So he dropped all of the .com, .net and .org domain names that didn’t earn any parking revenue or solicit any purchase offers and instead turned his attention to the top-level domain of his home country of South Africa: .co.za.

As a result, his monthly parking revenue increased from $100 to $2,000+ per month, he was able to reduce his domain registration fees from $7 to about $4.50 per domain, and his domain names sell for an average of $X.
