Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Has anybody done that before? Are there any risks? Does the domain kind of belong to me when I start such a lease-to-own arrangement? Or can I still lose that domain name during such an arrangement?
Thanks in advance.
If it were me, I'd go a different route. I'm no pro, but in general terms, in a rent to buy or lease to own situation, the other party retains the title or rights until ALL your obligations are met.
So you could build up a site with someone else having the authority down the line to inform you that Oh, so sorry, you've failed to meet the terms of the lease and therefore your lease on whatadomainname.com is being terminated and you may no longer use the name.
thank you for your response.
That's exactly what I wanted to know.
Well, I guess, doing a lease-to-own arrangement is by far not as secure as registering your own domain.
That would be really crappy if you lose your domain after you already did promotion and other thing.
