The reason for leasing
We asked Tom what made him decide to lease a domain name. He told us,
“Leasing meant that we had no upfront investment to find, yet we still got the domain name we really wanted. We literally just started paying the monthly fee for the domain, and got full use of it immediately. We were then in a position to re-evaluate how much seed capital was needed to set up our business, and as a result managed to retain a bigger personal share”.
Leasing the Domains.co.uk way
From the moment Alihoco approached us to lease Allinclusive.co.uk, it was obvious that they had great vision and passion. They asked us to consider some flexibility in the lease price for the initial few months whilst they developed their web site. We were happy to build in a discounted period to help them along with the project, which allowed them to invest more aggressively in their business.
Tom Warsop quoted “Having the ability to reduce our outgoings up until our site went live was extremely helpful and much appreciated by our finance department! Now we are live and taking bookings, Domains.co.uk have increased the lease to the original agreed price and both parties are happy”.
The future for AliHoCo
The site has been live since the middle of December 2010, and is already starting to rank well for the search term “all inclusive”. With a handful of bookings already under their belt, the future looks bright for this enthusiastic young company.
