Premium Domain Leasing
Similar to a car lease, premium domain leasing gives you (lessee) the right to temporarily use one of our domain names over a specified time period (1 to 5 years) while making monthly lease payments to us (lessor). All our domain leases have the option for you to buy the domain name outright for a predetermined price – anytime after year one (1). Premium domain leasing allows you to access premium (high value) names without the high upfront costs of a normal purchase.
