Why Domain Parking?

Few days back, I puchased few domains as they were good and just released from “pending delete” period. But I had no time to place a good blog/website on them. So I decided to park those domains or something similar to park, which is better than leaving domains empty.

What is Domain Parking?

Who does not know what’s domain parking, here is some information for you. To park your domain, you have to point your domain to domain parking provider’s nameserver and add those domains to your account with them. Once ready, it will display relevant link and some content on it (content is not displayed generally). When user arrives on your domain, parking page is displayed. If links are relevant and if user clicks on any sponsored link on your website, you get share from that click’s revenue (around 60%, rest goes to parking provider) . This is general situation.

Good & Bad about Domain Parking

I have heard many good and bad things abuot domain parking, which I have mentioned below. Personally I don’t like domain parking typical page design with hardly related link on it. As I didn’t want to left domain empty till I develope something for it, I researched to find alternate to domain parking.

Pros of Domain Parking:

  • Ready in few minutes
  • Easy and quick way to utilize traffic of your domain
  • Good if you want to sell your domain, as domain parking pages can also include domain for sale notification

Cons of Domain Parking:

  • Limited customization
  • Domain parking page can be identified easily. Any advance computer user wouldn’t click on sponsored link.
  • Search engines does not like domain parking pages. Your search engine traffic will be significantly decreased within a month. This is my personal experience.
  • Many domain parking programs are paid like Godday’s premium parking.
  • Domain parking company leaves its logo or footer link on website

Now, let’s talk about alternates of domain parking. There are other alternates to domain parking like Google Adsense, WhyPark, etc. I’ll also mention pros and cons of these alternates.

Pros of Google Adsense for Domains:

  • Easy and quick setup
  • You get full revenue of all click (no domain parking company’s cut)

Cons of Google Adsense for Domains:

  • Bad design and almost no customization
  • Not at all look like a legit website (even worse than domain parking)

So far, I liked WhyPark option the most. Here are the pros and cons of WhyPark.

Pros of WhyPark:

  • Free account creation
  • Easy n quick setup
  • Variety of theme selection option
  • Customizable website title, keywords and description
  • Many header images to choose from, which suits your domain’s niche
  • Ability to upload your own header images
  • Ability to modify layout css
  • Readymade articles
  • Include related youtube videos, other product advertisement, weather, online flash games, web directory, twitter feed, rss feed and many more ways to monetize your traffic with single click. (known as Domain Apps)
  • Ability to include your own website stats code like Google Analytics, StatCounter, iStats, etc. (they provide their own tracking system too)
  • Ability to add Google Webmaster’s verification tag
  • Easy payout option through Paypal and very low minimum payout
  • Ability to add unlimited domains
  • Automatic niche detection from domain (if you are not expert in finding good keywords for your domain, it will automatically find best matching keywords for your domain to monetize from)
  • Ability to sell your domain

Cons of WhyPark:

  • WhyPark gets some share from your earning (you don’t get full earning like Google Adsense)

Honestly, I think WhyPark deserves some share for all their hardwork to make you earn. Give it a try for your domain parking needs.

I am in this Domain-Hosting market for more than 4 years. So far, I have found cPanel as best control panel for Linux server and DotNetPanel for Windows server.

Linux servers are cheap and there are lots of providers. cPanel/WHM has great flexibility and ease of use.

Many of the BIG hosting companies use modified version of cPanel but I like non-modified cPanel the best, specially “x3” skin.

There are tons of linux cPanel hosting provider but one should be careful while choosing hosting provider. Server uptime and your website speed plays very important role on your site’s ranking in google.

You can check your website’s speed performace from Google Webmasters->Labs->Site performance.

So far, I have found very reliable and supportive. Their servers are really fast with great uptime. They have 24/7 live chat support and whenever I have joined live chat, I have found 25+ support staff online.

Their UNLIMITED plan (disk space, bandwidth and domains – everything unlimited) starts at $ 7.95/month, which is not bad at all for the service which they offer. Additionaly you can save $9.94 using this Hostgator coupon O85NFxbb26.

If your budget is low, you can go with They also provide unmodified cPanel, with everything ULIMITED package, just like HostGator. And last but not the least, they have live chat support too – all these starting @ just $1.99/month! (Yeah, it’s highly affordable)

I hope this guide will lead you towards selecting a GOOD host for your website.

Here’s the set of instructions to setup SIP/VoIP calls on your Nokia E-series device.

I have used E71 device and Jumblo as SIP provider for my setup but you can use any provider of your choice.

First go to Settings->Connection->SIP Settings and create a new SIP profile from options. (Please follow instructions properly otherwise you may received “Unable to register” error).

Profile Name : Jumblo (user friendly name for your profile – you can choose any)
Service Profile : IETF
Default access point : myhome (Your wifi or 3g access point)
Public user name : (username which you have created with your SIP provider)
Use compression : No
Registration : When needed
Use security : No

Proxy Server

Proxy server address :
Realm :
User name : myusername (username which you have created with your SIP provider)
Password : yourpassword
Allow loose routing : Yes
Transport type : UDP
Port : 5060

Registrar server

Registrar server address :
Realm :
User name : myusername (username which you have created with your SIP provider)
Password : yourpassword
Allow loose routing : Yes
Transport type : UDP
Port : 5060

If you received “Connection error”, please follow these steps.

Go to Settings->Phone->Call and set “Send my internet call ID” to “Yes”. This should solve connection error issue.

Note : SIP uses port 5060 to make calls, if your ISP has blocked that port (few countries have that port blocked) then you won’t be able to make call even if you have configured it correctly.

This is my first WordPress plugin.

This plugin is useful in conjuction with any auto blogging plugin which automatically posts content to your blog but you don’t have total control on number of daily posts. Basically you can set maximum daily posts allowed on your blog.

Most of the autoblogging plugins use wordpress cron so their frequency is not so accurate.

To post X posts on your blog regularly, you can enter number of posts allowed daily and all other exceeding posts will be moved to trash (or directly deleted depending on your configuration and wordpress installation version).

If you have selected skip trash option, it won’t be possible to recover that post so please make a note of that.

UPDATE: I had received many request for this feature so I have added new feature “Limit per user/author” feature. Update your plugin to latest version to avail this feature.

I had hard time to find how to convert plain string HTML source to HtmlDocument (.net object).

As HtmlDocument does not have “new” constructor so we can’t create HtmlDocument object on the fly.

I have created following function for this purpose. Hope it helps!!

Public Function Html2Doc(ByVal src As String) As HtmlDocument
        Dim w As WebBrowser = New WebBrowser
        w.DocumentText = src
        Loop While w.ReadyState <> WebBrowserReadyState.Complete
        Return w.Document
    End Function


public HtmlDocument Html2Doc(string src)
	WebBrowser w = new WebBrowser();
	w.DocumentText = src;
	} while (w.ReadyState != WebBrowserReadyState.Complete);
	return w.Document;
