    someone must have built a program to do this, i might want to try some and compare but to change dns each time is too much work across many registrars.

    if the registry have api then you can use that to change nameservers in bulk

    There aren't any.

    The only way I know that they make money is via using their ad feeds which is completely optional (it's called Maximizer).

    Note that using Max is on top of the optimisation they do with any parking services you might want to use, ie. they will only use Max if they see that they can earn you more.

    For what you asked in your OP,
    you have the option to send all traffic in one parking service at any time you want. Since the NS are always the same, the traffic redirection happens instantaneously.

    Also, they likely (at least, used to) earn a percentage of parking revenue from the parking companies for the traffic that Above.com sends to those parking companies.

    Well, unless they affect what is shown on each parking service's interface, the amount of earnings shown on each are paid in full by the end of the month.

    eg. if PC shows that I earned $100 then $100 will be sent to me with no other reductions.

    Maybe you are confusing them with Parklogic who do get a % from all parking services they use (which is clearly shown on Parklogic's interface)

    Maximizer works in ZeroClick mode via their own network Trellian...
    This is how they earn on your domains.

    Parking companies take a share from all revenue you earn. Historically, some parking companies kept as much as 90% of that share. Bodis, when it first launched, offered members 100% of the share, which helped catapult their popularity.

    The money that Above.com earns doesn't have to come from your share; it can come from the parking companies' share in exchange for including their parking service on Above.

    And what problems to test without 3rd parties?
    ParkingCrew and Bodis, only 2 really good parking platforms nowadays.
    + Voodoo as last resort.

    Another idea can be to use different nameservers for the same domain.
    For example:
    Nameserver1=ns1.parkingcrew.net
    Nameserver2=ns1.bodis.com
    Nameserver3=ns1.sedoparking.com
    But here it depends on the registrant policy: traffic will be shared if they use round robin load balancing.
    Honestly I never tried it.

    Hi

    i have been doing above example for many years, with some high traffic names
    gives you a chance to see who pays most on average on a daily basis.

    ns1. bodis.com
    ns2. voodoo.com
    ns3. sedoparking.com
    buy. internettraffic.com

    worked particularly well when domainsponsor was still kicking, because they paid for pop-ups

    imo...

    While using many different NS on the domain might sound like a good idea, I think you mess up with the optimisation of the parking services.

    A traffic management service (like Above.com or Parklogic) has the ability -after many years of experience- to know how to keep a service 'alive' so to say so as to not lose the current optimisation.

    I would think that, not using something like that, drives the algorithms of each service crazy or just resets all the work they've done.

    Just want to say that I haven't confirmed this but it makes sense if I put down all I have learned about how parking works through the years.
