How does the domain owner make money
Domain Parking is a simple way to generate revenue from owning a domain name. That's right; you can make money just from owning a domain name. Domain name registrars also participate in domain parking.
That is true!
But are you aware that Registrar makes more money on your domains than you? Though, they give you a parking space and around 5% of your clicks income. Cheers
http://domains.above.com/ is a a registrar and I can tell you that a we make on average $0.50 profit per domain registration per year. For larger clients the profit margin is next to nothing.

Don't forget that from every .com registration:
icann gets $0.18 to $0.20
verisign gets $7.34
Now add the yearly icann fees, servers, hardware, iron mountain fees, chargebacks/fraud, staff etc...
So a registrar is left with next to nothing.
they go for domain sales.they sell domains either through themselves or become a reseller. to become a reseller all you need to do is purchase a reseller account from some provider like this Goresellers.com on monthly or yearly basis. you can just sell the domains and make the profit.
Domain owner can make more money.
Domain owner can make a money by resale his favorite domain name like datacenter.com.
You had register this domain name for Rs.400, but you can sale this domain name for Rs.4000 .
There is an option to build some content for your domains and put some ads... I think this is harder, but it's worth it in some cases.

Besides all of the above, if your domain is a demanding domain, you can sell it to someone who need it for good sum. You make little from parking and the real deal is when you flip. See www.moteldresses.com as parked at sedoMls and waiting for buyer. Cheers.
