How To Use: Uniregistry Affiliate Plus Program and DomainNameSales.com Integration

The Uniregistry Affiliate Plus (UAP) Program that allows DomainNameSales.com parking customers another avenue by which they can monetize their names has published a “how to” guide.

Last week Uniregistry announced the new domain name affiliate program, called Affiliate Plus, and a few days later they announced the first integration between DomainNameSales.com and Uniregistry.

Traditionally, PPC parking revenue places a set of advertisements or search links on parked pages. When visitors to the pages click on the ads, money is earned by the owner of the domain name. Participation in the UAP program places other ads or links on parked pages when clicked on and visitors continue on to register, renew or transfer domain names at Uniregistry, a healthy commission (currently up to 35%) is paid to owner of the parked domain. These earnings are in perpetuity for as long as the name is registered by the original registrant. Read more about the program here http://uniregistry.com/affiliates/about.

Participation in this program is easy. It can be done in 2 steps.
