1. Access the 1&1 Control Panel
The domain parking service is part of the 1&1 Referral Program, which allows you to automatically earn commissions from promoting 1&1 products and services. In order to start the process, first log in to your 1&1 Control Panel and select 'Manage domains'. Here, you'll find a list of all your registered domains.
2. Select the domains
Using the checkboxes, you can then select any unused domains you want to use for the 1&1 Referral Program. You can choose to park as many or as few domains as you like. When you've made your selections for domain parking, select 'Domain forwarding' in the options, check the 'Forward domain(s) to 1and1.com' box, and click 'OK'. Your domain name will now be parked.
3. Earn commission
Once your selected domains are successfully parked and registered for the Referral Program, they will automatically be forwarded to the 1&1 Store. As soon as a visitor is redirected to 1&1 and makes a purchase, you will earn a commission on that purchase. No effort is required – your domain parking revenue is automatically credited to your account.
4. Reactivate at any time
Should you wish to use your domain for something else, such as building a website, you can just as easily reactivate it through the 1&1 Control Panel. You have total control over when to monetize your domains.
