No. IBOD is not a domain name parking service. All of our hosting plans including our budget priced plan could be used for parking multiple domain names by redirecting DNS through your registrar to your website. Keep in mind your bandwidth will be affected on high volume popular addresses.
How secure are your domain name management services?
Very secure. IBOD is cored on human input, not automation so hackers, thieves and hijackers would need to not only possess your email and telephone but other “known only to you” data we set up when you sign on for our service. All domain name sales are processed through escrow.com.
I found IBOD through a parked domain name, is the parked domain name for sale?
It all depends. When a domain is under our management and you find it in pause it may be for multiple reasons such as the client wishes to keep a hosting account active but closed to the public, is working on launching their website or preparing to sell the domain name. We have clients that wish to sell unwanted domain names and we assist with brokering services and advertising and if you find a “not officially listed for sale” domain name managed by us and have an interest to purchase, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will notify the owners of your interest.
