Advantage and Disadvantage of Long Time Domain Registration?
As we all know that if we want to create a website then we should have a domain name first. Recently we had come across so many comments and a forum where people want to know whether they should go for a long time domain registration or short time domain registration. And Also so many comments have been coming from the same. Surprisingly, everyone had suggested going for a long time domain registration, but no one had informed, “why ?”.
I do agree that a long time domain registration is better than a short time or one-year domain registration, but Why? On the Internet also I did some active searching to find the answer, but no satisfactory answer was found. So this article will make you understand why a long time domain registration is more beneficial for you.
Before we come to the benefits part we should know the domain registration process and its function. The domain name is nothing but the address of your website on the internet. We can purchase a domain from a Hosting company. To have a domain name we have to provide some information, including the desired domain name, your address, telephone no, e-mail address, payment information, the time period and etc.
Once you submit all the information to the service provider, then they would process your request. The registry information will be saved at the “Whois” server. Your domain is considered registered and ready-to-use once all your information has been saved and updated.
We all know that domain registration costs are very less than web hosting. So many companies are providing free domain registration with web hosting. So in the following points, we will explain to you the advantage of long time domain registration.
Reduce your effort: Registering a long time domain keeps you away from a renewal headache every year. It will help you to save time.
Lock your domain: Your domain will be assigned to you for a long time and no one can take that domain at that particular time.
Avoid domain price hike: Domain price is rising every year, but long time domain registration will make you far from the domain price hike.
Be search engine friendly: In google, SEO domain expires date is also a parameter in order to evaluate the legitimacy of a website.
Don’t lose your valuable mail: If you forget to renew your domain, then in that meantime you can't access your email address.
Internet Reputations: If your domain expires after a long time will impact a good impression on the internet as well as search engine also.
Discount on rates: A long time domain registration will give you a great discount on domain price.
As we all know everything, have some advantage and disadvantage, so long time domain registration also has some disadvantage. Now it's time to understand the disadvantage of long time domain registration:
Forgot login details: After domain purchase, we get a login id and password, but in long time registration you may have lost the details. However, it can be easily recovered from your service provider.
Forgot your register: After a long time, you may have forgotten who is your registrar.
Invest more money: A long-time domain will charge a big amount which you may don’t want to pay at one time.
In a general, you can register a domain for one year, and the price is shown by a service provider is for one year. A Domain register provides offers and a huge discount to sell a domain, but the renewal price matters a lot. However, I would like to suggest you to check the renewal price of your domain before you register it.
