Case Study: 105% Revenue Increase Month 2

In our last issue we presented month 1 results from a Case Study involving an elite domainer who switched 3,000 domains from Parking Company A to the DNS for our Monetization AutoPilot platform.

As mentioned, in the first 30 days after the switch his revenues increased by an impressive 25%. But the gains did not stop there.

Below are results from month 2 vs Parking Company A:

  • Revenue increased by 105%.
  • RPM increased by 188%.

Obviously, this elite domainer was ecstatic with the significant performance improvements.

How high can your revenues and RPMs increase by switching over to full AutoPilot with Maximizer?

Remember, not only does AutoPilot make parking companies compete in real-time for your traffic, but it’s Maximizer feature also enables premium direct advertisers to bid for the same traffic. Competition is a very good thing. Your portfolio RPM will be the big winner.

AutoPilot’s Maximizer Boosts RPMs

Arm Wrestlers

As you know, our AutoPilot platform makes parking companies compete against one another in real time for your domain traffic. Competition is a very good thing, because it drives your RPMs higher.

But wouldn’t it be great if premium advertisers were also allowed into the competition?  Just imagine how much your RPMs would be boosted by this amplified level of competition.

This is exactly what AutoPilot’s Maximizer feature does. It enables premium advertisers on Trellian’s Direct Search Network (DSN) to bid on and acquire your domain traffic. Trellian is the parent company of

DSN’s advertisers love the zero click, keyword seeded direct navigation traffic available via AutoPilot’s Maximizer feature. As a result, they aggressively bid against each other and against parking services.

If an advertiser does not outbid parking companies, then AutoPilot finds and sends the traffic to the highest paying parking company.

How can you get your domain traffic into the bidding wars?  

If you haven’t already done so, set-up an AutoPilot account at and point your domains to our name servers. AutoPilot will immediately start finding the highest paying parking service option for each domain. This powerful technology is free.

At the same time, our team of experts will begin manually assigning keywords to each domain that meets minimum volume levels. When completed, Maximizer will be enabled for those domains. You need do nothing more than sit back and watch those RPMs rise above what you were earning before.

It’s the last time you will ever need to change DNS.

Above Registrar Phishing Email Warning

Earlier today, domain industry blogger Andrew Allemann posted an article about a phishing scam email with the following “From” and “Subject” text.

What is Normalized nRPM?

After you point to our DNS, you will start to see data in the “Normalized” nRPM column in your dashboard.

What does “Normalized” mean? A “Normalized” nRPM uses the actual number of uniques hitting our DNS instead of the “Reported” number of uniques from the parking companies.

Since each parking company uses different guidelines for counting uniques, it would be apples and oranges if you tried to compare one parking service’s RPM to another’s RPM.

We help you compare apples to apples so that you can get a true measure of performance differences between parking companies.

Case Study: 25% Increase in Maximizer Revenue

In addition to making parking companies compete in real-time for your traffic, AutoPilot also enables premium advertisers to bid for the same traffic.

This is called our Maximizer feature. It maximizes the competition for your traffic and therefore maximizes your revenue.

A recent case study illustrates how AutoPilot and its Maximizer feature can improve your revenue.

  • An elite domainer recently moved 3,000 domains from “Parking Company A” to’s DNS.
  • Prior to changing the DNS, our team of experts manually assigned categories and keywords to qualifying domains in his portfolio.
  • Thanks to AutoPilot and its Maximizer feature, total revenue in first 30 days increased by an impressive 25%!

What revenue increase can your domain portfolio get when placed on AutoPilot with Maximizer?

If you have domains with traffic in popular categories, contact us to discuss.

Above Parking Manager Renamed to AutoPilot

Why the name change? Despite what many domainers think, is NOT a parking company. We actually help domainers like you operate at a level above parking companies by making them compete in real-time for your traffic.

Naming our core service “Parking Manager” may have contributed to the misconception that we are a parking service. So it was time for a change.

AutoPilot is the perfect new name because after the simple set-up process, domainers can sit back and let the AutoPilot technology do all the work that they used to do in hunting for the best possible RPMs.

By pointing to Above’s DNS, busy domainers get the following benefits:

  • No more switching back and forth between parking companies trying to find better RPMs.
  • No more endless analysis of stats trying to figure out if changing parking companies has helped.
  • On a domain by domain basis in real-time, the monetization channel offering the highest payout is awarded traffic by our AutoPilot technology.
  • If one parking service tweaks their technology or rev share, AutoPilot will spot it and adjust traffic in or out as needed in real-time.
  • Historical and daily stats are pulled from all your parking services and consolidated on a convenient AutoPilot dashboard for your review and analysis.
  • And best of all, these benefits are free.

It’s the last time you will ever need to change DNS.
