Flashback Websites: Domain Parking Companies

Whois XML Api

Yesterday on the Flashback Website series we looked at domain name registration companies and how they used look in the past and today we look at Domain Parking Companies… There has been so many parking companies that appeared that have either closed down due to acquisition or simply aren’t at the forefront of domain name parking anymore. The main players today are probably Domain Name Sales, Bodis who also owns TrafficZ,  Sedo, Rook Media who own Domain Sponsor, Parking Crew who recently acquired Name Drive and yes there are some others also who offer a great service such as Michael Gilmour’s company Park Logic and others like Above etc.
