Some ideas are so incredibly simple, yet they solve a very obvious problem.
One such problem is domain name statistics.
In this case I’m talking about parked domains. If you buy and sell domains it can help both parties to know how much traffic (and revenue) a domain is actually getting – as opposed to what the seller might like you to think. And of course getting those figures from an independent 3rd party makes them a lot more meaningful.
Andrew from DomainNameWire has recently launched a new service that does just that – and only that. It provides domain owners with a very simple tool to create certificates showing how much traffic, revenue etc., a domain is actually getting.
The system is very very easy to use.
Simply signup and confirm your email address.
Once you’re logged in you can create certificates either for one domain, multiple domains or your entire portfolio (you can upload a text file).
The system currently supports Sedo, Parked.com, DomainSponsor and Skenzo, but other parking companies will be added over time.
Here’s one I made earlier (click to enlarge) showing traffic only (some details have been obfuscated):
It’s an interesting and useful service, so I’ll be keeping an eye on it in the months to come.
