Long term domain registration

Registering a domain can often be a hassle and comes in various packages such as monthly or annually. Sometimes it seems a lot more convenient to just register a domain for a longer period of time in order to avoid the need to renew over and over again. However, besides convenience are there any additional benefits from registering a domain for a longer period of time? And does this outweigh the cost of having to pay upfront?

The answer is simple: In the long term registering a domain for an extended period of time will only be beneficial for many reasons, the first of which being the previously mentioned convenience. Many registrars will give their customers quite a few reminder emails out of courtesy as it can be easy to forget to renew, but we appreciate that this can be an annoyance to you. Renewing a domain for an extended period of time will alleviate this issue, and give you the freedom to not have to worry about it for many years to come.

The additional benefit of long-term domain registration is that it will usually come with quite a nice discount. This is even more so if you are registering a multitude of different domains which could add up to be quite costly, and so it always pays to be cost efficient if you will have these domains for many years to come. Some registrars may even offer an additional discount for a certain number of domains with a long registration period, so make sure you don't miss out by enquiring as to the amount of discount you can get. At Discount Domains we always look to get the right deal for you at our best price.


Having a long-term domain registration doesn't just help in terms of convenience and pricing, the functionality it provides if also very important. In terms of SEO (search engine optimisation) those domains that are registered for longer (i.e. over 5 years) are likely to be seen as less spammy by Google.. This is because the owner of the domain is actively investing their money in a brand or company long term as opposed to being able to move on to a different domain very quickly if the current one goes wrong. This is especially true for spammy sites, as they will probably only be active for a very short period of time before closing when their ranking goes down due to being a low quality site with low quality links and text. Registering a domain for a long time because of the belief that your business will last is very promising for search engines, and so for this reason you should absolutely look for a 10 year registration, with a free increase in site traffic at a lower cost.
