DOMAIN NAME LEASING - Is It Safe?

With Ballot Measure Domains It Is!
Here's Why...

Leased Domain Name Isolation - Our domain names are assigned to your campaign website via our domain registrar's DNS system. Access to the DNS is strictly limited to key BMD employees and strong passwords are changed on a regular basis.

Our Domain Registrations Cannot Not Accidentally Expire During Your Lease - Immediately upon leasing any of our domain names we extend the expiration date of our registration to be a minimum of one year longer than your initial lease term. This assures there is no chance of our accidentally losing the registration during the initial term or available renewal period of your lease.

Free Uptime Monitoring of Your Website - All websites experence occasional downtime due to network or server issues. Rarely are these outages related to DNS issues (the type BMD would cause) but are instead a result of network failures, website coding errors, and/or web server crashes. Regardless of cause, we want to help make your lease with us and your website's uptime worry-free! Upon request, we will use the services of our website monitoring provider, BinaryCanary.com, to check your website every minute ensuring that you (and we) are notified quickly of any downtime conditions.

Transfer of Partial Domain Control To You (Optional - $50 setup fee applies) - We'll temporarily transfer control of setting the domain's nameservers and forwarding to you. How does it work?

  • The domain lease is executed
  • You will need a new or existing Go Daddy account
  • Through Go Daddy, BMD invites you to be an Account Executive for the domain(s) you have leased
  • You accept the invitation
  • We place the domain names you have leased into your dedicated management directory
  • You administer the nameservers and domain forwarding assignments of your leased domains via your Go Daddy account
  • Once the lease term has expired the domains are transferred back to BMD's unleased pool and the Account Executive priviledges are cancelled.

Temporary Transfer of the Domain to you via Escrow.com This shouldn't be necessary but we can do it if its vital to your campaign. Let's discuss your needs.
