Re: Detecting parked domains

The trouble I see with this, is that legitimate web hosts commonly run several domains off one server, distinguishing by host headers.
It is. You need to have pre-determined (manually done) of what servers have these "parked" pages. Then if you see other domains pointing to
the same server, its almost always another "parked domain".
But as Randy points, just because its website is "parked" does not mean domain is not being used in some other way. But in my opinion this still qualifies domain as "parked" because common use of "parked domain" term has to do with content of its website and does not imply that domain is or is not being used in some unique way for email or some other traffic.
