Your question was: Where can I find Godaddy renewal coupons for 2011?.
Excellent point Dotnom! Never even considered that thought - but that would be a huge risk to take into account.
I suppose maybe there could be an honor system setup similar to ebay or something - where renters have to go through an application/screening and have a certain "feedback" rating or "credit" status to be allowed to rent a domain.
Wouldn't hurt if they were required to make a significant "security deposit" in order to offset some of the potential risk.
I know that eventually someone is going to put this together and it will be a real, tangible, viable way of doing business online in the future. Might take 5-10 years .... but I believe we will see the day sooner rather than later...
Well only if there is a setup from the ground up (whois-ownership system) to allow you check who is the owner and who is the one who rents the name.
Otherwise I don't think will be possible even in 5-10 years.
Domains are build for usage and not for renting-reselling.
I believe ICANN also doesn't like the domaining system (part of the reasons for the TLDs release)..
Can't you let me "dream" a little bit over here???.
Renting/leasing names does occur and has for a lot of years. It's just that it is usually not a very popular options for a number of reasons such as cost & control - not only the actual $$$ but the ultimate cost of developing & branding something you don't own in the end.
It can be pulled out from underneath you at the end of the contract period then sold/leased/rented to your competitor (always have an option to buy at the end of the contract or at least the right of first refusal). Your competitor then reaps all the benefit of the time, effort & $$ you put in to it's development.
Hopefully they will at least send you some candy & flowers for being nice enough to create a "turnkey" site/destination and sending your customers their way.....
Actually I just rent out my HostGator but is not the full HostGator (sub), yesterday I purchase mk1.asia and I told my mr2 club friend about the HostGator I purchase, then kind of interested on it but i'm also interested in this HostGator (cause I rebuilding my VW mk1), so we come out a solution by adding mr2.mk1.asia for them and I create vw.mk1.asia also ....
Can this consider HostGator renting ????..
Interesting concept but do you transfer the HostGator or just let them use it? And what about misuse where the HostGator is blacklisted? Then you're sunk, eh?..
I can. Can I borrow the same pillow you use because it's like a dream to me too. I think I must stop scifi..
I would rather rent out ad space on my websites and they come in as advertisers or sponsors and I would rather sell the HostGator or the entire websites instead of renting...
