TrafficZ shuts down on Wednesday

End of an era: TrafficZ to shut its doors on Wednesday. Thought Convergence sold off its primary operating businesses this year: it sold Agreed to Escrow.com and Aftermarket.com to Igloo . That left domain name parking company TrafficZ. Today, the company emailed clients informing them that the service will cease operations at 12 am on Wednesday. I’m not sure how much domain name traffic was still running through TrafficZ. Thought Convergence offered domain name parking with a first tier PPC provider through its Aftermarket.com platform, whereas TrafficZ is now using secondary PPC providers. Still, if you have any domains sitting on TrafficZ nameservers, now would be a good time to change them. Every year I notice a couple of my domain names pointing to the servers of defunct domain parking platforms. That’s wasted money. TrafficZ was a big player during the go-go years of domain name parking. It was frequently a major sponsor of TRAFFIC and hosted numerous parties during domain name conferences.
