A First Glance at ParkingMinisite for IDNs  offers domainers a quick way to get minisites up and running.  I have already generated 6 IDN minisites using their easy to use platform.  Adsense revenue is split 50/50 based on an algorithm created by the company.

ParkingMinisite offers an in between solution between domain parking and more extensive minisite development methods (i.e. Noomle)

Adding and editing a domain on the control panel is simple: title, description, content, links are entered, a picture is selected and voila!  The site is up and running.   The adding of pictures is simple, and videos and text modification can be made using the 'html' button within the editor.

ParkingMinisite adds additional links based on the keywords entered, plus links to videos and news articles ect.  This is a great feature.    But the best feature of all is that the minisites can be generated with IDNs and the compatible languages include: Spanish, English, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Greek, Arabic, French, German, Portuguese, Hindi, Italian, Thai, Korean, Hebrew, Croatian, Turkish, Romanian, Slovak, Swedish, Lithuanian, Czech, Finnish, Danish, Belarusian and Norwegian.

I recently created the followiing ParkingMinisite websites:

บิกินี่.net  in thai
cajó       A drum in Spanish (although used in English too)   
قلبي.net           cordial, with heart in Arabic
significadodelossueñ  Dream Interpretation in Spanish
お風呂.com in Japanese
小小游戏.net       Little Games in Chinese.

If you are interested in getting an account for ParkingMinisite, you can sign-up here.

I'm pretty happy with the results so far, and I will continue to tweak the sites and add more.
At some point I will do a comparison between ParkingMinisite and Noomle for minisite development for IDNs
