Aftermarket.com Now Offering Parking

20

Aftermarket.com just announced that it will be offering parking services, and it appears that they will be offering clients a Google feed to monetize traffic. This ties in nicely with its domain sales and brokerage platform.

According to an Aftermarket.com blog article that was posted this afternoon, the company said, "we've been bursting-at-the-seams excited to announce our partnership with the Internet's leading search engine and upstream provider to offer domain parking services on the Aftermarket platform." Trafficz, a parking company operated by Thought Convergence, will (more…) → Read More


Aftermarket.com Utilizes Live Chat

6

I visited a landing page that had a link to "Buy this domain name at Aftermarket.com," which I clicked to find out more about the domain name and purchase price. The landing page looks pretty clean and it has attributes that are similar in scope to my ideal passive "domain sales platform."

I had to walk away from my computer for a few moments, and shortly after leaving, I heard what sounded like a doorbell on my computer. when I returned to my computer, I saw a dialogue window had opened, and I was asked if I needed any help with respect to the sale listing.

I'm not sure how long the window was open before the chat screen popped up, but I think that is pretty neat. I don't know if other companies have implemented something like this either, but I would assume this at least helps qualify buyers. For instance, if a buyer wasn't too sure about domain name values, they could be offered information in the chat window.

This is a great offering from Aftermarket.com, and I would be interested in knowing how this increases response → Read More


Did Internet Traffic Pass Domain Sponsor?

I was looking at DomainTools' DailyChanges.com today, and I noticed that Internet Traffic DNS now has more domain names on them than Domain Sponsor DNS. I don't look at Daily Changes every day, so this likely did not just happen, and the number likely fluctuates.

According to Daily Changes, there are  1,242,445 domain names on InternetTraffic.com DNS and  1,124,620 domain names on DSRedirection.com as of today. Some people may use their own DNS for parking though, so this number may not be completely accurate. One other thing to keep in mind is that DailyChanges.com only counts the top 6 domain extensions, including .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, and .us.

On May 16, 2011, it was announced that Frank Schilling launched his InternetTraffic.com parking service. Unfortunately, I could not find the total number of names on Domain Sponsor DNS at the time Schilling's parking service launched.

It's remarkable to watch how quickly this business has grown, and the number of domain names being monetized on IT DNS continues to → Read More

Movember Tally: Over $3,000 Raised

1

Now that the calendar has turned to December, Movember is officially over for 2011. Ammar Kubba, CEO of Thought Convergence, was a moustache-growing Movember participant, which helped "raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men."

In total, Ammar's commitment helped raise over $3,000 for the campaign: http://www.mobro.co/kubba  (it's not too late to contribute to this non-profit organization).

As you can see, Ammar grew a pretty solid 'stache in a month. I am sure he (and his girlfriend) will be happy when it's shaved. Kudos to Ammar for getting involved in such a positive cause and sticking to it. → Read More
