(Service as a software) You can develop thousands of domains in minutes and run Google Adsense across all your domains (if you are lucky enough to get approved for an account.) No Adsense? They also allow you to run your own ads across all your domains. Your domains become a private ad network allowing you to run affiliate ads, ads promoting your business or even selling your own ads to others.
