The Concept of Domain Parking

Domain Parking is the registration of a domain name without the intent to create and develop a unique site but rather "reserve" it for future development by the registrant or another party. A parked page can potentially generate high levels of traffic, and thus may just be a page full of advertisements.[1]

Many domainers do not do this on their own, but instead contract out their domain or domain portfolio to be parked via a parking company. The company will create the landing page of the website filled with ads and in exchange obtain a percentage of the advertising revenue. [2] The domainer may be holding onto the parked domain to sell later, or also could be satisfied with retaining the parked page in exchange for consistent advertising revenue.[3]

The company offers services for everything related to parking, appraisal, domain store and site building. [4] Traffic Media has as a main object of activity to provide web presence related solutions for companies, directors, publishers etc. The company was established in 2011 and its CEO is Gal Moran. [5]
