The subject of monetizing a domain has been interesting to say the least, if not contentious.
For un-developed domains, domainers (those who buy & sell domain names either professionally or as a hobby) traditionally used
domain parking services to monetize their domains. These parked domains
are typically comprised of single static pages with some ads on them.
However, the domain industry has changed significantly over the past years and it has become increasingly
difficult to monetize your domains. If you have a high quality domain
(as we already discussed here
), then chances are
your domain will receive some organic traffic naturally and from that traffic, you can monetize.
But for the majority of the domains, attracting organic traffic (e.g. users typing the address directly and landing on your domain) is
difficult, let alone monetizing that small amount of traffic.
If you have read through the documentations available, Newsy provides a number of novel features to elevate your
domain into a highly functional and fully developed content-driven website with built-in strategies to drive traffic.
Traditionally, an easy way for a parked domain to earn money was for the parking service to place ads for you. That means
you sign up and the parking services like Sedo will place ads of their choice onto your domain. While this approach is
convenient, you don't actually have a control over what ads are displayed on your site and underlying details
(e.g. what cut or fees are taken) are never transparent.
Newsy wants to change this. We want you to be in complete control over your site's revenue-generating power
and bring the ads that you want to display yourself. Newsy doesn't take any cut or commission from your ads.
They are simply displayed as you choose.

set it all up, but we make it easy so that once you set it up, you can easily apply the advertising across all of your
