Wow .. !
i got a call about the switch..i assume most people did?
I never got anything - what's up?
My parked domains still pull up the page.
Edit: NM -
OK - so the #1 question - where is my $$$?
Thanx - I'll give it a few days.
Also, what's with the logging out every few clicks (even though I check the "REMEMBER ME" check box)?
Seriously, my first impression is NOT a good one - I'm considering taking all my names elsewhere if the GUI is this bad all the time.
Hold on is this why when I go there to login I get a blank page that says Contact support@........
So they are done, no email warning, nothing!
Please confirm if its possible to even see your account again, I cant recall whats there to even move now. Id have to start scanning all my rar accounts, such a pain.

You can go to http://domainapps.com and use the same e-mail to get the account back.
Go to DomainApps.com and enter your Parked.com email address. A new temp password will be emailed to you. Then confirm existing information – you can skip the WhyParked part if you didn’t have an account there also – and the final step says:
We have already started to import your domains into your account. We will send you an email when the process has completed. You will then be able to login to your new Domain Apps account.
Ahhh, I should read more lol
Got it, all setup

So (whypark & parked) became DomainApps?
I only had one Q for them, how long until the parked.com dns is cut for good, waiting for reply.
I loath switching all that dns :(
Not at all surprising. I predicted some of the parking firms would go under when all the new players started appearing on the scene a few years ago. There may be a few more casualties this year what with so many places marketing hard for what must be lesser market vs several years ago, and in a bear market, combined with lower and lower PPC.
This is more indicative of parking, not just Parked.
Expect more of this down the road throughout.
The business dynamic for parking took a dramatic turn when
google decided parked pages dont deserve any ranking nor reward.
This will be the standard.
minisites may be next. Must have unique content.
And minisites are just a glorified parking methodology.

edit to add:
Domains ARE NOT like real estate in the aspect of that many, many, more domains are owned than used.
There is no MLS sales system in place that advertises available domains.
The worst part is, if this was like real estate, domain values would be alot less than they are mearly by the vacancy rate ratio.
That has to change before 'renting out' unused domains becomes a reasonably viable alternative to sales.
How can any of the major parking services move somebody's names w/o ANY type of notice ? I never got any emails, this is crazy. It reflects poorly on their new venture Voodoo too. Since about noon yesterday I've been seeing the blank page and thought it was down for maintenance, I'm just seeing this thread. Parked has been on life support for ages due to their choosing Yahoo/Bing, I always wondered why they didn't just use Google ??
DomainApps will now have all Parked.com and WhyPark domains (the site looks exactly like WhyPark) and there's Voodoo too, couldn't they just have called the new Parked.com Voodoo, or any new name if they wanted to start fresh, w/all our Parked.com domains they already had except now w/the Google feed AND Parked's great technology, user choices and interface ? Had they done that I wouldn't have minded this little surprise they seemed to want to give all their customers. And really, what a PR on Parked's part, all our names to a whole new website w/o any type of advance notice, they must've thought w/the 1 or 2 cents/mo we get from them nowadays there's no need for all those "formalities", I assume they're still use Bing as their upstream provider in this new co...
And there's a $10-$25 fee PER MONTH if you want monetization features ?..... wtf ?
Anyone here has used ParkLogic ? I saw Adam's post, it looks promising, just wondering if there's any feedback so far
Very true - Angel but then again, when your company is going down and it is inevitable that you're going to disappear - would you really care about customer service? Best to keep it quiet so that the new company can keep all the old customers. I am NOT liking the new company at all so I am looking to move everything out. Bodis has been OK with the few domains I've parked with them -maybe it's time to move over there full time.
Also, now I'm losing all my referral income. :(
But it's terrible for them to shut it down, without any notice.. very bad business practice.. even the corner coffee shop when shutting down had the notice " closing down by end of month" giving us an opportunity to find another place..this is B_A_D!!!!
