    Fabulous Vs Domainsponsor - What You Think?

    I am parking most of my domains with domainsponsor, and am considering moving some to fabulous.
    If you have experienced useing both for same domains- I wonder what you think?
    DS have actually been very good with my financial/credit type domains.

    I don't think you can really know unless you try as some names will perform better under fabs one-click landers, and others won't.
    When using google for counts - use double quotes for usage counts for multiword terms and set "match type" to "exact" for all search volume lookups. Click here for more info

    Hi shoval,

    If you are interested in testing some names with us and need a hand getting started, feel free to drop me a PM or email. I will be happy to help out.

    Cheers,

    AS you can see, the customer service at Fab matches their name. On the other hand, Domain Sponsor is part of a group that evidently thinks it's ok to monitor its customers whois searches and swipe them before they're regged by you.

    Also, isn't part of the oversee group being sued for squatting right now? Could be financially threatening.

    I moved some names to the Premium program and have been pleased with the results.

    Some RPC is higher and they do have an option of a two click lander, that you can populate with 20 personalised keywords.

    The service and suport has been the best I have encountered from any parking company.

    I do not believe this "whois search" fairy tale, more likely they are buying NXD data from ISP's and tasting those. Because someone probably first check "if and what pages are on the domain", if domain unregged it will log with ISP into NXD data, after that goes to check whois.

    Anyway - who does whois search on some whois search site instead of directly via whois.crsnic.net (Verisign) or whois.internic.net (Netsol, but Verisign whois is better, imho) is paying toll for own stupidity. If I go to Bronx with my new Lexus, leave keys in the ignition and door opened and will go somewhere is my stupidity and I had it comming as well.

    It's no "fairy tale". When we first thought Chesterton et al were doing the whois monitoring, we decided to bait them to prove it. I then talked with Jay over at whois.sc (I like the old name better) and that's how they originally got onto the story a year or two ago. We got them to taste all kinds of funny made up names.
