Tucows Announces Enhancements to Its Domain Parking Programs

    Over $1 million in 'free money' to be shared with resellers in 2008

    TORONTO, Nov. 19 /CNW/ - Tucows Inc. (AMEX:  TCX, TSX:TC), a leading
provider of Internet services to web hosting companies and ISPs worldwide,
today officially launched its domain parking programs that will share over
$1 million in revenues with Tucows resellers over the next 12 months. The two
programs, Parked Pages Program and Expired Domains Program, offer additional
sources of revenue to resellers, including a slice of the growing domain name
re-sale market through a share of Tucows Premium Domains service sales
    Tucows domain parking programs generate additional revenues through the
automatic serving of targeted pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. In the case of
the Parked Pages Program, ads are displayed on unused domain names, while the
Expired Domains Program serves advertising on domain names that have expired.
Under the terms of these programs, Tucows offers a 50-50 split of all net
advertising revenue with the reseller.
    Tucows now offers its resellers a share of revenues from the sale of
domain names in the domain name re-sale market. When a domain name expires,
Tucows may choose to purchase that name and place it in the Expired Names
Program. If, at a later date, Tucows sells the domain through its Premium
Domains service, the company shares 10% of net revenue with the original
    "We'll be putting over $1 million into the pockets of our resellers over
the next 12 months," said Adam Eisner, Product Manager, Domains, Tucows Inc.
"These domain parking programs offer tangible proof of the value Tucows places
on the relationships that we've built with our resellers, and they provide us
with a way to reward our customers for their continued loyalty to Tucows."
    The re-launch of the Parked Pages and Expired Domains programs further
adds to the total domains package the company provides. In addition to Parked
Pages and Expired Domains, Tucows includes free WHOIS privacy and managed DNS
with every domain name sold. Tucows provides domain name resellers with
enhanced domain name search and selling tools including - name suggestion and
the ability to sell quality names from the domain name portfolios of
AfternicDLS and Domain Distribution Network and the Tucows domain portfolio,
through the Premium Domains service.
