A new look for an old friend

Name Monetizer, Domain Parking News, and Parkquick.com chronicled the domain monetization industry from the late 1990s through 2015.  During this time domain parking could be quite lucrative.  Since then Google has pushed the industry toward real meaningful content by punishing domains that are full of ads.  This benefits the Internet and most users.  It has left...
