Website Leasing – How To Make Extra Income With Your Idle Sites

website leasingDo you have a website that really isn’t a priority to develop? And you don’t want to sell it because you like the domain name or the idea behind the site that got you to register the domain name in the first place? Why not become an Internet landlord by website leasing?

Yes, you can lease your site to someone who will use it to drive traffic to their business.

Website Leasing Tenant Types

There are two kinds of great prospective tenants for leasing your website.

1. There’s someone who already has built up a competing site and would like to use your site to drive more traffic to their main site.

2. There are brick-and-mortar entrepreneurs who will lease your site to drive traffic to their local business (restaurant, dentist office, auto repair, etc.).

Site Leases Mean You Keep Ownership

With website leases, you can generate some additional income without giving up ownership of your domain’s registration.

Get The Website Lease In Writing

Working with a qualified Internet lawyer, make sure your website lease agreement is in writing and protects your interests. If you’re going to be a landlord, even in cyber space you need to act like one.
