Hey everyone,

We all know about parking and the profitability that comes with that solution. I am here to offer a new revenue stream for domainers that you will only find with DynaDomains.

What DynaDomains does is allows your single domain to be leased the hundreds of people, but all at the same time. Crazy right? You make a nice ~70% commission on each lease paid out monthly. All the magic is hidden behind the scenes because all you need to do is set up a 301 redirect. That's all.

You could onboard your first domain in 5 minutes to try us out - I promise its totally painless.
1. Create an account
2. Onboard your domain and accept a suitable commission and rate for your domain
3. Setup the redirect to our routing engine
Now you're live!

With DynaDomains we handle everything and as a domainer - I know how important inbound leads are - that is why we will redirect all non-leased requests to your generic domain sale page or we show an autogenerated page for potential buyers to inquire on.

What's it cost?
As a domainer - absolutely nothing. This literally just becomes another potential revenue stream while you manage inbound leads as you were before.

How do I make money?
When you onboard a domain (or 100) you will determine the rate and commission you wish to be paid with, typically 65 to 75%.

Once your domain is live businesses and marketers can now lease your domain over their own geographic area they get to define. The lessee pays per square mile. Whatever the lessee pays per month you get a huge cut of that. We payout our domain partners monthly.

We also pre-validate these lessees so your domain is not associated with a malicious or illegal website - any grey area and we will ask you first.

What if I hate you?
Kind of aggressive. If you don't like us or you sell the domain - just remove the domain from your domain dashboard and remove the redirect from wherever you manage the domain. You can also just remove the redirect and we will find out that way also but that is really unprofessional - don't ya think?

Okay, but why should I care?
Well, we are the only service on the entire internet that is going to let you do this kind of monetization with this amount of flexibility and freedom. If you don't like our suggested rates you can request a custom quote and I can assure you we can find some pretty number to settle on.

But, if you need another reason besides new easy money...
If you onboard a domain at all and email us just saying you came from NamePros we will bump up your commission to 80% (obviously only for a limited time).
NOTE: The 80% commission for NamePros members will stop June 13th 2020 @ 5PM PST!

Closing Statements.
That's all - I'm done shilling myself now. I hope to hear back from some fellow domainers. I began this whole startup because I think we can all agree parking just doesn't bring in revenue like it needs to - sure a few dollars here and that is great, but unless you have some golden premium domain with high traffic you are hardly making much.

DynaDomains allows us to monetize any unused domains that we have in a way we never could before without interrupting what we are already doing to squeeze every dollar out until the final sale.

Thanks.

The views expressed on this page by users and staff are their own, not those of NamePros.
Interesting concept will there be a referral program?

Im very confused, you will attempt to lease a single domain to multiple people as long as the geographical location doesn't overlap? and all this time the said domain will still be parked with for sale landing page ?

how can there be multiple leases on a single domain ?
needing clarity on basically every detail.

Do you have samples of domains already leased ?

I commend you on an innovative platform. Definitely an out of box idea.

The big problem I see is all it takes is one bad apple to ruin the reputation of a domain.

When I lease out my names I’m already concerned about this, what more if dozens of companies are using my domain.

Any thoughts to this?

@lock - Current there is not since we just launched. That being said there is plans for that in the future so you can earn residuals on others leasing there domain!

@ecomslice - We dont attempt to lease a domain to multiple people, we actually DO it. Each lease is reserved over a specific geographic area they get to define. Visitors physically within that "geo-fenced" would be redirected to whatever business' site that owns that lease! We are essentially a pass-through service when a visitor is outside of a geo-lease.

If you're outside a lease it would go to your generic domain sale page. This can be defined by you or auto-generated by us.

@davidc1 - We just launched around the start of March, so we are still populating our marketplace before targeted marketing the lessees. If you wanted to see whats already online you can view the marketplace here

@omnia - Got your request, just sent you your manual quote!

@Zagalee - Thank you!

@OnlineBusiness.com - We do our best to prevent this. When a lease is created we do check first if the domain it is going to is even valid, of course. The next step is making sure the site is not malicious or illegal. That process is actually manually approved. Its pretty high-touch but at this stage, it should be. Once a domain for a lease is set it cannot be changed on the fly.

The owner of the ending domain would have to change where that ending domain points to get around that.

That being said you are correct - it is a legitimate concern and we are working up creative solutions on how to automate that to fit any use case.

It is an interesting idea. Of course rental lease has been around awhile but it is the idea of geotargeting, thereby reducing costs, that is novel.

Do you plan only .com domain names on site?

Best wishes with the enterprise.

Very interesting model, I remember an idea like this being floated at a recent Names on, glad to see someone is doing it.

I think the issue is most of the domains I currently see listed have next to zero local value. This might work if you can get people with valuable service names onboard, like movers/com or duilawyers/com or acrepair of whatever, if you had names like that, your value proposition would be obvious. Brandables won't work.

The other issue is your branding... You've gotta find a better name because this makes me think of Dynadot, and it doesn't help you that you're on a .co. I think it's difficult to trust a domain name company that doesn't operate on a .com.

Best of luck!

@Bob Hawkes Amazing to have your input on this. Right now I support all TLDs! .coms are the target because the end customer are marketers and they best respond to .com.

That being said other TLD's can be very valuable depending on the company and I would hate to limit their options.

Where TLD restrictions come in I will abide, but all are welcome.

@Nametree You're spot on actually. I don't want to limit a domainer's ability to use the platform nor will I assume what the end-user actually wants since it can wildly vary depending on their exact need.

That being said generic local names will go far with DynaDomains.

Speaking of DynaDomains - yes I was actually kicking around a lot of names prior. I acquired one recently that might fit, ActiveParker. I'm sure a member on here owns DynaDomains.com - I know its for sale for 50k which at my current operational budget is totally unfeasible.

I can imagine likely in the future I will hop to a new name - mostly due to the DynaDot allusion.

You make all totally valid and fair points. Thanks for giving me some more input on some things I maybe would have suspected later down the line.

01. What is your advice to non-residents? For example, if I was staying in the U.S. but temporarily, I would come to Dubai for a few months. I want to visit the United States of America site, not Dubai.
I think below you need to provide options to access other websites.

02. What about consumer disputes, suppose that if there is one destination problem, all regions will suffer.

Best of Luck.

I actually like the DynaDomains, as the dyna emphasizes the dynamic aspect of how the service works. I don't personally see conflict with Dynadot, since your main clients are not themselves much into domain names I think. Views differ re .co, but it is being used by some startups and if going to something other than .com, not a bad choice in my opinion.

I am glad to hear that you are open to extensions other than just .com. I think it is wise to consider other TLDs, looking at the strength on both side of the dot. On that too need to be selective though.

I tend to agree with the following comment from @Nametree
I think the issue is most of the domains I currently see listed have next to zero local value. This might work if you can get people with valuable service names onboard, like movers/com or duilawyers/com or acrepair of whatever, if you had names like that, your value proposition would be obvious. Brandables won't work.
It is really hard for a startup to bring on board some high value domains that represent products, services and common expressions, but I think those are the kind of names that would appeal to potential clients.

I know that it is important to stock shelves, but I would be pretty selective right from the start on what you accept on your site. And if you can someone entice an owner of a name of the type @Nametree mentions it would be a huge boost. It is not to say that some niche names can't work on your model, I think they could, but you need on page one some obviously huge market great names.

So if someone uses a VPN are they served from the geo area where the VPN server is, or where they really are?

Best wishes,

Bob

@Bob Hawkes Thank you for that. You are correct and I am trying to target higher-end but perfect for leasing domains but have not gotten much response from them as of yet. If anything the response has been somewhat hostile for some reason.

As for VPN that problem is very real and is a concern. The caveat of that is that a considerable amount of traffic online is mobile and mobile users are very unlikely to use a VPN. They can, but they are not the majority of use cases.

Desktops, of course, do often use VPNs and there would be no circumvention around that as it sits currently. When marketing to the buyers I am upfront though about the limitations of the technology so I do not mislead them on what DynaDomains can and cannot do.

Thanks again.

You want a redirect, ok.

Will the other person who's taking the domain on lease also get some redirect link juice?

This is the same thing a company was doing years ago that used octane360.com for their site. They never gave anyone a chance to use it except super premium name owners. That may be why they failed. I loved the concept and was disappointed that I couldn't use it.
I will open an account and wish you great success!

@VaibhavA You redirect to us and if someone is inside a leasing zone we forward to that business - super simple :)

@korganian - I never heard of Octane360.com. I know about RootOrange and Geonetry only. Both of those projects were abandoned or are unmaintained for what I am sure was the same exact reason! Also they didn't allow custom leasing zone for lessees. Id like to learn more about octane360....

Glad to have you on board also :)

:smug:Ha! I was wrong. They did not fail after all. Local.com bought Octane360.com for $11 Million ten years ago and local.com then abandoned use of the domain.

Maybe you can sell your business for $11 Million some day too!

"the domain is not set to expire within next 6 months" is that a hard and fast rule? what if I do plan to renew it within the time period?

Interesting project, congrats for starting it.

Question:

Let's say I'm leasing a domain to someone for $50 a month and they pay on the 1st of every month. Let's say they've paid for March, April, May, and will also pay on the 1st of June. But on June 5 I receive an offer for the domain (from someone else) that is too good to refuse - so I really want to sell the domain on that day.

What happens in this scenario? I mean, sure, I can refund the $50 that was paid to lease the domain for June, but the leasee will have been left with a bad experience - since he/she is counting on fully using my name each and every month they're paying for it.

I'd say this is something that needs to be thought out.

Curious, is the leasing global?

Can I do some outbound and get 10 - 20 companies/websites in different parts of the world to sign up and create 10 x $$ ?

If I have 10 people doing a GEO lease what happens if someone comes along a buys the name as it it is showing a purchase price and lease price on the redirect
