Leasing, or renting, a domain is possible. Perhaps you are undecided on the name or you need a domain name for a short period of time. Well, leasing it provides a great alternative.

A few things to note

  • Financing a domain to purchase it with monthly payments is possible. Click here for details. This is separate from leasing.
  • Payments and domain leasing are utilized through Epik (registrar).
  • At any point during your monthly payments, you have the option to purchase the domain at the full price.
  • If you decide you do not want the domain anymore, simply do not pay the next month’s payment.
  • You have a 5 day grace period to submit the month’s lease payment. After that, the domain is available for anyone to purchase or lease and the price is no longer locked. It may go up.
  • You will not receive any refunds for any months that you have already leased.
  • You have the ability to use the domain while leasing it.
  • You agree not to abuse the domain (black-list), provide illegal content through the domain, or send out spam emails.

How does this work?

  1. Find the domain you are interested in. There will be two buttons available, a Buy Now and a Start a Payment Plan button. The blue¬†button is the one you should be clicking to lease the domain. (You will see “+ option to buy…”)
  2. Review the terms, agree to them, and begin monthly payments.
  3. Contact us with any questions or if you need any modifications to the plan before agreeing to it.

Why 60 Months? 

You will notice that we have all (or nearly all) of the leasing terms set for 60 months. There is no particular reason for this except to protect you from the price going up. We will be happy to adjust the schedule for any amount of months before you agree to the lease. There will be no change in price, either. Simply contact us to change the number of months on the lease agreement and we will make the change.

For example, the lease price is set for $50/mo. Instead of 60 months, you feel more comfortable with 12 months. Just contact us… “I’d like to adjust the lease down to 12 months for the domain xr-xxxxxx.com.” We will make the change and reply back that it is ready.

If you lease a domain, the entire time you are leasing, you will have the option to buy the domain for the full price.
