1. What is the value of the domain name?This is a key preliminary question for a number of reasons. First of all, the amount of effort you put into a lease agreement will often depend on the value of the domain name. A relatively cheap domain name will not usually call for a lengthy agreement full of complex protections for the domain name owner (the lessor) or the lessee.
Also, a lessee of an inexpensive domain name will often be scared off by a 10 page legal document. Accordingly, the starting point for determining what kind of domain name lease agreement you need, is determining the value and importance of the domain name to both the domain name owner and the lessee.
2. Will this be a "rental" or a "lease to own" arrangement?Just like there are different kinds of car leases, such as a "walk away lease", a "balloon payment lease", and a "lease to own" or "finance" arrangement, so to are there different basic forms of a domain name lease agreement.
