TrafficZ closed its doors at the beginning of 2015.  It was the first domain parking company that I used.  I remember Kevin Vo contacting me to tell me about the service, and I remember being skeptical that I would make any money off ads.  I was wrong.  TrafficZ brought me a good income for a number of years.  Their tools allowed me to see which domains got traffic and attempt different ways to monetize those domains differently if they were not making money at TrafficZ.  

I got an email from Bodis.com on January 30th stating:

"On behalf of Bodis we are pleased to announce the acquisition of TrafficZ as our latest affirmation of commitment to expand and improve parking services to our valued users.

As part of Bodis, you will now enjoy the following features:

 

  • NET 7 Payments 
  • Fast Support 
  • Advanced Reporting 
  • Sale Options
  • and more

 

Unfortunately, we have been unable to migrate your TrafficZ account to Bodis due to missing or inaccurate contact information. We kindly ask you to register a new account with Bodis.com to benefit from the Bodis parking platform.

If you have any questions in regards to this process, please don't hesitate to contact Bodis support. We will get back to you within 24 hours!"

I tried Bodis when they first developed their service and was not initially impressed.  Since that time they have spent a good deal of effort developing the service and I hear good things about it.  I'm just not sure it is worth the effort to try them again. I'm pleased with DomainSponsor (now part of Rook Media), Sedo, and NameDrive.  I still get enough parking income to supplement my domain sales income every year, but it's not like the good old days.
