How It Works
Leasing your dream domain is simple and secure
Choose a price plan and apply for your lease
Select your preferred price option and proceed to apply for your domain lease. An application process is necessary because the Owner must verify that your intended use will not infringe on any existing Trademark.
Some domains have a lease price negotiation option. In this case, the Owner’s domain agent would provide you with the specific application link, after you have reached a price agreement.
Important Note: Submitting a lease application constitutes: 1. you are offering to lease the domain name; and 2. you acknowledge a non-refundable N1000.00 naira 3usd application fee is charged.
Owner reviews and approves your application
The Owner will review your lease application and contact you if further clarification is needed. Once the Owner determines your intended use will not be in violation of any existing Trademark and approves your application, your lease will start.
Important Note: At this point your credit card will be charged in Naira Local or United States Dollars (USD). Your payment will be for the stub period of the first month. Future payments will be auto charged on the first of each month.
dotifi updates your name servers
The Owner will transfer the domain to dotifi’s control to manage your name servers. You will have full control of managing your DNS records, including MX records at your web host provider.
Submit your name servers, or forwarding URL details, within your dotifi account from the Lease panel. Each time you update your name servers, dotifi will make the changes on your behalf at the domain registrar.
Important Note: dotifi does not provide a web hosting service or email service.
Make automated payments
Your account will be charged on the 1st of each pay period going forward. By default, your account is set to autopay monthly. However, you may change your payment frequency to quarterly from the Payment Method tab on your account.
Important Note: You may cancel your lease at anytime from within your account without penalty. But there will be no refund for the then-current pay period. For more details, please get our Refund Policy. firstname.lastname@example.org
