“Open Source Parking” has just launched.

“ is a domain parking service that helps Free Software and Open Source. Domain parking provides a place-holder web page for an undeveloped domain name. Now you can do some good with those undeveloped domains!

Microsoft has been paying the large domain resellers to move their “parked” sites to IIS on Microsoft Server. Moving the parked customers of a single large reseller,, caused a shift of 4.5 Million domain names, or 5% of total server share from Apache to Microsoft IIS in the Netcraft report. This is an “appearance” change only, because the sites involved have no content. But managers believe figures like those in the Netcraft report, and act on them. It’s time for the Free Software / Open Source community to fight back.”
