the name with Bodis) until October 31:

This is the data for 1 of my names - freebitcoin / dot / pro. I don't mind sharing the name, but don't type it in the forum, please.

I bought the name about 10 months ago or so for $5 USD. It wasn't getting any traffic until the end of September. I decided to give it a shot on Bodis and the results were pretty good for me.

I figured out what was the reason that the name was getting an insane amount of type-in traffic every day. And the reason is a website called "free bitcoinS / dot / pro" recently launched and it has about 700 organic visitors every month. A lot of people type the domain name without an S at the end.

Was not hard to find a couple more websites like this, register a name for $4- $5 USD (mainly .TOP and .PRO extension) and start earning some money.

The way I find such websites is by using the tool called similarweb / dot/ com.

I am looking for websites related to finance/crypto. I start the search by typing one of these words: free, top, best, hot, mega, and then I add a keyword like these ones: solana, bitcoin, crypto, invest, etc.

Here is an example of using similarweb:

As you can see, a site called free solana / dot / top appeared. I opened Dyna and registered the same name with an S at the end. I already earned some money from that one too.

I hope you get the idea. If there are websites that end with an S, I try to register the same name in the same extension but without an S, and vice versa.

We are living in difficult times and I know there are a lot of people struggling to make some money. It is the only reason I share this. Hope I can help someone buy some gifts for the New Year.

Be well.

Hi

as i read it, the focus change, with intent to make money, has been successful, so far.

the domain you registered and again the intent, regardless to whether the terms are generic or not... could be said as registered "in bad faith".
posting screenshots and methods to query, is enough weight for any complaint to illustrate that argument.

i know you may want to "share", but just be aware,
of what you're putting out there.


imo....

Thanks for pointing out the "bad faith" issue. Wouldn't the ad-parking companies screen such a domain out, then? For Bodis, Above, and Parking Crew, there does seem to be a fairly rigorous screening process for the domains.

Hi

the comment was a precaution to what could happen, given the evidence posted.

so, no need to read more into it, than what was stated.

just saying....

Thanks for this. How do you then verify ownership for listing on other sites if the domain is parked away from your registrar

Good question. For Bodis, they do have a manual verification process. It's unclear how, but once you are a verified member, they seem to do the processing without requiring text or cname modifications at the registrar level.

Hi

you add the domain to your account, then change nameservers to Bodis.
that is typical verification process.

once the domain is "listed" in that account, then you can change NS for that name to wherever you want.

I only register names that are common terms to avoid trademark violations.

I had one domain tesla pickups .com that was making money, but I got rid if it.

Hi, Could you please give examples of common terms?

There is nothing as common terms. If you have a typo and the domain is parked its considered Cybersquating. You can also lose the domain in an UDRP, but the chances you will get an UDRP from original URL owner are smaller than having invented words or brandable typo.

Thanks for this, much appreciated.

I have a domain listed on brandbucket but I noticed the domain received 5k+ unique visit in the last 90 days according to BB I was curious and decided to dig dip on it out then I found out the .co has been developed to a App store website. I changed the NS to Bodis and have been earning an average of $3 with the domain everyday since January first. Did you suggest I keep the domain parked or try to build something around it? Since 100% of the traffic is type-in traffic.

2. Did you have other methods you use to pick domain like considering backlinks and all.

Once again, this is a very informative post and thanks for sharing.

Hello, thanks for the kind words. I did not do link-building of any kind. I only get pure type-in traffic.

When it comes to building something on top of the domain name, I would say it depends on the kind of domain name itself.

For example, I build a lot of websites (like tools websites) on top of dictionary-word domain names like ****Maker, ****Builder, etc. And I do this because these kinds of names get a good amount of type-in traffic.

But if it is a trademarked name, I would avoid doing so.

Thank you for your response, much appreciated. The domain also get 100% type in traffic. Can I dm you the domain to see your opinion on either developing it or keeping it packed?

Hi

if, it was mine, i'd keep it parked for now.

if, the domain can be used for a commercial product or service, that is NOT in same category as the .co domain, then you could explore that option, while earning some parking revenue to offset future development costs.
