This Domain Name Licence has been designed for use in situations where the
owner of a domain name wishes to lease or licence that domain name to
another business or individual.
The provisions of this licence grant an initial licence period of, for
example, six months, thus providing time for both parties to be sure that
they wish to settle in with the licence for a longer term. Following the
initial period, the domain name licence can be renewed for longer periods,
such as a year at a time. Flexible payment options are also provided for,
allowing for regular monthly payments or lump sum payments for each licence
