Domain Parking Income


Have you ever wondered what in the world domain parking is and how do you do it? This is simply a way of generating some extra income from a domain name that you haven’t gotten around to putting a website up on. Or you can actually use this technique to make money online, the choice is yours.

For either option, parking a domain name until you’re ready to set up your website, or making money by parking your domain as your primary business, you will approach it in the same way.

Step one is to find a good company where you can park your domain. These sites will act as the middle man and will place all the ads on your parked site. They will also take care of lining up the advertisers and issuing your check, so make sure the company you choose has a good reputation.

Next, you need to determine how much of a budget you have for your domain names. If you want to buy existing domain names that are already getting traffic and are well known, it will cost you more.

To get a new, unregistered domain name will be around $10 a year but an existing high traffic domain name could easily cost hundreds or hundreds of thousands of dollars (of course your chances of making a lot of money are much better with an existing domain name).

If you are looking for an existing domain name and you are planning on buying one from an auction site you would be wise to find a few highly reputable auction sites and familiarize yourself with the process.

It can be all too easy to get caught up in the auction process and later find that you’ve grossly overspent. That is not a good way to do business. Figure out what your budget will be, become familiar with the process and under no circumstances allow yourself to go over your budget.

If you are buying a domain name for your own use, but you just can’t get to it for a while and you want to make some money in the meantime, you obviously don’t have to worry so much about the auction sites. You can get a new, unregistered domain name from any online registrar, there are many from which to choose.

Either option you choose, you do have to find a good company. You want one that will pay you at least 85% of the profit from the ads placed on your site. You also want a company that will allow you to optimize your landing pages so  you can maximize your return on investment and get a higher click through rate (CTR).

If you get stuck with a company that won’t allow you to have any control, you might regret deciding to try parking your domain in the first place.

Domain parking is a very popular method for generating income online. Whether you choose to do it only to make a little extra cash with that domain name you just bought but don’t have time to get to yet, or you are doing this as a full time income, there is a lot of opportunity to make money. Just like anything, though, you have to know what you are doing.

Tips for Domain Web Hosting

If you are a little confused about some of the terminology you are hearing online such as a domain name and domain web hosting, maybe I can help clarify things a little for you.

A domain name is like an address for your website (similar to the address for a house). It tells people where to go to find your website. The web hosting is more like the land that the house sits on, it’s the ‘physical’ part, the part where the actual data that makes up your website is stored.

There are several types of web hosting plans you can get and many different companies you can buy a web hosting plan from. Most of them are very inexpensive.

For example, you can get unlimited domain name hosting for as little as $10 a month.  You may even be able to find other places that are even cheaper and you can also get discounts if you buy long term hosting.

For most people a shared hosting account will handle their needs. This is when thousands of people share one server, each person gets a little bit for their websites.

Think of it like this: there is a big storage facility where you can rent one unit to store all your stuff in. Some of the bigger facilities have hundreds of units but you are only using one small portion, your unit. It’s a similar concept with a shared hosting plan.

You can also get a dedicated hosting plan, this is a better option for bigger sites that get a lot of traffic. A dedicated host means just that, you are the only one using a server, it’s dedicated to you and your sites. This is only needed if you have a huge website that gets a lot of traffic. This option is a lot more expensive than shared hosting, usually costing hundreds of dollars a month.

A hybrid of both dedicated and shared hosting is the VPS hosting. This is a virtual dedicated server where more than one person uses the server. Confusing I know, but think of it as a more expensive (with more options) version of shared hosting and a cheaper (but still with more options than a shared plan) version of dedicated hosting.

The last form of web hosting is the reseller hosting plan. This is simply a plan where you can sign up for a reseller account and get a dedicated server but instead of using the server all by yourself you can resell space on the servers and you will be the one who gets paid.

With so many options it may get overwhelming to decide which type of domain web hosting will be the best choice for your business. For the most part, starting small with the shared hosting will handle most of the needs for the small to mid size internet business. As you grow and get more traffic (and have more money) a dedicated or VPS site may make more sense. But for now, shared is probably your best option.

PLR Content – Growing Your ‘Content Is King’dom

We’ve all heard it, the famous phrase, ‘content is king’. Well if content is king then how the heck can we go about increasing the number of content we are able to utilize. I mean we’ve all been there, feverishly writing article after article to use for submissions and posting to our sites and the more we write the less enthusiastic we start to become about create a successful online business. So, how can we get around the one thing that all internet marketers hate doing?

PLR Content To The Rescue

If you haven’t heard about PLR(private label rights) content then it’s basically this – content that you can take and use as your own to submit to article directories, on your site, in an email series or any other method where content necessary.

In Search Of PLR Content

So where is it? Where can you go to find a whole bunch content to use as your own? Well, there are many services out there that offer quality content that members are free to use in which ever way they deem appropriate. Of course the option of taking content from the many article directories out there is possible, however there is one thing that limits this method and that is the fact you are required to add in the author box that comes attached to the article you are wanting to use.

This means their link will also have to appear on your page, intern sucking out Google Page Rank that would normally filter through to the other pages on your site. The other disadvantage is the fact that hundreds if not thousands of other marketers out there would be doing the exact same thing. Having the same page on your site as thousands of other people makes it incredibly hard to rank in the search engines.

So What’s The Other Option?

The other option would be to pay for your PLR content. There are many services that offer content to their members. This usually means you’ll have to share the content with a limited amount of people. Only members will have access to the content, however there are some things you need to look out for.

Firstly how many people will have access to the same content as you? If the service you are looking at requires you to share their content with a thousand other members, then what’s the point? You may as well go out and grab content from article directories.

Secondly work out how much you’ll be paying per article. If a membership costs $100 and in that member ship you’re going to have access to two hundred articles that would mean the cost per article is going to be $0.50. Therefore a membership that offered 400 articles would make the cost per article half of that.

PLRpro is only for those interested in developing a serious income online. It isn’t some cheap PLR membership site….it’s only for those interested in really starting their own online business. On top of that, most of the time it is closed. I suggest you take a look to see if PLRpro is open and if it is, don’t hesitate to jump in!
