    I had an "old" domainsponsor account, which I stopped to use soon after domainsponsor was sold to rockmedia, as they unfortunately killed all useful domainconfig features originally offered by ds. And I have never used smartname. So, do I now have smartname account that I am not aware of?

    No. Only active DS users got smartname account as well. All others went back to "under review" status, and probably will never ever again became active again..

    After 7 successful years with DS, they moved me to SmartName. After 2,5 months at smartname, I didn't pass their review process, and I didn't got paid. I lost my account, and all earnings for last 2,5 months.
    So, my traffic was good enough for DS for last 7 years, but now when I got moved to SmartName, my traffic is worthless.. Strange..
    Same traffic + same domains + same ads + different provider = account suspended

    I've already contacted them. They had an issue. Payment should be sent out these days. PayPal payment should arrive today around 9pm Italy time.

    Rook paid me well for years. Then they got banned. I wonder if their very good pay has anything to do with their being banned.

    When Rook is gone, others are paying well too. But then there are new rules or something.

    I hope well for Simon and others at Rook. I hope they regained their google feed.

    It seems that only very few parking have google feed isn't it? Rook, parkingcrew, voodoo, bodis

    That's all.

    I never hear about smartnames.

    Google pretty much have monopoly on the whole industry. They simply pay best.

    lol that's a joke..
    sincerely idk why rookmedia decided to gather with smartname. (i know they lost the G feed but why smartname and not another company? this is what i mean)

    99% of the times, everything that is connected with godaddy have a terrible support:
    smartname, afternic, godaddy...
    luckily there are also great people like Joe Styler but they are too rare.

    maybe this is just my experience btw...
