General Questions

What exactly is Alias Brokers?

Alias Brokers was created, designed and is owned & managed by the US company Image Marketing Group Ltd ("IMG"). Image Marketing Group Ltd operates from multiple locations and data centers in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and the United States to insure dependability, redundancy and lightening fast service.

Alias Brokersis a new medium of domain registration services for ALD's (Alias-Level Domains) to fuel both the corporate and consumer Internet communities. We have watched the surge in Internet .com, .net, .org and other various domain registrations grow from a few hundred thousand in 1995 then to well over 10 million in the year 2000 and now in excess of 200 million domains world-wide today. With Alias Brokers you can get a premium domain name and eliminate frustrating, endless searches vs. just settling for any domain name you can find...

How does leasing domain aliases work?

Alias Brokers, is a service, which allows a domain name owner to rent domains or lease alias-level domains ("Aliases"). We offer TLD, SLD and ALD level domain registrations, DNS management, hosting and brokerage services.

  • TLD
  • A top-level domain (TLD) is one of the domains at the highest level in the hierarchical Domain Name System of the Internet.[1] The top-level domain names are installed in the root zone of the name space. For all domains in lower levels, it is the last part of the domain name, that is, the last label of a fully qualified domain name. For example, in the domain name www.example.com, the top-level domain is .com (or .COM, as domain names are not case-sensitive). Management of most top-level domains is delegated to responsible organizations by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which operates the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) and is in charge of maintaining the DNS root zone.

  • SLD
  • In the Domain Name System (DNS) hierarchy, a second-level domain (SLD) is a domain that is directly below a top-level domain (TLD). For example, in example.com, example is the second-level domain of the .com TLD.

    Second-level domains commonly refer to the organization that registered the domain name with a domain name registrar. Some domain name registries introduce a second-level hierarchy to a TLD that indicates the type of organization intended to register an SLD under it. For example, in the .uk name space a college or other academic institution would register under the .ac.uk ccSLD, while companies would register under .co.uk.


  • ALD (New Level)
  • In the Domain Name System (DNS) hierarchy, a third-level domain AKA "Alias" (ALD) is a sub-domain that is directly below a second-level domain (SLD). For example, in www.example.com, www is the third-level domain or alias of the example.com SLD.

    Third-level domains AKA ""aliases" are registered for domain name with a domain name registrar through DNS (Domain Name Service). Alias Brokers is creating the new term "ALD's" for alias-level domains. This allows registered domain owners to offer use of their domains to the public via our platform.



With domain registrations at the highest saturation levels ever... Searching for domain name can be very frustrating and very time consuming, many domain names are already registered, trademarked, registered to businesses with a similar name or just sitting parked wasting away...

Our services are relatively simple, we are creating a new virtual real-estate market by offering alias doomains for rent or lease or for sale (i.e. miami.superbowl.com). Imagine "miami" as being sub-divided from the main property "superbowl.com". Of course some sub-divided properties ("Aliases") will be more valuable than others.

For example would you like to lease domain names like these?

  • miami.beach.com
  • cbs.live.tv
  • txt.message.me
  • stock.trading.info
  • ink.refills.com
  • world.travel.info
  • live.support.com
  • vegas.casino.com
  • dallas.texas.us
  • pet.supply.com
  • holiday.deals.com
  • used.cars.com

How do I go about leasing domain aliases?

  1. To be the first to take advantage of the Alias Brokers platform, simply register with us and we will notify you once your account is active.

  2. Once your account is active you will be able to start searching available alias leases using the Alias Brokers platform.

  3. Then simply select the domain alias you want, submit the registration request, then just sit back and wait for us to do all of the work. If the domain owner accepts the lease, the agreements will be prepared and forwarded to you. Otherwise you will receive a decline notice.

  4. If your lease is approved and once you execute the agreement, you will be required to select your payment method, make the first and last months lease payment (note: some leases may require a security deposit) before the alias domain is activated and ready for use.

How long until I can use my alias domain?

It depends on the domain owner's requirements, some domain aliases are ready to activate immediately (ready in minutes) and others require the domain owner to review and approve. In other cases where we don't represent the domain owner, we have our brokers contact them directly and present the lease agreement. This takes a little ore time as we have to educate them about our platform before we get a approval or decline.


Domain Owners "Leasers"

Why should I lease my domain names?

As a domain owner, you will benefit from Alias Brokers by creating additional revenues from domain names you already own without the hassle of marketing, negotiations, creating agreements or collecting payments. Alias Brokers will supply and screen the prospects, prepare applications, meet all legal requirements, provide lease agreements, and manage each aspect needed to fulfill the services during the lease term.

When you use Alias Brokers to manage your domain names it creates additional value, otherwise lost! To be the first to take advantage of the Alias Brokers platform, simply register with us today and we will notify you once your account is active.

How do I start leasing my domain names?

Start by registering with us today for FREE! Once you have registered and your account has been established you will have access to the back end control panel and administrative interface which will allow you to prepare your domain names for lease. Then you will be able to view the aliases being actively marketed, prospective leases, applications in process, active leases, and payments recieved.

As a domain owner you will need to agree under contract to allow Alias Brokers to act as the virtual property manager or landlord of the domain(s). This will not effect your current use of the domain or active Websites, that all will remain as is. For example if you use "www.example.com" for your active Website, this will not be effected. You keep full conntrol of which aliases we can offer in your control panel.

What is required to get started?

  1. To be the first to take advantage of the Alias Brokers platform, simply register with us today and we will notify you once your account is active.

  2. Once your account is active you will be required to transfer any domain(s) you would like to make available for alias leasing. This allows us to actively seek prospects, perform and automate the tasks leading to alias leases using the Alias Brokers platform.

    This also does require you to use our Managed DNS service for your domain(s), the cost to establish the *Managed DNS is only $4.95 per month and allows for unlimited domains to be added and zone records (see "Managed DNS services" under Costs & Fees).

  3. Then simply activate your brokerage account, complete the online agreements, authorize us to which domains and alias will be available. Once we have available domains to manage from your account, just sit back and wait for the lease agreement to approved or declined.

*Managed DNS service ($4.95 per month) includes domain registration fees paid by Alias Brokers for TLD domains (i.e. ".com", ".net", ".org", ".info", ".biz", ".us", ".co.uk", and more...).

How does Alias Brokers make money?

The Alias Brokers platform, makes money several ways. We offer various domain registration, hosting, management and brokerage services the support the system. For example you allow us to broker lease agreements on your domain "example.com", "apples.example.com" and "oranges.example.com". Optionally each domain will be assigned a price scale from A-Z classes starting at "A" @$3 per month, "Y" @$250 per month and "Z" allowing a custom price per month. (See "Costs & Fees").

For example purposes we are authorized to lease "apples" and "oranges" aliases for $20 (class "E") per month on a one year term and any other aliases would require your approval or price quote.

In the example above we have listed our platform and manual brokerage fees below;

Brokerage TypeLease AmtFee (%)CommissionMonthly Income
Platform$20.0015$3.00$17.00
Manual$20.0025$5.00$15.00

Note: Domain owner is required to have all registration fees paid in advance (minimum of one year*) for length of any lease agreement term. For example to accept a two year lease, domain must be registered for at least two years from beginning date of lease.

*Managed DNS service ($4.95 per month) includes domain registration fees paid by Alias Brokers for TLD domains (i.e. ".com", ".net", ".org", ".info", ".biz", ".us", ".co.uk", and more...).

The first month payment is applied towards a one-off Alias Brokers lease brokerage fee.

Does this require a contract between parties?

Yes, Alias Brokers will require you to enter into an agreement so we can represent and manage your domain(s). You also will be required to execute lease agreement with our client's "Lessee" before any deposits, first months payment is collected or paid to you. The contracts and agreements are very similar to the standard lease agreement you would use for an apartment or house.

We offer two (2) types of brokerage services, the first relies on using the Alias Brokers platform, which overall is mostly automated. This requires minimum effort on your part, as the prices are agreed on in advance which allows us to convert prospects to clients quickly. You will simply need to approve agreement, price and term for the lease.

The second type of brokerage service involves a human broker to negotiate and process the entire deal. This also requires in most cases the escrow account to be used, as typically this will be for larger and longer term leases.

Note: We do charge different fees for each method of brokerage services (see "How does Alias Brokers make money?") for more details.

How do I get paid for my domain leases?

Once a lease agreement is executed Alias Brokers manages all aspects of the agreement including collecting payments from the "Lessee". Once payments are collected, commissions are deducted, then the balance is applied to your account within 24-48 hours. You can the choose to transfer the funds to your Alias Brokers virtual wallet, your PayPal account or have the funds directly deposited into your bank account.

When a client executes the lease agreement and chooses a payment method, the first and last months payment of the lease is collected (note: in some cases a security deposit will be required) and Alias Brokers deposits the last months payment (security deposit if any) into an escrow account. The first months payment is applied towards the Alias Brokers lease brokerage fee.

Note: We are a Delaware registered corporation are not required to collect sales tax, if you are required to pay sales tax in your juristiction, this will be your responsibility.
