First off I’d like to extend a warm hello and welcome to everyone reading this blog. My name is Matt Wegrzyn and I’m the founder & CEO of Bodis, a domain parking service. Our commitment for domain parking, along with our focus on innovation, has allowed us to be in this business for 8 years and counting.
A company blog for Bodis was inevitable. However my motivation to write about the inner workings of domain parking and a domain parking company has grown after years of reading endless misinformation in regards to domain parking and how it works. I also think our users as well as all other domainers have the right to know all the facts when it comes to domain parking. My belief is that knowledge is power, and I hope to share some of that knowledge with you.
I titled this blog post “primary upstream ad provider” for a reason. If you’re a domainer and have been parking your domains for a while, you likely have already came across this phrase a few times before. Maybe you’ve heard it on a forum or have heard it directly from someone at your parking company. Usually, people come to me and say something along the lines: “Me and you both know who it is, so why do you keep referring to them this way?”. Well I’m about to answer this question. The reason we go by “primary upstream ad provider” is because of a confidentiality agreement between us (the parking company), and this “ad provider”. The agreement specifically forbids us mentioning the ad provider by name. In business, everything is bound by an agreement. And if we sign a business agreement that includes these terms, we’re expected to abide by it.
The reason I began with this topic is because in future blogs, we’ll be using this term almost every time. We really want you, the reader, to understand why we use this term the way we do. We’ll always have the clients’ interests at heart, and we’re committed to delivering the best domain parking experience in the industry. We want you to understand parking a little more and feel more comfortable when parking domains. I believe providing some transparency will help achieve that goal.
Feel free to post any comments or questions you may have.
