Sedo using DNS for parking services.

I just receive an email from Sedo regarding "Change of Parking Policy". Changing the domain name parking setup from URL forwarding to DNS. I agree with their justification listed below of using DNS instead of URL forwarding, and I intend to make these changes to my domain portfolio.

Here the message of the email.

"As of January 1st 2012, Sedo will no longer pay out parking revenue for any domains parked using URL forwarding, regardless of the advertising provider source. This is based on a decision from our primary online advertiser, Google, who has stated that they will only monetize name-server (DNS) parked domains. 

  • DNS-parked domains are more secure and less susceptible to downtime.
  • DNS-parked domains load more quickly for visitors, resulting in better CTR and ultimately more revenue. 
  • DNS forwarding settings can be adjusted in bulk by most registrars, whereas URL forwarding must be set up one domain at a time. 
 Over the last few months we have sent out multiple communications (personalized emails and newsletter articles) reminding you of the required switch and deadlines to secure your parking earnings. Google already tested not monetizing URL forwarded domains for 48 hours between November 14 and 16. Unfortunately, we cannot make this change for you, but we can make it as easy as possible.

Please visit your registrar account to switch to name-server parking now (check whether a bulk change option is possible) by entering the following details:

  • Primary name server: ns1.sedoparking.com
  • Secondary name server: ns2.sedoparking.com 
 Should you have any questions whatsoever, please contact our Customer Care team http://sedo.com/us/services/customer-support/?tracked=&partnerid=&language=us or your dedicated account manager.

We would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to make the change. This change will help ensure steady earnings, and using name-server parking will only benefit your parked domains!

 Best Regards,

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
