    I recently realized the major parking providers I have accounts with are NOT supporting or using an SSL (Authority Certificate) meaning your parked pages have an open padlock and a notice saying it's Not Secure, or even worse such as Google sometimes saying we recommend you do not visit as it may be a scam site or identity theft risk, etc. That means a lot of people will exit when they see the warning and an open padlock.

    Does anyone know of a provider who does in fact support SSL The provider I just called said there are no plans because it costs too much money to purchase SSL Authority Certificates.

    The fact this thread has no comments and only 17 views speaks wonders to me how parking is dead in the water. It indicates to me parked revenues are so extremely low for most members here they simply don't care about their parked pages (or non-ssl mini-sites) not being secure to visitors and impacting their traffic and clicks. The small number of domainers who manage to still make revenue on parking do care but likely do not visit this forum so no feedback from them, imo.

    Undeveloped (for landing pages, no ad parking) supports SSL

    Thanks for feedback. P.S. I visited one of your domains in your list which caught my eye Yonkey- dot-com and Google reports it as being not secure in address bar (P.S. A very nice page but with the non-secure negativity issue to visitors).

    No, it probably speaks about nobody gives a damn about SSL on parking pages.

    I have couple hundreds of live sites and only few of them, ones where i take payments or collect user data, have SSL. Why should i bother with all other sites?

    Quick googling showed me only 39,2% of all sites are using https now https://w3techs.com/technologies/details/ce-httpsdefault/all/all

    I tell you what. When somebody lands on your parked page, if he is even for a millimeter tech savvy, he won't click the ad links at that page. If he is crass enough to click those links, he for sure has no clue about open padlock and stuff like this.

    I'm not saying here https is bad nor i advise against. Just saying.
