How do I buy a private region?

There are quite a few options for buying private regions! They can be purchased directly from Linden Lab, or they can be purchased from other region owners.

Note: Residents are not required to be Premium Membership holders in order to purchase private regions.

Land Store

If you wish to buy a region directly from Linden Lab, you can do so from the Land Store. Please be sure to review private region pricing beforehand.

Please noteThe set up fee includes the first month's maintenance fee.

  • Log into
  • Click Buy Land in the black and white menu at the top of your dashboard.
  • Under the Private Islands section, click Learn More.
  • Choose the initial layout for your new region and click Continue. This can be changed and terraformed after creation.
  • Click Choose Full Region or Choose Homestead, depending on which region type you would like to own.
    Please note: A homestead region cannot be purchased without owning at least one full region first.
  • Choose a region name, location, and fill out the "We'd like to get to know you better." section. Click Add to Cart.
  • Choose either "Keep shopping" if you'd like to purchase an additional region, or "Proceed to Checkout" if you are ready.
  • Review your cart and click Place Order.
  • Review your invoice and payment method choice on the Second Life Cashier page. Click Buy Now.

Your region will take a few minutes to be created; however, it will take the map up to 24 hours to update with your new region. For the first 24 hours you can reach the region by specifying it by name directly at the log in page for your viewer, or by teleporting into and walking over from any older, directly bordering regions.
