Quite a few people are using alternative DNS services, like Google DNS (I use Google DNS) to navigate the internet.
However as pointed out by one reader to TheDomains.com, one of the alternative DNS services is now blocking parked pages.
Most troubling the service, dnsadvantage.com is owned by Neustar, which provides registry services for .biz, .us, kids.us, .cn, .tw, .travel, .tel extensions and is actively seeking new gTLD’s to add under its control and management.
The domain to test with is:
Tackboard.com (not one of our domains)
Of course if you view the page and your using a DNS service other than Neustars it will resolve to a parked page.
But if your using NeuStar’s DNS service this is what you get, a message that the page is blocked:
For your protection, you have been temporarily blocked from accessing www.tackboard.com. The website has been blocked for the following reasons:
- Parked Domain: Site may contain excessive advertising including pop-up or pop-under advertising”””
This is certain horrible for domainers, as Neustar continues to grow their alternative DNS service.
To make matters worse, look at what else appears on the page blocked by DNSadvantage.com?
DNSadvantage PPC ads.
So they are blocking the ads on your parked domains and they are serving up their own PPC ads in it place
I would hope all domainers would follow suit.
