    Advertising (learn more)

    Advertise virtually anything here, with CPM banner ads, CPM email ads and CPC contextual links. You can target relevant areas of the site and show ads based on geographical location of the user if you wish.

    Starts at just $1 per CPM or $0.10 per CPC.

Is this normal?

    Hi everyone,

    I am participating in an auction at one of the expired domain registrars. The auction is not over and Alexa shows the domain as being live. I went there and they have a standard advertising page (oingo). I know for sure that this domain wasn't parked a week ago. What does this mean? Is the registrar checking the amount of traffic? I find this very odd. Please shed some light on this issue if you can. Whois doesn't return any record for this domain (No match for "domain.com").

    Thank you!

    The domain in question is a commonly used phrase in another language. Some 20k links to it of good quality. Anyone with experience in registering expired domains care to give me their opinion on the value? IF you have a lot of quality posts here PM me for URL.

    Thanks,

    Nine

    It sounds more like the auction site just has the name parked until the auction is over and the new winner is awarded the name.

    Unfortunately, during that time, you can loose many links and pagerank... people don't like to see that they are linking to a parked site :)
