What is Domain Parking? How Do I Use It for My IDN?

Domain parking is when one purchases and registers a site but does not use that site for any specific purpose such as business or email. Domain parking is a tactic used by professional and casual domainers and investors to secure a site that may be of interest or monetary value down the line. The “parking” aspect of this transaction relates to the fact that the site is not developed and essentially “parked” and waiting for someone else to come by offer a larger sum of money for that site.

Domain parking is a great tactic for IDNs as there are still countless domains in different languages that can and will be considered valuable due to their short names and native language appeal. But remember, parking a domain does not ensure you will turn a profit on it. To get an immediate return on your IDN, use it for your business and create and maintain the webpage. If you have the means to wait it out until someone is interested in your site and offers you the right amount of money, then park your domain and wait for opportunities.
