Domain Leasing

What is Domain Leasing?

Similar to a car lease, domain leasing gives a lessee the right to use, we grant you an exclusive license to use a domain name for a specified time period while making periodic lease payments to the lessor.  You can lease domain names to get access to premium (high value) names without the high upfront costs of purchasing the name.

Typical Terms of a Domain Lease

The following are common terms of domain leasing:

Lease term:
Domain leases are usually between 3 years & 5 years in length. Monthly or quarterly payments are typical.

Down payment:
Some Lessors demand that the lessee pay a non-refundable down payment at the start of the lease.  Down payments are negotiated and approved with every lessee depending on your credit history and industry.

Lease Payment Amount:
The periodic payment amount for leasing the domain.

Domain Use:
You are able to fully exploit the domain to start or enhance your business. You develop the domain with a great website filled with original content. You invest in marketing and promotion for your site.  Your site should rank well in the search engines for your industry.  A good domain name will improve every other advertising dollar you spend.  You have access to a branded email address.
