No marketplace seems to have a good landing page.

Sedo: annoying cookie warning, people can't even see it is a domain sale page.

Dan: Great landing page, but you need to wait 30 seconds. I can wait, but endusers wouldn't.
Lots of fake sales (buyer not paying) recently. Reason (probably): there is a green "OK" icon, and
buyers are not told what it means. Dan is great for domain investors who want to bid on
hundreds of domains everyday: they can accept-reject without opening negotiation window.
But sellers want to sell to endusers who are not familiar with Dan.

Afternic: High commission (not a big problem if it sells), and it works without landing as well,
so why park. Afternic is for domainers, and something which connects Godaddy agents to domainers.
Endusers wouldn't go to Afternic to buy domains.

If the buyer is a domainer, all work well. Usually it is not. A professional looking,
fast loading, simple (but not too simple) landing page needed.


since, those places are producing sales,
then their landers must be good enough to move inventory.

then again,
it's not the lander that the buyer is interested in.... it's the domain that points to it.

why do I need to park your domain?
There are many reasons why companies and webmasters prefer to park their domain names. Here are a few main reasons why you might want to park your domain after registration.

Domain reservation.
One of the main reasons for parking a domain name is to reserve a name. As I said above, good free domain names can quickly go to another owner. There is nothing worse than coming up with a great domain name and finding out that it is already occupied.
It's not uncommon for people to register domains before they have specific ideas or meaningful content for a website. Domain parking is a reasonable solution to this problem.
You can save this domain for later, and as soon as you start implementing your project, you just need to transfer it to your web hosting.

Protection against cybersquatting.
Cybersquatting is a very real threat that many people have to face. This is a domain registration, for resale. As a rule, such domain names are very similar to other domains or coincide with someone else's trademark. Then, this domain is resold, but at an inflated price.

The most sensational case of cybersquatting was domain name registration . Domain zone .com does not belong to government domains and anyone can buy any domain. And now some people bought this domain before the US government, and it still works separately, although it has no direct relation to the White House.

Nevertheless, despite the fact that since then many countries have adopted legislation that protects the trademark, but still, the court and the case, all this costs money and time. Therefore, it is better to immediately register all related domains and protect yourself from bad people.
Even Donald Trump, even before his nomination for the US presidency, registered more than a thousand domains that had the word trump in them.

Buy time for development.
If you have already decided on a domain before the start of development, then before you start the actual work on creating a site, you must first register it. You can easily park your domain, and do your website. If the domain is parked, no one will be able to take your name. You can also post a message that the site is under development.
