The rental option provides a low-cost, zero-commitment way to try out your idea with an impressive .com domain while retaining the option to buy, at the same price, at any time.
Renting will FREEZE the current price, avoiding any future increases. You can inexpensively test your idea without worrying that, if your project is successful, the purchase price will suddenly increase. Even if inflation devalues the dollar, you retain the right to buy at $1,000 for as long as you continue to rent.
Twelve weeks is the minimum rental period. The agreement continues for as long as you continue to pay the full rent, as scheduled, every twelve weeks in advance. You can quit at any time, without notice and with no further obligation, by simply not making the next payment.
All online companies should ultimately own their domain, but the lower intial outlay of renting allows more ideas to be tested. A memorable and credible .com domain can make the difference between success and failure.
