You get to lease your domain for as long as you like. We hold the domain in our registrar account, so you never have to worry about losing access to your domain as long as you make your lease payments.
Once you've paid for your first month of the lease, we will contact you to sign our tenant lease contract and acceptable use policy. As soon as these are signed, we'll follow your instructions for how you'd like to control your domain (you name servers, A record, 301/302 redirect, etc). This process is quick and users typically have control of their domain within 24 hours.
Once you've signed our tenant lease contract and acceptable use policy, we'll follow your instructions regarding how you'd like to control your domain. We recommend giving us 3+ name servers to assign the domain to (which gives you DNS control), but we can also point to a provided IP address via an A record, or even 301/302 redirect to a provided domain name. You can change these settings anytime with a quick email to our support desk at email@example.com.
If you'd like to purchase your leased domain, drop us an email and we'll send you an invoice. As soon as you pay your invoice, we will transfer the domain to you.
