Domain Parking

TNT Parking
Exceptional multi-page domain name parking service which supports your own custom content for truly original websites. Simply share 1/3 of your selected ad display impressions per page. This is not a spammy or misleading service, by any means. Shared ad can appear anywhere you want on the page, including the very bottom. You can also ad your own non-shared ads, banners and badges.
FYI: Domain parking is a service that allows the domain to be hosted free of charge. Some sites allow the owner to monetize domains by splitting advertising PPC (Pay-Per-Click) revenue, but then you are just showing a list of ads that no one wants to visit. That method is OK for high traffic domains or are also trying to sell the domain in the aftermarket. My preferred method is to use such a service with my own custom, original content and nurture the domain name to life as a valuable resource while using it to advertise another web property that I can monetize. TNT Parking is just such a service.

Web Hosting

Apache Website Hosting
Apache HTTPServer hosting with php, Python and perl language support; MySQL and PostgreSQL database support; cron support in a clean custom control panel where you can easily administer, upgrade or downgrade your account and site(s).

CSS Websites
Cascading Style Sheets provide website styling, formatting effects and better user interaction using less code, fewer resources and less memory, to compliment the structural web page coding of HTML. CSS Websites are therefore much more advanced, faster loading and more easily crawled by search engine spiders. In effect, CSS designed websites provide an optimized platform for humans as well as search platforms, and search engines are starting to recognize this contribution.

Design Dirt

Website Design Layout Templates

Note: Publicly available website design templates are a cookie cutter approach (as well as a design shortcut) and such websites that share templates may risk the penalization of the search engines for duplicate content if thorough customization is not addressed. Such customization can be as expensive as creating and designing a completely new, original website that is specifically tailored to the business/professional entity in question.

Color Of You
Website Tonight is an easy-to-use templated site design system which allows you to find the Color of You and post your professional presence online quickly and painlessly.

Website Monetization

Parking PPC
Just like the search engines, the domain name parking industry changes constantly. The problem is that most parking services, while intending to provide a valuable service, simply fall short based on the fact that they are at the whim of the search engines, which don't want to display sites of advertising. Yet, there are plenty of appropriate solutions in answer to the issues associated with parking.

PPC Ad Income
Pay-Per-Click advertising income is a great way to monetize well trafficked websites. Display ads and get paid for every click. However, you have to remember that any Google AdSense advertisements will compete directly with your content.

Website Promotion

Add URL Engine
Add your URL to multiple directories from a single resource web directory. Provided by a small directory network of partners willing to add new resources to their database in order to provide users with the best information and search results possible. Because there are just way too many web directories out there and you might not otherwise submit to theirs until they are bigger and more important (and have more influence).

Ad Working
Advertising in the era of new media. Online advertising is quite different from traditional advertising. Although the principle is basically the same, new technologies offer certain advantages in targeting potential sales with relevant searches. Usually any business should not drop traditional advertising and marketing, but compliment it by utilizing the new online medias. Still, to do this requires some knowledge, and this is where Ad Working comes to the assistance of small to medium sized businesses looking to expand their market.

General Web Directories

Blogs/Weblogs

Domainating
I wear a lot of hats. I've been working as a freelance web designer since I left Augustana College as Symbiotic Design. I fancy myself as an artist. I design logos, graphics, websites and ads. I draw with pencils, charcoal, pen and ink. I also do computer illustrations and digital cartoons. I sell domain names, web hosting (Linux or Windows), virtual servers (Linux or Windows), dedicated servers (Linux or Windows), SSL certificates, e-commerce software, and do-it-yourself traffic generation tools at Domain Hostmaster. I have even acquired some premium domain names as a Domainer. While premium domain name speculation is usually based on traffic and/or branding efforts, I seem to do OK. I do of course, develop a few of my own domain names, and some actually generate nice small supplemental income streams for My efforts by publishing PPC ads or banner advertising. I’ve developed many logos for many of my own domain name brands, as well as designed logos for others. In many respects I am also quite a branding expert and business identity architect. I also do search optimization, website presence promotion, online marketing and advertising. I’m also a real social networking and medias geek. And, that's not all. Then, you have my own unique take on life in this blog. ;)

Domains For Sale

Concorder
Although not officially a word in the English language, the word concorder can have quite a few meanings or connotations.

Dérivant
The French word, "dérivant", means: arising, deflecting, diverting, from, inflecting, carrying, connecting, pulling; or in French: découlant, détournant, déviant, émanant, infléchissant, procédant, provenant, se rattachant, tirant.

Designer and Artist
Designer and Artist is one of my favorite domains because it is short, puts the keyword "Design" upfront, includes the "Designer" keyword as well as professes to the excellence and dedication of such a designer as an "Artist". To top that off, there is another keyword in there, "Art". At only 14 letter characters long it is packed with punch for the Designer that is also a practicing Artist.
