We usually direct all traffic from a domain to the auction page, but it got too intense, so we redirected the traffic to a custom ie.to landing page instead.
After looking closer at the stats for the 2 days that we did direct traffic from the domain ie.to to park.io, you can see that it added 200,000+ web requests per day to our servers:
Our traffic went from about 50k requests per day to over 250k! That’s pretty insane. I don’t really know what the deal is, but this domain comes with a ton of traffic, which I am sure can be tremendously valuable if it is used properly.
I know some people are very interested in this domain because of this, so it will be interesting to watch the auction finish this weekend.
