Re: Detecting parked domains
- From: Cory Whitesell

The trouble I see with this, is that legitimate web hosts commonly run
several domains off one server, distinguishing by host headers.
So assuming that because 10 domains point at the same IP they must be
parked, is a bad assumption.

this needs to be "no original content of value"
BTW - for those who are still wondering about the question of detecting
this in semi-automated way, I recommend looking at what nameservers
are used as way to determine if it is likely to be parked domain. Not
perfect but you'll find large number of such domains and if that does
not do it
then looking at common ip addresses of where the domain (www) is pointed
to will help determining this even more.
