We’re so confident that you’ll love your new Domain, that if for any reason you choose to cancel the lease, this can be done with only one month’s notice!
What is domain name leasing?
It is just like leasing a commercial premises in the real-world, except easier. You get the exclusive right to use and develop a best in class Domain for as long as you wish to remain in contact. Domain leasing allows you to use the premium Domain name at a competitive monthly cost, rather than paying the purchase price upfront. This can massively help cash flow for any new start-up business.
