When it comes to buying something, one of the most important concerns is usually the “Price”. Many of us usually ask for cheaper and cheaper prices.
However, for domain registration, it’s simply more than just prices! And this is also why one should register his/her domain name for multiple years.
Let’s find out why.
1. Save time, effort and lower the risks of losing your domain.
Multi-year domain registration prevents your domain from expiring too soon. This can save a lot of hassle as registering an expired domain can be very complicated, and there are risks that your domain might be used for unethical activities.
Here is an example of an expired domain, which was registered by 3rd party to attempt launching an attack on Dell customers. Dell forgot to renew PC data recovery domain in 2017. Source: www.theregister.co.uk
2. Save more with one lump sum payment.
New domain registration can be a lot cheaper (for the 1st year). But when it comes to domain renewal, the fee goes back to normal. Registering a domain for a long period of time can avoid paying for high renewal fees. Moreover, some domain registrars/hosting providers even offer Bigger Discount for multi-year domain registration so that customers can save more.
3. Higher SEO ranking
Google has higher confidence towards those who are serious about keeping their business around for a long time. Renewing your domain for a longer period can prevent your domain from expired and lost your ranking in Google.
4.Tell Google “You’re not SPAM“
Google sees domain registered for a longer time as something more reliable (lower chances of being a spammer). This can influence Google’s sandbox effect for newer sites. In return, it will help your site to be listed in trusted list.
