I am not sure I follow.
What is the difference if owning a domain still requires you to pay for it every year, so it essentially what rent is.
The cost of domain names is so low that I do not see much benefit in saving a couple of bucks renting it, even though if we think about it, renting would be a more expensive option as someone still has to pay the yearly fee, and then make a little profit renting it out...?
