It depends on your strategy and objectives. You may have separate website for each of the domains. Another option is to forward/redirect visitors from all other domains to a major one (typically, the .COM). You can also park the domains on a single (major) one, such that when a visitor landed on them the content of the major website is served. Lastly, if your domains generate high volume traffic, you can place advertisements on them and extra income.

Escrow is an account or service held by an independent, trusted third party in a transaction process on behalf of transacting parties. You can use escrow for domain names, website development, custom programming, or any other intellectual property matter.
In a , an independent, trusted company acts as a third-party agent in the selling-buying process. The escrow agent connects the buyer to the seller, and ensures that both parties receive exactly what was agreed to before the purchase. In other words, the.
The third party escrow agent will not only collect and disburse funds, but will also verify domain name ownership prior to the transaction, collect documents or other important materials from the seller, and execute the agreement based on contractual prerequisites.
In general, the process of domain name escrow involves collecting the money from buyer, pushing the seller to transfer the domain name to the buyer and disbursing the money to the seller after the buyer has confrimed receipt of domain name in his account with his registrar.
However, there are also companies which hold both the money and the domain into a holding account to prevent the seller receive the fund without domain name transfer. The following is the general process of a transaction using the domain name escrow.
Agreement between Buyer and Seller. After registering with an escrow company, both parties should agree to the terms of transaction which basically involves price, domain name, method and date of payment.
Payment to Escrow Company. The buyer transfers the money to the escrow company using approved payment method. Once the payment is confirmed, the company will notify the seller to transfer the domain name. In some cases, the seller has already transferred the domain name to the escrow company.
Domain Name Transfer. The escrow company will prompt the seller to work with the buyer and registrar to change the domain name ownership. Different procedures apply to different registrars.
Confirmation of Domain Name Ownership by Buyer. Once the buyer confirms the domain name ownership, the escrow company will inspect whether WHOIS information reflects the buyer's profile.
Disbursement of the Money to the Seller After the escrow company inspects, checks and verifies that the domain name has changed ownership, the seller receives the money and the transaction is complete.
Once again, we remind that a domain can be listed for sale under three different methods:
1. Buy It Now (BIN);
2. Make Offer Only;
3. Buy It Now (BIN) + Make Offer.
Buy It Now (BIN). You can buy the domain straight away, without any negotiation or competing with any other interested party. It's first come, first serve. You will be presented with several payment options: either through PayPal (if the price is not much) OR payment via Escrow services.
Make Offer Only. If a domain is listed for sale with Make Offer Only option as a rule, there is time limit within which the auction will last - 7 days, 15 days or 30 days. During the auction (listing/bidding) period for a domain there will be multiple offers. At the end of the auction, the highest bid wins the auction.
During the auction period the domain is automatically added to your watching list, and you are notified if any other user outbids you. To make tracking easier, the listing ID for a particular domain does not change. if several bids are submitted in the final moments of an auction, the system entends the length of the auction and notifies other potential buyers/bidders in order to allow them the opportunity to bid on the domain before the auction finally ends. At the end of the auction, the highest bidder wins the auction and can purchase the domain name, if the Reserve Price was met for the auction.
Buy It Now (BIN) + Make Offer. The domain listed for auctioning and available for the public to place bids. At the same time, there is an option to purchase the domain striaght away wihout participating in the bidding process. Once sold, the auction automatcially ends.
Although you were the highest bidder at the end of an auction, you may not have won the domain because the reserve price may not have been met or the system extended the auction and another bidder won. If the seller sets a reserve price and the auction ends without meeting the reserve, the domain does not sell to the highest bidder. You can tell whether a seller set a reserve price, but you cannot view the price. To win auctions that include reserves, you must meet or exceed the reserve price.
