WhyPark originated as an alternative to domain parking. The catchy name attracted domain owners who were dissatisfied with their income from traditional parking companies. Over time it probably tied them a little too closely to the domain parking world, so their new name domainapps emphasizes what they DO provide (apps), rather than what they don’t provide (parking).
The first iteration of the platform provides all of the tools that were available with WhyPark – including, of course, the “domain apps.” There is a very easy process you’ll go through to migrate your domains to the new platform. It took me less than a minute. According to their instructions:
The first time you login to Domain Apps, you will complete the migration process. That’s it! Your domains will remain unaffected and you will be able to quickly start managing your domains again. You will receive an email when the migration process has been completed. This can range from under 1 minute to several minutes, depending on the number of domains you have with us.
The old WhyPark nameservers will still work, but you get an added bonus if you update to the new domainapps name servers – you can now switch your domains seamlessly between Parked domain parking and domainapps content and app sites. I haven’t updated my name servers yet – and I can confirm that this step is not really necessary at first.
